    The work presented is the continuation of an earlier work by the authors, wherein the grammar rules based on the concept of grammatical relations for parsing simple Hindi sentences have been given (D. K. Lobiyal, G. V. Singh, 1993). In that analysis, only the sentences with simple verb phrase have been considered. The authors extend the grammar to account for sentences with compound, conjunct or c... View full abstract»

  • A technique for knowledge modelling

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):30 - 35

    We present a systematic technique of knowledge modelling called the inferential modelling technique which aids knowledge engineers in constructing a conceptual model of a domain during the knowledge-based system development process. The technique is derived from a domain independent classification of knowledge types and inferences called the inferential model. The technique can be used in conjunct... 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»

  • Can AI accommodate imagistic expertise?

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):36 - 41

    After years of focussing almost exclusively on rather primitive symbolic forms of knowledge representation, AI has started a systematic attempt to design and implement a computational correlate to human diagrammatic representation and reasoning. However, a number of thinkers are on record as confidently claiming that such representation and reasoning is forever beyond a digital computer. Are such ... View full abstract»

  • Contextualized explanations

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):119 - 124

    The aim is to fill the gap between theory and practice in the production of explanations by a system. One reason of this gap arises from the fact that a problem is often solved thanks to a cooperation between the user and the system, and both participants in the cooperation need explanations. Explanations essentially depend on the context in which the user and the system interact. Such contextuali... View full abstract»

  • Graphical and formal knowledge specification with KARL

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (632 KB)

    The paper discusses an approach which allows the specification of a knowledge-based system (KBS) at several levels. The Knowledge Acquisition and Representation Language KARL combines a description of a KBS at the conceptual level supported by graphical modelling primitives with a description at a formal and executable level. Therefore, a KARL-specification can be used as a means for communication... View full abstract»

  • Intelligent process control: application of neural network to glass melting furnace control

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):255 - 260
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (512 KB)

    The authors propose a control scheme for a color TV glass-bulb melting process using neural network (NN). For modeling and synthesizing the input-output mapping of the process, the scheme has a hierarchically unified neural network (HUNN) architecture which integrates recurrent NN and feedforward NN. Both multilayer NNs are trained to predict the states and performance of the melting operations. T... View full abstract»

  • An efficient method of solving constraint satisfaction problems in IR spectrum interpreting

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):165 - 170
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (336 KB)

    This paper presents a simple constraint-based reasoning method used in an expert system which we have developed for infra-red (IR) spectrum interpretation where getting an initial solution is much more difficult than refining it. The most difficult constraints concerning that different variables cannot take on the same value (called constraint α) are considered after the other constraints (c... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (520 KB)

    We present a framework for machine learning that is based on, or more accurately, inspired from, concepts taken from the natural process of biological evolution. Currently, there exist many such evolutionary computational approaches to machine learning. The approach presented differs radically from these approaches; by taking a very abstract and general viewpoint to the process of evolutionary com... View full abstract»

  • Argumentation in lexicon and cognitive modelling

    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»

    We propose a knowledge-based framework of specification verification of real-time systems. In this framework, we present RT-FRORL as a formal requirements specification language which exploits knowledge representation techniques as an aid in the specification, analysis and development of KBSs for real-time systems. RT-FRORL uses a combination of resolution refutation, anomaly detection matrix, and... 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»

  • 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»

    Development of knowledge sharing, problem solving, and communication facilities is a key issue for the next generation knowledge systems for complex applications in distributed cooperative environments. The authors examine requirements of a multi-agent model for such distributed systems and propose the concept of distributed explanation-based learning (DEBL).

    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...
