review of the project. This was one of the first large-scale expert systems.
|242 ;;Quote: the DENDRAL expert system had a quite limited impact on organic chemistry; it was not useful for large difficult problems|
|242+;;Quote: DENDRAL's successors generated possible solutions to a problem; they generated too many candidates for difficult problems, while simple problems could be done by hand|
|251 ;;Quote: early AI work did not appreciate the sheer amount and variety of specialized knowledge underlying intelligent behavior|
|251+;;Quote: general AI methods failed when the specialized knowledge needed for real-world problems swamped their heuristic methods and data encodings
