Representation of knowledge : a section of the handbook of artificial intelligence edited by Avron Barr and Edward Feigenbaum by Avron Barr( Book )

12 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is the section of the Handbook of Artificial Intelligence about knowledge representation research. The Handbook is a compendium of articles about AI ideas, techniques, and systems intended for non-AI scientists, engineers, and students. The material in this report discusses the problems addressed in knowledge representation research in AI and suggests some ways of comparing the various representation schemes. Additional articles describe the AI representation techniques: logic, procedural representations, semantic nets, production systems, direct (analogical) representations, semantic primitives, and frames.

Artificial intelligence : cognition as computation by Avron Barr( Book )

6 editions published in 1982 in English and Undetermined and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ability and compulsion to know are as characteristic of our human nature as are our physical posture and our languages. Knowledge and intelligence, as scientific concepts, are used to describe how an organism's experience appears to mediate its behavior. This report discusses the relation between artificial intelligence (AI) research in computer science and the approaches of other disciplines that study the nature of intelligence, cognition, and mind. The state of AI after 25 years of work in the field is reviewed, as are the views of its practitioners about its relation to cognate disciplines. The report concludes with a discussion of some possible effects on our scientific work of emerging commercial applications of AI technology, that is, machines that can know and can take part in human cognitive activities

The Computer as a Tutorial Laboratory: The Stanford Bip Project by Avron Barr( Book )

3 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The basic Instructional Program (bip) is an interactive problem-solving laboratory that offers tutorial assistance to students solving introductory programing problems in the basic language. After a brief review of the rationale and origins of the bip instructional system, the design and implementation of BIP's curriculum information network are described. The most recently developed features of the bip system are briefly reviewed. An annotated student dialog illustrates a typical bip session. The results of an experiment comparing bip with a fixed linear path through the same curriculum are reported. (Author/EH)

A Rationale and Description of the Basic Instructional Program by Stanford University( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A course in computer programming is being developed as a vehicle for research in tutorial modes of computer-assisted instruction. Methods for monitoring and aiding the student as he works on interesting programming problems are employed. The problems are individually selected via an optimization scheme based on a model of the student's ability and difficulties. After a brief overview of work done at Stanford in tutorial CAI and the teaching of procedural skills, the functional elements of the BASIC Instructional Program, its BASIC interpreter, curriculum, solution analysis, and interactive assistance during programming, are described.

The Improvement and Individualization of Computer-Assisted Instruction by Richard C Atkinson( Book )

2 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report summarizes research on the improvement and individualization of instruction, with reference to a theoretical framework of optimization, and specific applications in computer-assisted instruction (CAI). Two projects involved the acquisition of foreign-language vocabulary items. Experiments with Spanish and Russian items showed that the method could be a powerful aid in building and retaining a large vocabulary of foreign words. Two CAI courses in computer programming were developed. The first provided instruction and practice in the Algebraic Interpretive Dialogue (AID) language, and was used to investigate various optimization and individualization techniques, on the level of single problems as well as over entire lessons. The BASIC Instructional Program (BIP) was developed as a vehicle for CAI research in optimal selection of instructional material by means of an internally stored curriculum description and a model reflecting the student's changing state of knowledge. Each project is discussed briefly, with references to the publications that describe the research in detail
Partnerships in the enterprise the changing role of I/S( Visual )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program explains why the traditional role of the IS professional as a primarily technical individual is being replaced by that of a business professional with technical expertise and explains how this qualitative change can be effected. It describes how IS goals can and should be brought into line with business goals, and how a strategic IS plan should be an elementary component of the corporate strategic plan
