Workshop on Information and Representation Report.
Partee, Barbara H., Ed.; And Others
The proceedings of a workshop on the study of information, computation, and cognition, a field of interdisciplinary research that includes communication research in artificial intelligence, computer science, linguistics, logic, philosophy, and psychology, gives an overview of the status of funding support for the field and the concerns of researchers for the continuation of research opportunities. Recommendations concerning fund raising that emerged from the workshop are presented, and papers providing background information are included. These papers treat the following subjects: interdisciplinary projects and topics; needs assessment; a description of the research community; an estimate of currently available resources; the history of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and System Development Foundation support; and the role of industrial research centers. Four expository papers are also included: "Language, Mind and Information" (John Perry); "A Presentation to the NSF Workshop on Information and Representation" (Jerry Fodor); "Research Goals in Information, Computation and Cognition" (Barbara Partee); and "A Presentation at NSF Workshop on Information and Representation" (Mitch Marcus).
