The 14th Machine Intelligence workshop has special significance since it commenced on Donald Michie's 70th birthday (11th November, 1993). Michie has had a distinguished scientific career of the highest order. During the Second World War he worked on machine-oriented cryptography at Bletchley Park, where his friends and associates included I.J. Good and Alan Turing. As is well known, Turing not only laid the theoretical grounds for modern digital computing but was also one of the most influential forefathers of research into Machine Intelligence. Turing's discussions with Donald Michie and Jack Good concerning the possibility of Machine Intelligence inspired Michie's later involvement in the subject. After the war, Michie trained as a geneticist and during the 1950's carried out award-winning work that led to today's medical and agricultural uses of intra-uterine embryo transfer. In the early 1960's Michie founded the first University department and teaching course in Machine Intelligence. Its lineal successor, the Department of Artificial Intelligence, is still the strongest in this area within the UK. At Edinburgh Michie headed the team that built, programmed and demonstrated the world's first non-trivial assembly robot. Michie has also made substantial contributions to graph search and statistically-based machine learning. Donald Michie has been Editor-in-chief of the Machine Intelligence series since the 1960's. The series contains many of the classic papers of the Artificial Intelligence literature. To mark the practical orientation of Michie's scientific contributions, the theme of this volume is ``Applied Machine Intelligence''. Many of the papers reflect Donald Michie's continuing interests in Machine Learning, Biology, Robotics and Control. August 1994 Stephen Muggleton
The Machine Intelligence 14 workshop was generously supported by the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation under an agreement concluded in 1991 between the Turing Institute, UK and the Japan Society for Artificial Intelligence, Tokyo. The Foundation provided funding, covering Workshops 13 and 14, to defray travel and attendance costs for six Japanese and six British scientists nominated by the respective parties. The Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation has recently announced its intention to extend its support to Workshop 15, which will be held in July 1995 at St. Catherine's College Oxford. Hitachi kindly provided support and facilities by allowing the Machine Intelligence 14 workshop to be held at its spacious Advanced Research Laboratory near Tokyo. Like its predecessor, Machine Intelligence 13, this volume reflects the vigour with which the subject is being advanced in Japan. Thanks are also due to the Oxford University Computing Laboratory for kindly allowing use of printing and document preparation facilities in the production of this volume.
