THNET: THinkNet connectionist software
This directory contains the THNET (THinkNet) connectionist software
package, including ACME, ARCS, and ECHO. It is a set of Common Lisp
programs for modeling high-level cognitive operations using
connectionist networks. Its major components are:
1. common modules for running and displaying networks;
2. ACME (Analogical Constraint Mapping Engine), a program
that creates networks for analogical mapping;
3. ECHO (Explanatory Coherence Model), a program that creates networks
for evaluating explanatory hypotheses; and
4. ARCS (Analogical Retrieval by Constraint Satisfaction), a program
to model analogical retrieval.
