Abstract: "This paper is an overview of research on the design and application of a Self-Organizing Pattern Retrieval System. This system is a non-traditional form of database for several reasons: 1. The objects (patterns) stored in the database are complex data structures such as graphs, or matrices as opposed to relations, sets, lists or frames. 2. The system attempts to optimize its internal structure for retrieval efficiency by taking advantage of classificatory information (common patterns) it discovers about the patterns in the database. 3. The system is representation-independent, allowing the user to use whatever representation scheme he desires as long as he provides a small set of i/o routines and comparison functions for the representation.
