Problem: how to extend mappings when new information is found.

Inspired by Keane and Bradshaw's (1988) IAM model and incremental mapping in PHINEAS.

There's some discussion of what about incremental mapping should be seriel and what should be parallel, then about the role of pragmatic constraints. [314]

"When I-SME is given every item in the base and target at the same time, its results are identical to those of SME."

Major features: [315]

Two filters Example 1: giving the agent a few facts at a time, and watch how the mapping changes. Models evidence gathered by Keane (in press)

Example 2: MARS. comparing a worked example and a problem to be solved. [317]
