Abstract : The results of our work on a biologically motivated model of reflexive reasoning were used to implement a large scale system for performing rapid reasoning using very large knowledge bases. The system - SHRUTI- cM-5 runs on a 32 node CM-5, and has been tested on a large randomly generated knowledge base contalning over 500,000 items and WordNet, a real-world lexical database. The system's response time is fast enough to support retrieval and inferencing for real-time applications such as speech understanding. We have also made some progress in addressing the catastrophic interference problem.
