I have specified in Chap. 11 the different concepts as defined by Zakaria 1994) in his thesis which characterize sequence types. However, this does not help in identifying what concept should be tried when given an IQ test sequence. For this it is required to identify features of sequences and associate them with the range of generating concepts. The problem is that the features assigned can apply to more than one concept. This issue can be readdressed as a form of pattern recognition in which the pattern of features will identify the most likely concept to apply to a particular sequence.
