We computer scientists face at least two problems in promoting the use of computerized data-base systems: 1) some important data might be missing; 2) there might be errors in the data. Both of these problems can be quite serious. If they cannot be solved, it will be quite hard to convince potential users that computerized information systems are useful.
We describe an expert system for resource allocation in a particular military domain. The system incorporates variants of several important techniques of artificial intelligence and makes the first use of the Merit system for question selection. This technique enables the system to direct the acquisition of information by finding questions with a high ratio… (More)
This paper presents an application of a connec-tionist control-learning system designed for use on an autonomous mini-robot. This system was formerly shown to form useful two-dimensional mappings rapidly when applied to backing a car with a single trailer. In the current paper the learning system is extended to three dimensions and applied to a similar but… (More)
This paper presents the application of a connection-ist control-learning system to an autonomous mini-robot. The system's design is severely constrained by the computing power and memory available on board the mini-robot and the on-board training time is greatly limited by the short life of the battery. The system is capable of rapid unsupervised learning… (More)
