The query posed to the system will be "Is PO open Today?" What you
will see when you start the demo will be three fields. On the right
will be a network diagram of the KB. This diagram will not change
throughout the simulation and is there for reference purposes. The
diagram on the left shows the actual activation of SHRUTI running in
the Rochester Connectionist Simulater (RCS), and this diagram changes
each frame. Note that the size of the square for each node/cell is
proportional to the amount of activation it has. The cells are
labelled as follows: +c and -c for positive and negative collectors,
respectively, e for enabler, ** for contradiction nodes, and arguments
are simply labelled X for single-argument predicates and X and Y for
two-argument-predicates. Note that there is not necessarily any
correspondance between arguments labelled "X" across predicates,
unless a link appears explicitly in the network diagram on the right.
