And: CMU-CS-TR-87-102, 1987. CMU CS Dept. This provides the wrapper around spam - get the knowledge faster, and analyze the results that come out. Knowledge is derived from schema and compiled directly into ops5 rules. The testing was to derive a new set of schema for housing tracts in addition to the older airport descriptions. BibRef
