Abstract: We apply techniques from the field of machine learning/ artificial intelligence to the problem of inducing meaningful structure from astronomical data. \cobweb//95 is a concept formation system that accepts objects incrementally and organizes them into a classification tree. The system has been successfully applied to cluster sky objects which were derived from the SKICAT data cataloging/analysis system.
