A Rational Reconstruction of ANALOGY
The idea of this project is to reconstruct Evans ANALGOY program (1968) that solved
geometric-analogy problems. The report reviews the work of Evans on geometric analogies and
explains the functionality, the proposed design and development for the new system. The report contains the timeline, the original documentation for the project, and the source code for the new system as well.
Sometimes humans solve problems by reasoning by analogy (A is to B as C is to ?). The aim of this project is to rationally reconstruct the ANALOGY program, built in the early 1960s by Evans, which solved geometric-analogy problems.
