Several simulated research problems have been programmed for the IBM 704 computer. Six different empirical research strategies have also been programmed for the computer. The "research problems" are "solved" by the computer using one of the six strategies to learn which is best. The computer uses each research strategy on each problem several times to get a statistical evaluation of its effectiveness. The work is not complete as yet; however, it has already had an influence on the way we are tackling some of our research problems.
