Abstract : As part of a series in artificial intelligence experiments, four different computer programs for concept learning were tested on five problems of varying complexity. The amount of information which a program could store while solving the problem was varied independently. Program performance could be described as a function of the location of a given study in an abstract space defined by problem complexity and the amount of memory available. The results were discussed in terms of previous work on concept learning and for their implications in the general fields of artificial intelligence and the psychology of human learning. (Author)
