Computer Structures utilizes a case study approach to cover 40 distinct computer types, and to provide a taxonomical framework for analyzing the 1000 different computers now extant. Of the 40 computers described, 10 are based on unpublished sources. Approximately one-third of the book is devoted to original machine descriptions and new 'framework' material. (Author)

Mind matters : a tribute to Allen Newell by David M Steier( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on a symposium honoring the extensive work of Allen Newell -- one of the founders of artificial intelligence, cognitive science, human-computer interaction, and the systematic study of computational architectures -- this volume demonstrates how unifying themes may be found in the diversity that characterizes current research on computers and cognition. The subject matter includes: * an overview of cognitive and computer science by leading researchers in the field; * a comprehensive description of Allen Newell's ""Soar""--A computational architecture he developed as a unifi

Soar : a cognitive architecture in perspective : a tribute to Allen Newell( 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

Desires and diversions by Allen Newell( Visual )

9 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Allen Newell presents a retropection of his lifelong pursuit of a single scientific goal: understanding the nature of the human mind. He discusses when a scientific life REALLY starts, how to make diversions and failures useful, and what to do with successes
Soar : an architecture for general intelligence by John Laird( Book )

12 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and Undetermined 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 -- i.e. 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 methods and representations appropriate to 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. We describe its organizational principles, the system as currently implemented, and demonstrations of its capabilities. Soar embodies 11 basic hypothesis about the structure of an architecture for general intelligence: 1. Physical symbol-system--A general intelligence must be realized with a symbolic system, 2. Goal-structure-Control in a general intelligence is maintained by a symbolic goal system. 3. Uniform elementary- representation--There is a single elementary representation for declarative knowledge. Problem-space--Problem spaces are the fundamental organizational unit of all goal-directed behavior. 5. Production-system--Production systems are the appropriate organization for encoding all long-term knowledge. 6. Universal- subgoaling--Any decision can be an object of goal-oriented attention. 7. Automatic-subgoaling--All goals arise dynamically in response to impasses and are generated automatically by the architecture. 8. Control-knowledge--Any decision can be controlled by indefinite amounts of knowledge, both domain dependent and independent. 9. Weak-method-The weak methods form the basic methods of intelligence
The processes of creative thinking by Allen Newell( Book )

4 editions published in 1959 in English and held by 20 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)
