Item description for Hierarchically Intelligent Machines by George N. Saridis, Carol Gilligan, Leigh Beisch, Janet B. Pascal, John O'Brien, Sara Stridsberg & Ana Planella...
This book presents the result of 30 years' work on the original material related to "thinking machines", a subject initiated by the author and his colleagues. It is based on the ability of the computer to represent the hierarchical procedure of task conception and execution found in human beings. It is arranged in three levels representing the structure of organizational systems: organization, coordination and execution. Hierarchically Intelligent Machines can serve as a guide to modern intelligent robots.
