The keynote audio system have been Professor David Chin, collage of Hawaii, and Professor Derek Partridge, collage of Exeter, and the themes incorporated laptop studying, AI instruments and techniques, specialist platforms, speech, imaginative and prescient, usual language, reasoning with doubtful details, and clarification. The sponsors of the convention have been electronic apparatus Co (Galway) and the economic improvement Board for Northern Ireland.

Thus, for example, systems such as Oracle require the use of SQL for query expression, while microcomputer-based products, such as dBase, have inbuilt browsers for data examination. Similarly, a newer generation of products have integrated the notion of windowing to achieve a visually aesthetic system interface - this is particularly true of workstations. While there may exist historic reasons for this development pattern (generally, mainframes and minicomputers did not possess sufficient power to handle sophisticated front-end processing), we do not believe that this situation need necessarily continue.

However, with EDIT, E is involved in both identification and testing and we argue that this is the way to go about testing if P is to meet the problem head on. EDIT is currently being used in the development of AI software which answers natural language questions about computer operating systems. An initial computer program was developed called OSCON (see [33], [6], [34], and [35]) which answers simple English questions about computer operating systems. To enhance this research it was decided that an experiment should be conducted to discover the types of queries that people actually ask.
