Catching Knowledge in Neural Nets
by C.C. Jorgensen and C. Matheus

The imitation of biological processes as a basis for AI
computation has a long history marked by periods of feverish
activity, fading interest, and resurrection. A flurry of clever
software and hardware developments has sparked a reevaluation in
the AI community as some amazing 'mind-machine' fusions pull
neural networks away from the future and into focus today.

Intelligence and the Computer:
The Central Role of Representation
by Oscar Firschein and Martin Fischler

Can intelligence be defined as the ability to create and
manipulate descriptions? Will expert systems technology ever
reach the point where machines replace humans in decision-making
tasks? Here we take a look at the central role played by the way
knowledge is encoded.

Understanding Frame Languages, Part II
Implementing PFL
by Tim Finin

Last month we introduced the general, underlying concepts behind
frame-based representation languages. This month let's focus on
a functional description of PFL and show portions of the Common
LISP code that actually implements it.

Knowledge Engineering in Practice
by Walter G. Rolandi

There is some confusion surrounding the actual application of
knowledge engineering within a defined business context. Applied
Behavior Analysis is one methodology within this emerging field
of software development that is quite interesting when compared
to traditional systems analysis.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
