[edit] Summary


Weather forecast report generator (template-based) "Interactive Forecast Preparation System". Early weather report generation still on the point of being deployed commercially. Also led on to the ICWF system (now incorporated?) .IFPS is in the template-based category, much of it written in Fortran. Does not claim an AI-basis, but must do some kind of text planning/organisation.
