Example text

If two materials are used both may be represented. In subject classification subjects are analyzed into their component concepts. Compound subjects may be built up synthetically from elementary concepts. The concepts are arranged in groups called facets. Each concept is allocated a notational symbol derived from the facets which make up the concept. These concepts can then be combined or synthesised, using their notations, to form more complex subjects [5]. In order to subject-classify a document, an indexer examines a document, selects appropriate index terms and decides how they are related [3].

Narayanan in [19] (p. " EDIT provides a criterion for the testing of theories embodied in programs by the inspection of log files. There have been many arguments as to whether AI is, or is not, a science 6We do not make any strong claims here as to the relationship between programs and theories. However, this issue is discussed in [17], [lS],-end [3]. 36 (see [21J, [22]). Schank in [23J brings up the question as to whether AI is a technology of applications or a science. He points out that researchers have taken two directions, the scientists interested in working on problems like the brain or more neat logic problems, and the applications people working on building real practical systems.
