Computational Discovery of Communicable Knowledge: Symposium Report
Abstract. The Symposium on Computational Discovery of Communicable Knowledge was held from March 24 to 25, 2001, at Stanford University. Fifteen speakers reviewed recent advances in computational approaches to scientific discovery, focusing on their discovery tasks and the generated knowledge, rather than on the discovery algorithms themselves. Despite considerable variety in both tasks and methods, the talks were unified by a concern with the discovery of knowledge cast in formalisms used to communicate among scientists and engineers. Computational research on scientific discovery has a long history within both artificial intelligence and cognitive science. Early efforts focused on reconstructing episodes from the history of science, but the past decade has seen similar techniques produce a variety of new scientific discoveries, many of them leading to publications in the relevant scientific literatures. Work in this paradigm has emphasized formalisms used to communicate among ...
