Associative Networks- Representation and Use of Knowledge by Computers
This book provides good coverage of semantic networks and related systems for representing knowledge and should be commended for the editor's efforts in putting together a wellorganized book. Expand
Studies in machine cognition using the game of poker
A progress report is presented of on-going research efforts concerning human decision making under uncertainty and risk and human problem solving and learning processes on the one hand, and machineExpand
Distributed Approach to Optimized Control of Street Traffic Signals
The paper describes our long‐term activity aimed at the control of traffic signals by a network of distributed processors situated at street intersections. Every processor runs an identical expertExpand
Multiagent coordination and cooperation in a distributed dynamic environment with limited resources
A novel method of negotiation allows agents to bid for tasks based upon the agents' capabilities and a technique called ‘hierarchical iterative conflict resolution’ has been implemented to resolve resource conflicts. Expand
Distributed artificial intelligence approach to air traffic control
The idea of distributed planning and problem solving as a reliable and effective methodology for air traffic control is introduced. Some basic concepts and terminology of distributed planning areExpand

This monograph gives a systematic overview of the theory of strategies, a new area of enquiry developed over the past two decades by the author and his team, aimed at researchers, teachers and students in computer science, management science and certain areas of engineering. Expand
Kinship structures revisited
The present work adds new dimensions of power and flexibility to an earlier formulation of a programming system that could generate and query kinship structures. The use of the associative memory,Expand
Automatic rule discovery for field work in anthropology

  • 1 August 1992
Two older computer programs are first described which can receive data, possibly incomplete and redundant, representing kinship relations among named individuals, and establish a knowledge base in the form of a directed graph, which the user can query in a variety of ways. Expand
An excursion into social and cultural anthropology by artificial intelligence — An automated discovery system to identify rules of inheritance, succession, marriage, injunction against incest, and
Abstract This note deals with the problem of discovering rules that govern social interactions and relations in preliteral societies. Two older computer programs are first described that can receiveExpand
A Family of Similarity Measures Between Two Strings
A class of similarity measures for quantitatively comparing two strings, that is, two linearly ordered sets of elements, is presented and one can select the measure most adequate for one's needs on the basis of a few characteristic examples of strings compared and by considering the specific requirements of the application at hand.
