ion planning It may be possible to take a coarser view of the problem space, as though we could back off and see the general features while omitting the details. This is one form of planning (a different form than embodied in Heuristic DENDRAL, to be described shortly). We will call it abstraction to keep the terminology clear. In the terms of our paradigm of problem solving, abstraction can be achieved by defining a new set of problem-state descriptions, based on a language that is an… Expand
The heuristic of George Polya and its relation to artificial intelligence
Abstract : Polya's fundamental work in heuristic is well known and well regarded in artificial intelligence. However, no one has built seriously on his work, e. g., by constructing programs that makeExpand
Artificial intelligence and automation in computer aided synthesis planning
TLDR
The need for an automated synthesis platform which chemists can use to augment their workflows and what it entails is highlighted, blurring the distinction between fields in the pursuit of artificial intelligence and automated platforms that can be integrated into chemical workflows. Expand
A Customized Logic Paradigm for Reasoning about Models
TLDR
The main goal of the work described here was to design and implement a knowledge representation framework that allows a computer program to reason about physical systems and candidate models in such a way as to find the right model at the right abstraction level as quickly as possible. Expand
Defining Artificial Intelligence 1.1 Background
  • 2005
Although most scientific disciplines, such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, and biology, are well defined, the field of artificial intelligence (AI) remains enigmatic. Indeed, Hofstadter (1985, p.Expand
AI Meets Chemistry
TLDR
It is argued that chemistry should be the next grand challenge for Artificial Intelligence, and it is shown that searching in chemistry problems poses significant additional challenges that will have to be addressed. Expand
Machine Discovery of Chemical Reaction Pathways
TLDR
A system that forms confirmed, explanatory theories about dynamic processes by conjecturing unseen entities in a justified manner is presented, and several new research questions in automated discovery are proposed, which were motivated by the practical problems confronted. Expand
A Synthon Approach to Artificial Chemistry
TLDR
In this article the theory and algorithms underlying the coevolutionary model are explained, and two illustrative examples show that one needs to be careful in making general claims concerning the structure of chemical reaction networks. Expand
Constraint - directed search in knowledge - based planning environments
TLDR
This thesis develops a theory of Constraint-Directed Search for Planning Problems (CDSPs), a class of real-world problems for which neither classical AI planning nor constraint satisfaction formalisms are adequate. Expand
An Inductive Logic Programming Framework to Learn a Concept from Ambiguous Examples
TLDR
This work formally study the cases where descriptions of objects are ambiguous, using an Inductive Logic Programming framework close to characteristic induction from interpretations, and proposes a method in which a set of hypothetical examples is explicitly calculated for each object prior to learning. Expand
Elements for a History of Artificial Intelligence
Artificial intelligence (AI) is a young scientific field, which like other domains of information processing sciences, was born in the middle of the XXth century, with the arrival of the firstExpand

Applications of Artificial Intelligence for Chemical Inference. Part XIX. Computer Generation of Ion Structures
TLDR
An interactive computer program which can be used to study questions of plausible ion structures is discussed, primarily with the example of triethylamine, an apparently simple compound whose behavior is examined in detail with the aid of the program because of the complexity of its fragmentation.

Version spaces: an approach to concept learning.
Abstract : A method is presented for learning general descriptions of concepts from a sequence of positive and negative training instances. This method involves examining a predetermined space orExpand

A Machine-Oriented Logic Based on the Resolution Principle
TLDR
The paper concludes with a discussion of several principles which are applicable to the design of efficient proof-procedures employing resolution as the basle logical process. Expand
Version Spaces: A Candidate Elimination Approach to Rule Learning
TLDR
An approach to this problem is presented which is guaranteed to find, without backtracing, all rule versions consistent with a set of positive and negative training instances. Expand

An algorithm for the construction of the graphs of organic molecules
TLDR
This algorithm, which is part of a program for the automated analysis of organic compounds, constructs all of the non-isomorphic, connected multi- graphs based on a given degree sequence of nodes and which arise from a relatively small ''catalog'' of certain canonical graphs. Expand
Production Systems: Models of Control Structures
TLDR
The chapter presents a theory of the control structure of human information processing, a scheme for specifying an information processing system that consists of a set of productions, each production consisting of a condition and an action. Expand
