|Adaptive Resonance Theory
||A two-layer neural net architecture in which information
reverberates back and forth between the layers.
||A multilayer feedforward neural net architecture which uses
the supervised mode of learning. This is the most widely used type of
||A layer of processing elements between a neural network's
input layer and its output layer.
||A layer of processing elements that receives the input to
a neural net.
||A neural net architecture whose processing elements compete
with each other for the "right" to respond to an input pattern.
||A system modeled after the neurons (nerve cells) in a biological
nervous system. A neural network is designed as an interconnected system
of processing elements, each with a limited number of inputs and outputs.
Rather than being programmed, these systems learn to recognize patterns.
||The layer of processing elements which produce a neural

||In a forward-chaining production system, the right-hand
side of a rule consisting of a secquence of actions.
||A control mechanism the handles a priority queue of tasks.
||The statement of conditions necessary for coming to a conclusion.
In a production system, this is the left-hand side of the rule.
||A property associated with an object.
||A control method used to search backwards for solutions.
||A process used to find the solution by searching backwards
from the solution towards the initial conditions thus verifying the specified
|Backus-Naur Form (BNF)
||A formal language used to define context-free grammars where
a formal grammer consists of a set of rules with a left and right side
separated by the symbol '::='. The left hand side is a nonterminal symbol
and the right-hand side is a sequence of nonterminal symbols.
||A statement that is not known or assumed to be true.
||The process of assigning a variable a value.
||A variable that has been assigned a value in the binding
||The left side of a rule that can be expressed as a pattern
which can be matched against facts.
||The process for choosing the next action when there are
many alternatives steps.
||The global database used in a production system.
||A procedure that is executed whenever a particular predicate
about a database becomes true.
||Do the steps specified in a procedure or the actions in
||A process used to find the solution by starting with an
assumption and working toward a final goal.
||A formal method of representing information about a single
idea or concept in terms of properties where the information is stored
||The solution that the program is trying to reach.
||Same as backward chaining.
||A change to a system that alters it's future performance
and is usually associated with changes to rules.
||Specifies the antecedents that must be satisfied if the
rule on the right-side is to be executed.
||A series of recursively defined objects.
||Comparing the left side with data values in memory to find
the ways in which rules can be satisfied.
||An entity in a programming system that is used to represent
a piece of information or knowledge.
||Set of instructions for performing a task.
||Another name for rules.
||The features and characteristics of an object and the values
are called attributes.
||A series of actions taken in the specified sequence when
a rule is fired.
||Represents the relationship between objects and actions.
||Same as Frame.
||Another name for context or goal.
||A term that can assume any value from a set of values.
