    Since many alerting and other information services rely very heavily on the use of titles to transfer information to the potential user, it is essential that he be aware of the proportion of the information contained in the complete document which will not be deducible from the title and which he will therefore miss. Methods will be discussed for analyzing the relative information content of the t... View full abstract»

    Encyclopedic storage is a method of storing knowledge that avoids unnecessary duplication and provides convenient access to the stored materials. This paper discusses a particular approach to encyclopedic storage of scientific and technical information which can now be implemented. Motivation for this approach is developed here by considering first some of the basic properties of the process of kn... View full abstract»

    Comparison was made between the natural language words and phrases contained in titles and full abstract text and the indexer-assigned, thesaurus-controlled, descriptors used to define information contained in articles abstracted for inclusion in Petroleum Abstracts. Exact as well as word synonym and phrase concept synonym "matches" were recorded. The study indicates that for the system as a whole... View full abstract»

    The information generators and receptors within a society and their connecting links constitute a complex network whose growth pattern must be understood in order to project future data communications needs. To attack this problem a model of society was constructed and categorized according to types of economic activity. Within each division of economic activity were individual units having simila...

    For the past eleven years, a most unusual communications program has been taught at IBM's Electronics Systems Center. This program employs updated communications techniques that were utilized by the author when he organized the first (in industry) creative dramatics, children's theater, and adult drama groups at IBM. The development of the senses¿listening, observing, and remembering¿defines the... View full abstract»
