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 7 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 )
1 edition 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
Overview of inductive machine learning ( Visual )
1 edition 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
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
Connectionist learning ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 5 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
AI paradigms and cognition (1987) by Paul S Rosenbloom ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 4 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
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
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
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
Representation and reasoning in machine vision (1987) by Martin A Fischler ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Assumption-based truth maintenance and its application to diagnosis by Johan Kleer ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This lecture surveys the development of truth-maintenance systems, from dependency-directed backtracking to assumption-based truth maintenance (ATMS). The special capabilities of ATMS, which allow effective and efficient work with inconsistent information and which motivate a new kind of problem-solving architecture, are explored in detail. Its use in a variety of AI applications is discussed with special emphasis on its use in the diagnosis of simple digital circuits
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 ( 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."
Bayesian learning by Peter Cheeseman ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Peter Cheeseman of the NASA Ames Research Center explains the basic theory of Bayesian learning
Automating the knowledge acquisition process by John McDermott ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This lecture proposes methods for overcoming the complexities of current AI systems. McDermott maintains that expert system building can be made substantially simpler if we gain a better understanding of current, effective problem-solving methods. He advocates developing knowledge acquisition tools that use this understanding to determine what knowledge needs to be acquired to perform certain tasks and how that knowledge should be represented. Descriptions of example tools are provided
Expert systems, constraint satisfaction and protein structure determination (1986) by Bruce G Buchanan ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An important class of problems for which artificial intelligence methods are not well codified is constraint satisfaction. Bruce Buchanan describes Stanford's PROTEAN project which focused on a spatial constraint satisfaction problem in which determining three-dimensional spatial positions of atoms in a protein structure is the goal. Constraints are partly numerical and partly symbolic and those inferred from the data may not be satisfiable together. A blackboard model of reasoning, implemented in the BB1 framework, is used in PROTEAN
Is there a standard AI paradigm? (1987) by Terry Winograd ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Most approaches to AI share assumptions about the nature of representation, symbol manipulation, and intelligence. The approaches are all limited by basic problems of representation, assuming (falsely?) a linguistic nature to thought. Winograd describes an alternative "hermeneutic" orientation and relates it to current problems in AI research
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
