Human problem solving by Allen Newell ( Book )
25 editions published between 1972 and 1979 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,034 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The aim of the book is to advance the understanding of how humans think. It seeks to do so by putting forth a theory of human problem solving, along with a body of empirical evidence that permits assessment of the theory. (Author)
The psychology of human-computer interaction by Stuart K Card ( Book )
16 editions published between 1983 and 2008 in English and held by 894 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Unified theories of cognition by Allen Newell ( Book )

Computer structures: readings and examples by C. Gordon Bell ( Book )
11 editions published between 1971 and 1972 in English and held by 660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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 Of the 40 computers described, 10 are based on unpublished sources.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)

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

Speech understanding systems. Final report of a study group by Allen Newell ( Book )
18 editions published between 1971 and 1994 in 3 languages and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Work has shifted from research in the areas of phonetic recognition and linguistic processing to integration of an experimental speech understanding system. This mid-term system, scheduled for completion in April 1974, will be composed of phonetic recognition, linguistic processing, and functional response modules. The system task is the vocal command of a data retrieval, analysis, and display facility intended to support a researcher in studying the acoustic correlates of phonemic events. A first version of an acoustic phonetic 'front end' has been developed and tested with a corpus of 73 sentences. It has been operated in the system environemnt with two different linguistic processing modules, and encoraging results have been achieved in preliminary testing. The tests involved vocabularies of 200 to 500 words and context-free grammars of 111 to 300 production statements

Soar : a cognitive architecture in perspective : a tribute to Allen Newell ( Book )
3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 151 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
Designing computers and digital systems using pdp 16 register transfer modules by C. Gordon Bell ( Book )

Desires and diversions by Allen Newell ( Visual )
9 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and held by 48 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 )
10 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 24 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 )
2 editions published in 1959 in English and held by 18 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)
Learning, generality and problem-solving by Allen Newell ( Book )

Some problems of basic organization in problem-solving programs by Allen Newell ( Book )
5 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 17 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
