: THE TASK is to build a (sub)optimal recursive, binary-tree-like solver

: that will solve for output variables using minimal number of input

: varables. The algorithm is supposed to be built automatically, based

: upon the set of rules.

Building a smallest tree is an intractable problem unfortunately. But

it is possible to generate a smallish tree. Take a look at decision

trees, decision tree learning, and inductive learning (all from AI).

I don't know any references on the web, but I'm sure there are some.

Almost every AI book should contain a chapter on this too.
