Toward Discovery Support Systems: A Replication, Re-Examination, and Extension of Swanson's Work on Literature-Based Discovery of a Connection between Raynaud's and Fish Oil
Don R. Swanson has undertaken a program of research to use the published medical literature as a source of discoveries. We have attempted to replicate his discovery of a connection between Raynaud's…
Applications of Artificial Intelligence for Organic Chemistry: The DENDRAL Project
In the terms of the paradigm of problem solving, abstraction can be achieved by defining a new set of problem-state descriptions, based on a language that is an abstrac34 APPLICATIONS of ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE for organic chemistry fororganic chemistry, in the sense that one problem- state description in the abstraction language corresponds to many problem-State descriptions in the basic language.
Literature-Based Discovery by Lexical Statistics
We report experiments that use lexical statistics, such as word frequency counts, to discover hidden connections in the medical literature. Hidden connections are those that are unlikely to be found…

Literature-based discovery on the World Wide Web
This work suggests that literature-based discovery can be fruitful in areas other than medicine, and that it can support individuals seeking to draw together ideas from various areas of inquiry, even if such connections have been previously made by others.
DENDRAL: A Case Study of the First Expert System for Scientific Hypothesis Formation
Deterministic Autonomous Systems
This article argues that autonomy, not problem-solving prowess, is the key property that defines the intuitive notion of "intelligent creature" and establishes criteria for the types of goals that characterize autonomy.
Empirical Studies of the Genetic Algorithm with Noncoding Segments
The hypotheses on noncoding segments are discussed, the experiments described, and the results of the experiments are described: testing the program on problems from previous related studies, and testing new hypotheses on the effect of nonc coding segments.
A Comparison of the Fixed and Floating Building Block Representation in the Genetic Algorithm
The results show that there is a significant difference in how GAs solve a problem in the fixed and floating representations, and genetic algorithms are able to maintain a more diverse population with the floating representation.
