CONTRANS is a computer simulation of a physiologically-oriented reasoning and problem-solving model. The model employs several layers of semi-random nets to recognize and associate sensory patterns, a screen-like memory and representation medium, and several motor functions enabling the nets to control scanning of the memory. Meaningful assemblies of data are created and manipulated by the model which then utilizes them to modify its own ability to handle future data. Data and heuristic… CONTINUE READING
