1. <communications> Amplitude Modulation.
2. <artificial intelligence> A program by Doug Lenat to discover concepts
in elementary mathematics. AM was written in 1976 in Interlisp. From 100
fundamental concepts and about 250 heuristics it discovered several important
mathematical concepts including subsets, disjoint sets, sets with the same
number of elements, and numbers. It worked by filling slots in frames
maintaining an agenda of resource-limited prioritised tasks.
AM's successor was Eurisko.
