Hierarchies in Pattern Recognition


Particular attention is given to processes involving pattern recognition, learning, planning ahead, and the use of analogies or?models!. Second, we can often find simple machines which in certain situations do exhibit performances which would be called intelligent If done by a man. In attempting to design intelligent machines we are, in effect, concerned with the problems of "creativity". Usually the problem is not so much to find the basic structure (or the domain of things to try) as to find ways of reducing this structure to reasonable size.
