    Describes the design and development of a graphical expert system for the identification of microfossils. The main components of the system are a graphical expert system shell and a set of knowledge bases. The process of knowledge elicitation is highly structured, and partly automated for maximum efficiency. The elicited knowledge for microfossils is stored in specially designed metafiles which ar...

  • Using qualitative modelling for designing control architectures

    Publication Year: 1990
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (36 KB)

    Summary form only given. The paper describes a qualitative modelling toolbox for designing and developing application independent architectures. The domain chosen to demonstrate the versatility of the work is an advanced robotics workcell that is part of a knowledge-based automation laboratory. Developed out of a remote monitoring application, the toolbox uses object-oriented software and encapsul... View full abstract»

    The Better Explanations for Expert Systems project is currently investigating methods for providing improved interaction facilities for KBSs. The necessary flexibility and adaptability to the individual requires an interface which accepts natural language input and maintains a model of the individual (including the individual's current state of knowledge), in order to generate tailored textual res...

  • Rule-based generation of user interfaces: a practical application of HCl usability principles

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):7/1 - 7/6
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (308 KB)

    Describes an application for which user interface support is required, the detailed requirements for which are unknown to the software developers. To optimise usability of dynamically configured dialogue elements a small number of rules embodying human factors principles was formulated to constrain the construction of these elements. This exercise has not only led to substantial enhancement of the... View full abstract»

  • AI technologies for user interfaces: knowledge-based front-ends

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):2/1 - 2/3
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (152 KB)

    Addresses a project in which AI technologies are applied to the development of knowledge-based front ends for existing engineering software. The FOCUS project aims to develop generic toolkits which will assist developers of knowledge-based front ends (KBFEs) in different industrial environments in the construction of customized end-user applications using existing software packages and libraries View full abstract»

  • Intelligent aids to design: some user interface issues

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):3/1 - 3/3
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (144 KB)

    Discusses user interface design for intelligent systems intended to support the engineering design community. Types of intelligent design aids are briefly described and attention is given to the importance of identifying the nature of work undertaken at different stages in the design cycle and matching interaction styles to this work. The development of an expert system to advise on manufacturing ... View full abstract»

  • Theoretical, empirical and computational approaches to explanation dialogues

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):4/1 - 4/4
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (292 KB)

    Presents two strands of research; first an empirical study and analysis of natural dialogues between experts, novices and partial experts and second, a study concerned with the acceptability of explanations from a user viewpoint and the style of explanation provision by experts. From the analysis of the natural dialogues between experts, novices and partial experts a theory of explanation dialogue... View full abstract»
