Abstract : During this contract period, we introduced new representation schemes called event shape diagrams for events and actions; developed mechanisms for explanatory schema acquisition, a process which allows a program to learn new plans and scripts (i.e., action sequences) by reading articles or stories based on the plans or scripts; completed work on computer programs which can understand complex noun phrases (such as water pump pulley adjustment screw thread damage report summary); made substantial progress toward identifying and cataloging cognitive universals.
