    The theoretical basis for a dynamic neural network architecture that takes advantage of the notion of terminal chaos to process information in a way that is phenomenologically similar to brain activity is presented. The architecture exploits the phenomenology of nonlinear dynamic systems as an alternative to the traditional paradigm of finite-state machines. It is based on some effects of nonLipsc...

    The vision research being performed under the Strategic Computing Initiative sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) of the US Department of Defense is discussed. The goal is to develop knowledge-based technology that will allow the construction of complete, robust, high-performance image-understanding systems. The projects address four critical areas: visual modeling an... View full abstract»

    The development of a software system for obstacle avoidance that controls a vehicle smoothly, continuously, and safely across natural terrain en route to a goal is discussed. The work, carried out as part of the Strategic Computing Initiative of the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), was performed on the Autonomous Land Vehicle at Martin Marietta's Denver facilities. The plannin... View full abstract»

    The Navlab project, which seeks to build an autonomous robot that can operate in a realistic environment with bad weather, bad lighting, and bad or changing roads, is discussed. The perception techniques developed for the Navlab include road-following techniques using color classification and neural nets. These are discussed with reference to three road-following systems, SCARF, YARF, and ALVINN. ... View full abstract»

    For pt.1 see ibid., p.31-42 (1991). A description is given of EDDIE, the architecture for the Navlab mobile robot which provides a toolkit for building specific systems quickly and easily. Included in the discussion are the annotated maps used by EDDIE and the Navlab's road-following system, called the Autonomous Mail Vehicle, which was built using EDDIE and its annotated maps as a basis. The cont... View full abstract»

    The work reported at the first Japanese Knowledge Acquisition for Knowledge-Based Systems Workshop is discussed, providing both an overview of the field and an introduction to a series of articles on knowledge acquisition. The discussion covers tools, methods, and mediating representations; real-time problem solving; the system-model-operator metaphor; an interview architecture based on dynamic an...

    An approach to acquiring justification that transforms why-questions into what-questions, borrowing the power of existing techniques, is discussed. The constrained dialogue has been implemented in an interactive tool, called ASK, that interviews experts and builds programs. The approach is applied to two different knowledge-acquisition problems; the acquisition of diagnostic strategy (why this act... View full abstract»
