    A natural intelligence is not an isolated one; on the contrary, it is highly related with other natural intelligences. Consequently, an artificial intelligence could be conceived as non-isolated and “socially” related to others. In this context the author: defines the basic concepts to be employed; reviews the “social” relations and influences existing between natural intel... View full abstract»

    Often a user that solves a problem with the support of a system (knowledge-based system, software, etc.), must intervene to overcome the limited capabilities of the system. We aim to introduce a type of intelligent assistant system (IAS) between the user and the system. The IAS will acquire the knowledge that permits the user to solve problems and will after use it for solving similar problems to ... View full abstract»

  • Knowledge acquisition or requirements analysis?

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):63 - 68
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (448 KB)

    There are many parallels which can be drawn between the processes of requirements analysis and knowledge acquisition: both are communication-intensive, both involve studying procedures and rationalising the findings for use within a computer-based system, and so on. Practitioners in both spheres have recognised that these similarities exist. This paper discusses the techniques used in requirements... View full abstract»

  • From conventional KBS to cooperative KBS: control model

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):12 - 17
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (524 KB)

    The idea of integrating interaction and cooperation in the development of knowledge based systems (KBS) has grown rapidly during the last few years. The specificity of cooperative KBS in comparison with conventional KBS lies in the fact that they integrate the features of “interaction” and “cooperation”. The authors' approach focuses essentially on the “cooperation&rd... View full abstract»

    Since the first studies on language, argumentation has been considered, with very few exceptions, as a phenomenon which had to be accounted for only after the meaning of the sentences under consideration had been “extracted”. Formal logic is among the best known tools generally used to “extract” meaning from sentences. As a confirmation of a very ancient analogy between mea... View full abstract»

    Qualitativeness of software is one of major problems for establishing its scientific measurement environment in which engineers can measure their products objectively and in an engineering way. To deal with the qualitativeness, automated tools are essential that integrate systems' expertise represented in the forms of software components. Therefore, after introducing our on-going researches to bui... View full abstract»

    The paper presents a non-inductive, incremental technique for learning from examples derived within the context of the probabilistic variable Precision Rough Sets model. The technique involves the classification of the domain of interest into a relatively small number of categories followed by computation of all, or some, minimal rules with probabilities by using the concept of a decision matrix View full abstract»

    The design of computer systems has historically been focused on determining the needs of users and packaging the needs into applications. It is generally assumed that the computer system configuration and system software will deliver acceptable performance levels. Issues related to system performance and capacity have received insufficient attention even though its importance has been recognised. ... View full abstract»

  • Diagnosis based on incomplete causal model

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):102 - 107
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (300 KB)

    A mechanism for diagnosis of multiple faults in a system has been implemented. The domain knowledge is represented at the deep level by a causal network and at a shallow level by rules. Two forms of incompleteness are accommodated in the model: nonverifiability of initial causes and incompleteness in the relations in the causal network. The diagnostic process is non-monotonic and may admit multipl... View full abstract»

    The authors introduce an expert system, called AILAN, which is an intelligent diagnostic system for local area networks (LAN). This system is unique in that it entirely relies only on data acquired from the broadcast communication channel of the LAN. No status reporting is required from any component on the network. Header fields of data frames, handshaking methods, error control, flow control and... View full abstract»

  • Systolic array implementation for fuzzy evidential reasoning systems

    This paper suggests a systolic array implementation of fuzzy expert systems based on a fuzzy evidential reasoning methodology. Evidential reasoning systems are compute-bound in general, and fuzzy systems match a larger number of rules than simple symbolic reasoning systems. The fuzzy evidential system proposed, which is a combination of both, needs much more computation than either of these two in... View full abstract»

    Knowledge based decision support systems (KBDSSs) have been proposed as tools for aiding complex decision making, such as production scheduling, financial planning and inventory control. To construct KBDSSs efficiently, existing investments in software systems in the organisation need to be re-engineered, so that KBDSSs can use the data and knowledge which exists in those software systems.

    In previous work (see Proc. AADEBUG 93, Springer-Verlag, 1993) we developed a generalised query minimisation based on minimum entropy technique for diagnosing incorrect answers in the context of program debugging. This approach is adapted from model-based diagnosis. In this paper the query minimisation has been explored further to source program debugging and to program diagnosis with missing answ...
