ON-LINE INTERACTIVE DISPLAYS IN APPLICATION TO LINGUISTIC ANALYSIS AND INFORMATION PROCESSING AND RETRIEVAL.
SIMMONS, R.F.
AS COMPUTERS ARE USED FOR INCREASINGLY COMPLEX OPERATIONS SUCH AS RETRIEVING DOCUMENTS AND ANALYZING SENTENCES, IT BECOMES APPARENT THAT HUMAN DECISION-MAKING IS STILL AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF THE PROCESS. THE USE OF THE ON-LINE INTERACTIVE CAPABILITY OF TODAY'S THIRD-GENERATION COMPUTERS SUPPORTED BY TYPEWRITER AND DISPLAY SCOPE TERMINALS MAKES THE CONSTRUCTION OF COMPUTER-AIDED SYSTEMS FOR THESE COMPLEX TASKS AN ATTRACTIVE APPROACH. TWO SUCH SYSTEMS ARE DESCRIBED IN THE PAPER. ONE IS BOLD, A DOCUMENT RETRIEVAL SYSTEM THAT OFFERS THE USER AN ON-LINE BROWSING CAPABILITY AS WELL AS THE ABILITY TO RETRIEVE DOCUMENTS OR CONSTRUCT BIBLIOGRAPHIES USING COMPUTER- DRIVEN DISPLAY SCOPES AND TYPEWRITERS. THE OTHER IS A SENTENCE- ANALYSIS SYSTEM THAT COMPUTES DEPENDENCY ANALYSES, PHRASE STRUCTURE ANALYSIS AND KERNEL SETS FOR EACH SENTENCE IT IS GIVEN. THIS SYSTEM PRODUCES AND DISPLAYS MULTIPLE ANALYSES AND ALLOWS THE USER TO CORRECT THEM OR TO SELECT THOSE WHICH ARE SATISFACTORY. THE CONCLUSION IS THAT FOR SOME TIME TO COME COMPLEX INFORMATION PROCESSING SYSTEMS-PARTICULARLY THOSE CONCERNED WITH NATURAL LANGUAGES-WILL REMAIN AT THE LEVEL OF SEMIAUTOMATIC COMPUTER AIDS TO HUMAN INFORMATION PROCESSING. AS SUCH, THEIR USEFULNESS CAN BE MAXIMIZED BY OPTIMAL USE OF INTERACTIVE DISPLAY TECHNOLOGY. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE SYMPOSIUM ON MAN/MACHINE INTERACTION, (PARIS, FRANCE, OCTOBER 10-17, 1966).
