This e-book offers very important effects from the ESPRIT undertaking 393 "Construction and Interrogation of data Bases utilizing typical Language textual content and pictures" (ACORD). The venture concerned greater than fifty humans overfive years, and integrated commercial and educational companions from 3 international locations. the most results of the venture is a hugely refined human-machine interface permitting the development and interrogation of a standard wisdom base in English, French, and German, utilizing either usual language and pictures. bankruptcy 1 provides an outline of the undertaking.
