Michie, Donald (ed.)
Five years ago, at the beginning of the fourth block of five years, the Department of Scientific & Industrial Research recognized this subject and the need to provide for it as part of its grant-aiding machinery by setting up a Computing Science Committee, of which I became the first chairman. He is now Professor Michie of the Department of Machine Intelligence and Perception at Edinburgh University, and his annual'Machine Intelligence Workshop' is increasingly becoming an international rather than a domestic event. This, the third volume of Machine Intelligence, published PREFACE with commendable speed after the conclusion of the'workshop', records many of the papers given on the occasion of its third meeting. This volume comprises the papers delivered at the third Annual Machine Intelligence Workshop held in Edinburgh, 11-16 September 1967.
