Preliminary analysis of a breadth-first parsing algorithm : theoretical and experimental results by W. A. P Martin( Book )

4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We will trace a brief history of context-free parsing algorithms and then describe some representation issues. The purpose of this paper is to share our philosophy and experience in adapting a well-known context free parsing algorithm (Earley's algorithm and variations thereof) to the parsing of a difficult and wide ranging corpus of sentences. The sentences were gathered by Malhotra in an experiment which fooled businessmen users into thinking they were interacting with a computer, when they were actually interacting with Malhotra in another room. The Malhotra corpus is considerably more difficult than a second collection published by the LADDER Group. Both collections are given in the appendices. Section 4 compares empirical results obtained from these collections against theoretical predictions. (Author)
Coping with syntactic ambiguity, or, How to put the block in the box on the table by Kenneth Church( Book )

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

Sentences are far more ambiguous than one might have thought. There may be hundreds, perhaps thousands of syntactic parse trees for certain very natural sentences of English. This fact has been a major problem confronting natural language processing because it indicated that it may require a long time to construct a list of all the parse trees, and furthermore, it isn't clear what to do with the list once it has been constructed. This list may be so numerous that it is probably not the most convenient representation for communication with the semantic and pragmatic processing modules. In this paper we propose some methods for dealing with syntactic ambiguity in ways that take advantage of certain regularities among the alternative parse trees. These regularities will be expressed as linear combinations of ATN networks, and also as sums and products of formal power series. We will suggest some ways that practical processor can take advantage of this modularity in order to deal more efficiently with combinatoric ambiguity. In particular, we will show how a processor can efficiently compute the ambiguity of an input sentence (or any portion therof). Furthermore, we will show how to compile certain grammers into a form that can be processed more efficiently. In some cases, including the every way ambiguous grammar (e.g., conjuction, prepositional phrases, noun-noun modification), processing time will be reduced from 0 (n superscript 3) to 0 (n). Finally, we will show how to uncompile certain highly optimized grammars into a form suitable for linguistic analysis. (Author)
Design of a program for expert diagnosis of acid base and electrolyte disturbances by Ramesh S Patil( Book )

3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This research develops the diagnostic component of an interactive system for providing expert advice for the diagnosis, therapy and ongoing management of patients with acid-base and electrolyte disturbances. We have developed a hierarchic representation of a patient's illness which unifies the known facts about the patients, their suspected interrelationships, the hypotheses and how hypotheses account for various known and hypothesized facts. An expectation driven problem solver based on the hypothesize and reformulate paradigm performs the diagnosis. (Author)
Language restrictions, taxonomic classification, and the utility of representation services by Jon Doyle( Book )

Two dogmas of knowledge representation : language restrictions, taxonomic classification, and the utility of representation services by Jon Doyle( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Levesque and Brachman argue that in order to provide timely and correct responses in the most critical applications, general purpose knowledge representation systems should restrict their languages by omitting constructs which require non-polynomial (or otherwise unacceptably long) worst-case response times for sound and complete classification of concepts in taxonomic hierarchies. They also advocate separating terminological and assertional knowledge and restricting the classifier to operate over the purely terminological information. We demonstrate that restricting the terminological language and classifier in these ways limits these "general-purpose" facilities so severely that they are no longer generally applicable. As an alternative, we suggest that general purpose knowledge representation systems should provide fully expressive languages and terminological classification over relevant contingent as well as definitional information. We also argue that logical soundness, completeness, and worst-case time complexity are inadequate measures for evaluating the utility of representation services, and that this evaluation should employ the broader notions of utility and rationality found in decision theory. In particular, we suggest that general purpose representation services should provide rational management of inference tools, "approximate" forms of recognition, and classification of definitions involving defaults

An information mediator network for tasks in dynamic environments by Ramesh S Patil( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "Coordination of activities among information workers and services, tracking and managing activities, and intelligent distribution of information are essential to the efficient operation of any large enterprise. This is particularly important in the health-care domain, where many different organizations must cooperate to provide patient care reliably in a dynamically changing environment. In this paper we present a distributed system that supports cooperative problem solving, activity management, and intelligent delivery of information in dynamic and unreliable environments. The system consists of a network of task/content managers (TCMs). Each TCM manages a group of related agents. It maintains up-to-date information on availability, operational status, and activities of participating agents, and it acts as a mediator between service requesters and service providers. In addition, the TCM acts as a representative for its agents with other TCMs allowing different groups of agents to collaborate with one anothers [sic]. This paper describes the system architecture, its implementation and capabilities including matchmaking, plan monitoring and failure recovery. Our system has been used in prehospital emergency patient information management applications."
