  • Artificial intelligence

    There are numerous indications that the field of Artificial intelligence (AI) is now well established: a specialized journal is entering its third year of publication; the third major biennial conference organized by an ad hoc international council will be held in August; several textbooks and paper collections have been published, and several Computer Science Departments have AI specialties; and some important disciplines whose roots are in AI, such as Pattern Recognition and Symbolic Algebraic Manipulation, have already spun off as independent areas. Still, when I identify my field as Artificial intelligence, I frequently am met by blank stares, snickers, or questions concerning whether that means building simulated rats or planting false military rumors. I hope this issue of COMPUTER will clear up some of the confusion. View full abstract»

    A major theme in artificial intelligence research has been the quest for methods for common-sense reasoning about actions and their effects. Such methods, when implemented as computer programs, are called automatic problem solvers, and are the subject of this papers. View full abstract»

  • Computer vision

    “Intelligent” computers require knowledge of their environment, and the most effective means of acquiring such knowledge is by seeing. Vision opens a new realm of computer applications. Weather analysis from cloud maps and medical diagnosis from x-rays and blood cell counts are two of many high volume data processing tasks that require pictorial input. Man-machine communication will be facilitated if a person can directly show the computer a real object, rather than describe it symbolically. Designers, for example, could then easily obtain a computerized structural analysis of scale models. View full abstract»

  • Research in natural language

    One of the most active areas of Artificial Intelligence research today is the understanding of natural language. From the earliest days of computing, people have been intrigued by the idea of communicating easily with computers. In the past few years, new techniques and larger systems have combined to open new possibilities for expressing ideas to computers in natural language. Question answering systems are approaching a level useful in real applications areas. Advanced computing applications like automatic programming will base their interaction with the user on natural language capabilities. In almost every area of computing, it is easy to imagine ways in which language understanding could make computers more accessible, not only for those who use them now, but for a much wider range of people without special training.
