On the completion of each test another stub is replaced with a real module. Also regression testing may be conducted where all, or some, of the previous tests are rerun to ensure that new errors have not been introduced. 4 THE SCIENCE OF AI Now that we have described our position on a methodology for developing good algorithms we shall move on to the problem of testing them. There needs to be some technique for testing if the algorithm works. Today, the 35 test of AI theories is one where the programs, embodying those theories6 , are implemented, and demonstrated to work, over a few selected examples.

W entries will show up why P did not work and will indicate what components of P need to be updated. In the case of natural language question answering W entries might show up the fact that certain types of question are not being answered very well, or at all. Therefore, W entries would indicate how P needs to be augmented in principle to solve a recurring pattern of failure. W entries 33 could be analysed for such recurring patterns. In effect, what is happening here is that P is "learning" by being investigated and augmented in the same way as a mother might teach her child noticing the child's failure to complete certain tasks 5 • The success of P is measured by the number and type of answers P can give, and the number of answers P gets correct.
