    Printers are always seeking higher productivity by increasing their production rates and minimizing process delays. When process delays have known causes, they can be mitigated by acquiring causal rules from human experts and then applying sensors and automated real-time diagnostic devices to the process. However, for some delays the experts have only weak causal knowledge or none at all. In such ... View full abstract»

    MIT's Voyager system is an attempt to explore issues related to a fully interactive spoken-language system and natural language understanding. The system helps users get from one location to another within a specific geographical area, and can provide information about certain objects in the area. The current version of Voyager focuses on the city of Cambridge, Massachusetts, between MIT and Harva... View full abstract»

  • Spoken variable initiative dialog: an adaptable natural-language interface

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):45 - 50

    Several obstacles have prevented spoken natural-language systems from providing the required performance, including inflexibility, ineffective goal-seeking, and poor speech recognition. However, these problems can be circumvented by embedding the speech recognition technology within a dialog processing mechanism. Such a variable initiative dialog is a major advance that lets natural-language syste... View full abstract»

  • Applying parallel processing to natural-language processing

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):36 - 44
    Cited by:  Papers (1)  |  Patents (4)

    Massively parallel computers offer not only improved speed but also a new perspective on computer vision, production systems, neural networks, and other AI applications. However, not much work has been done to apply parallel processing to natural-language processing, even though most sequential natural-language systems slow down as knowledge bases grow to realistic sizes and as linguistic features...

    Processing natural language such as English has always been one of the central research issues of artificial intelligence, both because of the key role language plays in human intelligence and because of the wealth of potential applications. Many of the knowledge representation and inference techniques that have been applied successfully in knowledge-based systems were originally developed for pro... View full abstract»

  • A machine-learning apprentice for the completion of repetitive forms

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):28 - 33
    Cited by:  Papers (9)  |  Patents (1)

    The authors have developed a software environment in which workers can complete repetitive forms, and a machine-learning and prediction system that works within it. The nonintrusive assistant or apprentice provides viable default values for blank fields in a form, saving users up to 87 percent in keystroke effort and correctly predicting nearly 90 percent of the form's values. The system and predi... View full abstract»

  • AI-based planning for data analysis

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):21 - 27
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1143 KB)

    Over the next 10 years (1994-2004), NASA plans to launch several satellites for studying Earth's ecosystems. This Earth Observing System is expected to provide about a terabyte of data per day. The authors have worked with Earth scientists at NASA Ames to encode the selection and preparation of this data as an AI-based planning task. They extended a domain independent planner called Collage, to me... View full abstract»

  • Incorporating probabilistic reasoning in a reactive program debugging system

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):15 - 20
    Cited by:  Patents (4)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (718 KB)

    The authors are developing a system that takes a novel approach to the reactive analysis of assembly language programs that have abnormally terminated. The Dump Analysis and Consulting System (Daacs) integrates traditional compiler design, heuristic and logic-based techniques for program understanding, and probabilistic reasoning for diagnostic inference. Implemented as a belief network, the reaso... View full abstract»

  • Massively parallel support for case-based planning

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):8 - 14

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (804 KB)

    The Caper case-based planner uses the massive parallelism of the Connection Machine to quickly retrieve cases and plans from a large, unindexed memory. The system can retrieve cases and plans based on any feature of the target problem, including abstractions of target features. By controlling which features are part of the retrieval probe and their level of abstraction, a wide range of queries can... View full abstract»

  • Beyond the Fifth Generation: parallel AI research in Japan

    Many AI researchers, particularly in the USA, were surprised when Japanese AI scientist Hiroaki Kitano was chosen to receive the 1993 'Computers and Thought' award for his work in AI and parallelism. Their astonishment derived from the pervasive perception in the USA that the Japanese Fifth Generation Project, seemingly the major Japanese effort in AI and parallelism, was a failure. "How," they as... View full abstract»
