    The upcoming high-performance network promises to do much more than merely load our bookmarked Web pages faster. It will enable new services that will fundamentally simplify our interactions with computers and people. Its pricing and performance will allow us to forget its presence as it takes its place as just another home utility, such as gas and electricity. As currency allowed the explosive sp...

  • Robots playing soccer? RoboCup poses a new set of AI research challenges

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):5 - 9
    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (136 KB)

    The paper discusses the RoboCup challenge which is intended to stimulate innovations in a wide range of technologies and the integration of technologies into a fully functional robotic soccer team. Given how primitive today's robots are compared to a good soccer team of 11 players, the inherent technical challenges are plentiful. The paper considers the use of genetic programming and multi-agent s... View full abstract»

    As information systems grow, they depend increasingly on diverse, heterogeneous resources, such as databases, knowledge bases, bibliographic files, Web-based information, computational facilities, digital libraries, geographic information systems, and simulations. Users typically develop and maintain these resources autonomously. Mediator modules comprise a layer of intelligent middleware services... View full abstract»

    With the growing number of information sources available through networks, the problem of how to combine distributed, heterogeneous information sources is becoming increasingly critical. The available sources include traditional databases, flat files, knowledge bases, programs, and so forth. The solution to this problem is to provide access to the large number of information sources by organizing ... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (27)  |  Patents (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1232 KB)

    The paper discusses a framework that uses machine learning and other automatic-learning methods to assess power-system security. The framework exploits simulation models in parallel to screen diverse simulation scenarios of a system, yielding a large database. Using data mining techniques, the framework extracts synthetic information about the simulated system's main features from this database View full abstract»

    The paper discusses InfoFinder, a system that uses several innovative approaches for learning user information interests from sets of messages or other online documents that users have classified. InfoFinder's innovations leverage the unique aspects of learning from user-classified documents in a real-world setting. Users find Infofinder to be an accurate and valuable tool for finding information ... View full abstract»

    An important aspect of a complex intelligent system is the human-computer interface. The paper discusses the less familiar topic of audio interfaces. The controversy surrounds which of the three competing audio interface approaches is most effective: sonification, earcons and auditory icons View full abstract»

    To liberate users from burdensome information-retrieval activities while incurring minimal system-development and runtime costs, the authors present query-free information retrieval. Their system, Fixit, integrates an expert diagnostic system with a preexisting full-text database of maintenance manuals View full abstract»

  • Knowledge verification with an enhanced high-level Petri-Net model

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):73 - 80
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (136 KB)

    We describe how to model rule-based systems using advanced Petri-net models in which variables and negation are exactly represented. We also explain how such models achieve knowledge verification. We explore the detection of improper knowledge, including redundancy, subsumption, conflicts, cycles, and unnecessary conditions, through reachability problems solved using an enhanced high-level Petri-n...

  • Cooperative answering through controlled query relaxation

    As knowledge storage systems grow in size and complexity, it becomes unreasonable to expect that users always know enough about the data and how the data are organized to construct accurate and useful queries. Even when a system has syntactic utilities for building queries, users continue to compose queries that contain misconceptions, are too general, or are bound to fail. Cooperative-answering s...
