    The author examines and refutes seven common beliefs regarding expert systems tools. His arguments are based on several studies that used a variety of tools to build both real-world and synthetic systems. The misconceptions addressed add to the difficulty of selecting a tool to meet the requirements of a specific application.<> View full abstract»

    The EDISON project, which is developing computational models that can solve problems and reason creatively about mechanical devices, is discussed. The project addresses two general issues: the breadth of and interactions between knowledge needed for creative reasoning, and the amount of knowledge needed to describe mechanical devices, their behavior, function, and use. This approach supports mecha... View full abstract»

    A medical diagnosis system that dynamically integrates two types of problem-solving agents to solve large problems is presented. It integrates a deep/model-based/fundamental type of system with a shallow/compiled/empirical type system. A functional-representation model serves as a deep reasoner, giving causal credence to diagnostic conclusions and finding interactions between partial conclusions t... View full abstract»

    An automated control system monitors a system and automatically eliminates faults, but such control systems are themselves subject to failures. SEPT (Suivi d'Evenements dans les Postes du Transport), a functioning knowledge-based system for diagnosing control systems in extra-high-voltage power networks, examines both systems to give two kinds of output: a synthetic diagnostic conclusion and a mod...

    Some dynamic-scene and motion analysis techniques developed to support the DARPA Strategic Computing program's autonomous land vehicle effort are described. The approach, called dynamic reasoning from integrated visual evidence (DRIVE), addresses the key problems of estimating robot motion from visual cues, detecting and tracking moving objects, and constructing and maintaining a global dynamic re...

    For pt.I see ibid., vol.7, no.1, p.45-52 (1992). Dynamic-scene and motion analysis techniques developed to support the DARPA Strategic Computing program's autonomous land vehicle effort are described. Motion-understanding techniques using displacement fields, 3-D motion and structures, and feature correspondence, which show promise, are discussed, and the issues to be addressed and problems to be ...
