    Complex, flexible, computer programs can be written easily in list-processing languages. Storage registers are linked together in arbitary sequences to form lists and list structures, which are the units of the languages. Special provisions are made for recursive subroutines and for hierarchical programs. These particular languages have been used to write game-playing, problem-solving, and other `...

    Methods of reading for the blind are discussed, mindful of the human-factors and systems-engineering concepts involved. Machines to allow independent reading of ink-print by the blind are classified in terms of cost, complexity, auditory or tactile output, usefulness, ease of operation, and learning problems. Current experiments in character recognition are briefly mentioned, and in conclusion ref... View full abstract»

    Men and computers could cooperate more efficiently in real-time systems¿and perhaps in long-range planning too¿ if a man could tell the computers how he wanted decisions made, and then let the machine make the decisions for him. In the next few years there will probably be considerable pressure on system designers to adopt such arrangements. The problem of enabling a man to convey his decision r... View full abstract»

    How do problem-solving programs work? How much has been accomplished with them so far? What kinds of developments may be anticipated over the next few years? Two research programs under development are discussed as illustrations of the evolution of heuristic programming systems. Applications of these techniques in studies of problem solving in mathematics and symbolic logic, in industrial and busi... View full abstract»

    This listing is intended as an introduction to the literature on Artificial Intelligence¿i.e., to the literature dealing with the problem of making machines behave intelligently. We have divided this area into categories and cross-indexed the references accordingly. Large bibliographies, without some classification facility, are next to useless. This particular field is still young, but there are... View full abstract»

    The rate at which a man can transmit information in simple pursuit and compensatory systems is measured. Highest transmission rates are obtained with input signals whose power-density spectra correspond to RC-filtered noise. Pursuit systems gave higher transmission rates than compensatory.
