Abstract: "This report reviews the state of the art in systems that innovate. The review concentrates more on the techniques used in these systems rather than what the system actually did. This report reviews some of the important issues for DA systems that work in domains requiring non-routine and innovative approaches to problem solving. This part of the report covers issues such as analogy & metaphor, exploration & discovery and creativity. Readers who wish to get a broader sense of the techniques used in DA systems may refer to the following papers [Gross 86, Stefik 80, Tong 86a, Mostow 85, Nilsson 80, Sriram 86, Ullman & Dietterich 87, Tong 86b]."
