'This Memorandum is an interim report on the development of problem-solving computer programs. Several of the organizational problems in constructing a problem-solving program and applying it to actual problems are discussed and analyzed in an effort to detect the sources of the information contained in the program. The study is of interest to programmers & engineers concerned with advanced concepts of machine use and machine organization, and will eventually lead to construction of very sophisticated applied programs, patterned on the game-playing and theorem proving type programs common today. A presentation based on this study was made at the Conference on Self-Organizing Systems, chicago illinois, May 1962, sponsored by the Information Systems Branch of the Office of Naval Research and the Armour Research Foundation of the Illinois Institute of Technology' (from the Preface) Includes the Preface, A Summary, Introduction, Storing Dynamic Structures, Organizing Large Processes, Using the Results of Subgoals -- solution by remote control; solution by communication; solution by interpretaion; solution by understanding; Accessing Inhomogeneous Collections of Data, Preserving Past History, Conclusion, References and bibliography.

Key early compendium of articles by authorities in the field of automata, intelligent machines, artificial intelligence AI and computing, robots, heuristics, neural networks, etc. The papers have been divided into three groups. The first group consists of papers dealing with automata having a finite number of possible internal states [i.e, the brain and all actual physical machines] ... The second group of papers deals with the theory of Turing machines and related questions, that is to say, with automata having an unlimited number of possible states ... The third section of the book contains papers relating more directly to the synthesis of automata which will simulate in some sense the operation of a living organism' (pp. vi-viii).

Included are papers by John von Neumann ('Probabilistic logics and the synthesis of reliable organisms from unreliable parts'), Marvin Minsky ('Some universal elements for finite automata), John McCarthy ('The inversion of functions defined by Turing machines'), and Claude E. Shannon ('A universal Turing machine with two internal states' and 'Computability by probabilistic machines', with K. de Leeuw, E. F. Moore, and N. Shapiro). OOC 893.

Contents -- FINITE AUTOMATA - Representation of Events in Nerve Nets and Finite Automata (Kleene); Probabilistic Logics & the Synthesis of Reliable Organisms from Unreliable Components (von Neumann); Some Uneconomical Robots (Culbertson); Some Universal Elements for Finite Automata (Minsky); Gedanken-Experiments on Sequential Machines (Moore);

TURING MACHINES -- A Universal Turing Machine with Two Intenal States (CE Shannon); A Note on Universal Turing Machines (Davis); The Inversion Functions Defined by Turing Machines (McCarthy); Computabillity of Probabilistic Machines (de Leeuw, Moore, Shannon & Shapiro);
