Belief, awareness, and limited reasoning (1986) by Joseph Y Halpern( Visual )

2 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This lecture discusses three approaches to solving the problems of logical omniscience. In our logics, one agent's set of beliefs does not necessarily include all valid formulas. While one logic deals with awareness, where it is necessary to first be aware of a concept before one can have beliefs about it, another logic presents a model of local reasoning where an agent is viewed as a society of minds, each with its own cluster of beliefs
Genetic programming III videosampler : human-competitive machine intelligence( Visual )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The enclosed ... videotape surveys the new book, Genetic programming III: Darwininan invention and problem solving. The book shows how genetic programming can automatically create a computer program to solve a problem. Fourteen of the results are competitive with human-produced results. Five infringe on previously issued patents and five others duplicate the functionality of previous patents in novel ways"--Container label
Genetic algorithms( Visual )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes genetic algorithms and how they can be used to search the space of possible solutions to find the best fit. Provides examples of problems that can be approached by genetic algorithms. Also presents the concept of classifiers, populations of "if ... then" rules, and shows how these are applied to robot-like animate problems
Events, causality, and the frame problem (1986) by Michael P Georgeff( Visual )

2 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This lecture examines some representations of events and actions to see how the "frame problem" manifests itself. Georgeff discusses classical models of action and presents a new model of action suited to reasoning about dynamic domains. Notions of independence and causality are introduced, and it is shown how these can be used to determine the effects of actions and the persistence of world properties. In particular, Georgeff shows how many of the difficulties associated with the frame problem can be avoided with such a multiagent formulation
Connectionist learning( Visual )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explains what connectionist learning is and how it relates to artificial intelligence. Develops a respresentation of knowledge and a representation of a simple computational system, and gives some examples of how such a system might work
Genetic programming III videotape : human-competitive machine intelligence( Visual )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This 45-minute videotape surveys the main points of the book, Genetic programming III: Darwininan invention and problem solving, and presents genetically evolved solutions to problems of analog electrical circuti design, optimal control, classification, system identification points, function learning, and computational molecular biology. Fourteen of the results are competitive with previously published human-produced results and ten infringe on previously issued patents or duplicate the functionality of previously issued patents"--Container label
Overview of inductive machine learning( Visual )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Defines inductive learning, provides examples of inductive learning algorithms, and discusses the issues of introducting bias into inductive learning algorithms and the minimum description length principle
Bayesian learning by Peter Cheeseman( Visual )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Cheeseman develops in a theoretical manner the basic idea surrounding the concept of bayesian learning. A major topic of this area of machine learning is bayesian inference. A large part of the lecture is related to probabilities and various examples are presented
AI paradigms and cognition by Paul S Rosenbloom( Visual )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this talk, Rosenbloom explores in depth the cognitive paradigm which, like cognitive psychology, is based on concepts of symbol processing and architectures. Rosenbloom describes the foundational assumptions and research methodologies of this approach and presents a case study that crosses the boundaries between human and machine learning
Producing explanations of expert systems by William R Swartout( Visual )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This lecture focuses on the technology for producing explanations of expert systems--explanation is usually regarded as a necessary feature for user acceptance of consultant-type expert systems, and an inportant tool in debugging and extending an expert system. This lecture covers explanation methods and techniques for maximizing the utility of the explanation facility. Relevant work in expert systems, natural language, and knowledge representation is also convered
Digital design and computer architecture by David Money Harris( Book )

2 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Digital Design and Computer Architecture takes a unique and modern approach to digital design. Beginning with digital logic gates and progressing to the design of combinatorial and sequential circuits, Harris and Harris use these fundamental building blocks as the basis for what follows: the design of an actual MIPS processor. Verilog and VHDL are integrated throughout the text in examples illustrating the methods and techniques for CAD-based circuit design. By the end of this book, readers will be able to build their own microprocessor and will have a top-to-bottom understanding of how it works. David Harris and Sarah Harris have combined an engaging and humorous writing style with an updated and hands-on approach to digital design."--Jacket
Evaluating applied and empirical artificial intelligence by Paul R Cohen( Visual )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This lecture focuses on the pressing problem of evaluation in AI research and application development. Cohen discusses the role of evaluation in a five-state, cyclic model of empirical AI projects, presenting numerous evaluation criteria and methods. The orientation of the lecture is pragmatic, emphasizing concrete recommendations for integrating evaluation into Al practice
AI as an experimental science by Bruce G Buchanan( Visual )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Buchanan maintains that AI suffers from a lack of experimentation-and maintains that careful work in testing hypotheses experimentally can greatly enhance model building and theoretical analysis in AI. Buchanan's "empirical approach" seeks to gain more useful results out of the complexity of problems addressed by AI research
Case-based learning by William D Mark( Visual )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses case based reasoning in machine learning
Is there a standard AI paradigm? by Terry Winograd( Visual )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses the fundamentally different starting points for modelling intelligence and the limitations on what can be done, theoretically with the rationalistic (or logic) approach, and empirically with the emergent approach
Some expert systems need common sense by John McCarthy( Visual )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

AI versus common sense : the case for inelegance by Douglas B Lenat( Visual )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lenat discusses two key issues in achieving artificial intelligence: how to represent knowledge and how to control its' use in drawing new inferences. He goes on to deal with some of the important attempts to put these together into intelligent systems. Also addressed are the mechanisms by which machines could be given general knowledge and the ability to analogize, select and apply appropriate knowledge, represent substances, and access, compute, deduct, or guess answers
Eleventh international joint conference on artificial intelligence : 1989 videotape program by International joint conference on artificial intelligence( Visual )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eleven videopapers submitted for the Conference give an "overview of current applications involving AI technology: in robotics, vision, language, planning, modeling, design, control computer-aided instruction, expert systems, and diagnosis."

Knowledge acquisition : building and maintaining the knowledge base for expert systems by Edward Hance Shortliffe( Visual )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The process of mapping the ill-structured knowledge of a complex domain into a form suitable for machine coding is among the most difficult and time-consuming parts of building an expert system. After a brief discussion of the conventional knowledge engineering approach to knowledge acquisition, this presentation focuses on efforts to develop computer-based tools to facilitate the process. Example systems, TEIRESIAS and ROGET, RADIX and SEEK, and OPAL are discussed as representing distinct approaches to the knowledge acquition process
