Notes:
Conference Paper; in Proceedings of the 1961 National Conference of the Association for Computing Machinery (1961); Forgetting was the most unexpected results of my early EPAM experiments. There were no "axioms" (i.e. modeling assumptions ) made about forgetting, yet EPAM forgot during its learning. And the amount of forgetting was in line with evidence from psychological experiments in the literature. A Triumph! EAF
