Abstract : In the original proposal the investigators had outlined a long term program for conducting research in knowledge based systems. In particular they proposed to study issues in diagnostic reasoning and in knowledge-directed information retrieval. During the first year most of the progress came in the area of diagnostic reasoning and in the conceptual foundations of knowledge-based systems in general. The investigators also developed an approach to a new type of task: design of mechanical parts. This report summarizes specific progress made in these areas. (Author)
