Abstract : This report describes recent progress in the development of PRET, a computer program that automates the process of system identification. Given hypotheses, observations, and specifications, PRET constructs an ordinary differential equation model of a target system with no other inputs or intervention from its user. The core of the program is a set of traditional system identification (SID) methods. A layer of artificial intelligence (AI) techniques built around this core automates the high-level stages of the identification process that are normally performed by a human expert.
