    Cascade, a case-based interactive system that helps technical support engineers solve the problems of customers whose hardware or software has stopped working, is discussed. Cascade has a case library of failures of VMS device drivers and suggests solutions to new failures. The system uses validated retrieval to address aspects of failure recovery that are specific to help desks. Cascade's impleme... View full abstract»

    Archie, a small computer-based library of architectural design cases, is described. Archie helps architects in the high-level task of conceptual design as opposed to low-level tasks such as drawing and drafting, numerical calculations, and constraint propagation. Archie goes beyond supporting architects in design proposal and critiquing. It acts as a shared external memory that supports two kinds ... View full abstract»

    Clavier, a case-based reasoning system that determines the placement of parts made of composite materials in an autoclave, is described. The heating rate of all parts put in an autoclave must be controlled carefully, but their number, shape, and placement can cause significant nonlocal variations. Clavier provides interactive support, using cases to propose load configurations and multiload plans.... View full abstract»

    The Systeme d'Acquisition des Connaissances Deontique (SACD), part of the Acquisition des Connaissances et Analyse de Textes project, which can generate a knowledge base from the logical structure of regulatory texts, is described. SACD can be used by domain specialists who know the text, characteristics and the intricacies of the legislation, or by knowledge engineers who know SACD and can modify... View full abstract»

    A quality expert system (QES) prototype for use in the hot strip mill aspect of the steel-making process is described. The QES monitors the process and recommends actions to the user, but it does not directly control the process. The user must adjust operating parameters or change process conditions to improve quality. The QES's architecture and its knowledge acquisition and knowledge representati... View full abstract»

    A paradigm for diagnostic neural network systems that emphasizes informative data representation and encoding and uses generic preprocessing techniques to extract knowledge from database records is discussed. The proposed diagnostic system differs from other approaches to automatic knowledge extraction in the following ways: by emphasizing the importance of intelligent encoding and preprocessing o...

    Photonic implementations of neural networks, which use electronics to furnish gain and implement neural transfer functions and establish weighted connections between neutrons using incoherent light, are discussed. Fully or partially optical implementations incorporate coherent light and volume or planar holograms to establish interconnection weights, and spatial light modulators to implement neura...
