Notes:
  • magazineArticle (1959/7); p. 7; An effort is made to improve the performance of the learning machine described in Part I, and the over-all effect of various changes is considered. Comparative runs by machines without the scoring mechanism indicate that the grading of individual instructions can aid in the learning process. A related study is made in which automatic debugging of programs is taken as a special case of machine search. The ability to partition problems and to deal with parts in order of difficulty proves helpful.
