Universal subgoaling and chunking : the automatic generation and learning of goal hierarchies by John Laird( Book )

22 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rarely do research paths diverge and converge as neatly and productively as the paths exemplified by the two efforts contained in this book. The story behind these researches is worth recounting. The story, as far as I'm concerned, starts back in the Fall of1976, when John Laird and Paul Rosenbloom, as new graduate students in computer science at Carnegie-Mellon University, joined the Instructible Production System (IPS) project (Rychener, Forgy, Langley, McDermott, Newell, Ramakrishna, 1977; Rychener & Newell, 1978). In those days, production systems were either small or special or both (Newell, 1973; Shortliffe, 1976). Mike Rychener had just completed his thesis (Rychener, 1976), showing how production systems could effectively and perspicuously program the full array of artificial intelligence (AI) systems, by creating versions of Studellt (done in an earlier study, Rychener 1975), EPAM, GPS, King-Pawn-King endgames, a toy-blocks problem solver, and a natural-language input system that connected to the blocks-world system
Information processing language-V manual by Rand Corporation( Book )

Speech understanding systems. Final report of a study group by Allen Newell( Book )

26 editions published between 1971 and 1994 in 3 languages and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report provides an evaluation of the state of the art and a program for research towards the development of speech understanding systems. To assess the possibility of such systems four specific tasks were considered and evaluated. Problem areas are identified and discussed leading to the conclusions on the technical aspects of the study. A possible program for research and development is presented. (Author)
Mind matters : a tribute to Allen Newell by David Steier( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Allen Newell is most often described as one of the founders of artificial intelligence, but he could equally well be described as a founder of cognitive science, the field of human-computer interaction, or the systematic study of computational architectures. The symposium held at Carnegie Mellon University in his honor paid tribute to the breadth of his career with contributions from top scientists in all these disciplines. Their papers are included in this volume, along with commentaries about the implications of the presentations for Soar, a computational architecture for intelligent action to whose design Allen devoted the last decade of his life. The volume therefore forms a remarkable snapshot of science in the style that Allen inspired, simultaneously striving for integrative coherence in theory building while accounting for a wide range of detailed empirical data in cognitive and computer science
The Soar papers : research on integrated intelligence( Book )

Soar : a cognitive architecture in perspective : a tribute to Allen Newell by John A Michon( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Soar: A Cognitive Architecture in Perspective represents a European perspective on Soar with the exception of the special contribution from Allen Newell arguing for Unified Theories of Cognition. The various papers derive from the work of the Soar Research Group that has been active at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands, since 1987. The work reported here has been inspired in particular by two topics that precipitated the group's interest in Soar in the first place -- road user behavior and the temporal organization of behavior, more specifically planning. At the same time, the various contributions go well beyond the simple use of Soar as a convenient medium for modeling human cognitive activity. In every paper one or more fundamental issues are raised that touch upon the very nature and consistency of Soar as an intelligent architecture. As a result the reader will learn about the operator implementation problem, chunking, multitasking, the need to constrain the depth of the goal stack, and induction, etc. Soar is still at a relatively early stage of development. It does, nevertheless, constitute an important breakthrough in the area of computer architectures for general intelligence. Soar shows one important direction that future efforts to build intelligent systems should take if they aim for a comprehensive, and psychologically meaningful, theory of cognition. This is argued in a powerful way by Newell in his contribution to this volume. For this reason, the Soar system will probably play an important integrative role within cognitive science in bringing together important subdomains of psychology, computer science, linguistics, and the neurosciences. Although Soar is not the only `architecture for intelligence', it is one of the most advanced and theoretically best motivated architectures presently available. Soar: A Cognitive Architecture in Perspective is of special interest to researchers in the domains of cognitive science, computer science and artificial intelligence, cognitive psychology, and the philosophy of mind

Soar : an architecture for general intelligence by John Laird( Book )

12 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ultimate goal of work in cognitive architecture is to provide the foundation for a system capable of general intelligent behavior. That is, the goal is to provide the underlying structure that would enable a system to perform the full range of cognitive tasks, employ the full range of problem-solving mehtods and representations appropriate for the tasks, and learn about all aspects of the tasks and its performance on them. This article presents Soar, an implemented proposal for such an architecture. The authors describe its organizational principles, the system as currently implemented, and demonstrations of its capabilities. Keywords: Artificial intelligence; Hypotheses
The processes of creative thinking by Allen Newell( Book )

7 editions published in 1959 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We ask first whether we need a theory of creative thinking distinct from a theory of problem solving. Subject to minor qualifications, we conclude there is no such need - that we call problem solving creative when the problems solved are relatively new and difficult. Next, we summarize what has been learned about problem solving by simulating certain human prblem solving pro cesses with digital computers. Finally, we indicate some of the differences in degree that might be observed in comparing relatively creative with relatively routine problem solving. (Author)
A guide to the general problem-solver program GPS-2-2 by Allen Newell( Book )

Some problems of basic organization in problem-solving programs by Allen Newell( Book )

4 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Several examples of organizational problems dealing with the construction and application of problem-solving programs are examined. The first example is how to store information that is created dynamically and unpredictably during the operation of the program. The second example is how to organize large, complex processes. The third example is how to have many different kinds of goals producing many different kinds of results, and yet be able to use these results in the rest of the problem. The fourth example is how to avoid the rigidities of many special routines when building up highly particular and inhomogeneous collections of data. The last example concerns the general problem of how to remember the past. All of these problems stem from the fact that problem-solving programs are more dynamic and require more flexibility than we know how to provide. By solving these organizational problems in this context we can expect to develop the appropriate ways to organize complex programs that require flexibility in many applied areas as well
