    As laboratories round the world produce ever-greater volumes of DNA sequence data, efficient computational analysis techniques are becoming essential. This article surveys several efforts that apply machine learning techniques to gene recognition. Machine learning methods are well suited to sequence analysis because they can learn useful descriptions of genetic concepts when given only instances, ... View full abstract»

    This article describes computational problems that arise in representing knowledge about the metabolism in electronic form, in analyzing that knowledge to gain deeper insights into complexities of the metabolism, and in applying that knowledge to biology, biotechnology, and health care. These problems push the limits of existing techniques for knowledge representation, planning, integration of het... View full abstract»

    The needs of customers and business often coincide, but never so readily as when customer service representatives have knowledge about products and services at their fingertips-and never so effectively as when that knowledge is tailored to the needs of each client. This is the idea behind CSR Advisor, an expert system application we developed at AGT, a Canadian telecommunications company. The prog... View full abstract»

    When a major appliance or office machine breaks down, the vendor usually sends a field service technician to do the repairs. This sounds simple enough, but when the company has hundreds of field personnel covering a large area, and thousands of incoming calls each day, coordinating assignments and scheduling service workers can be a logistical nightmare. When a call comes into a traditional automa... View full abstract»

    Two prototype information-access applications show how the integration of natural language and hypermedia produces systems that allow users and systems to exchange more information. The author considers how the Natural Language Group designed the ALFresco prototype to provide information on 14th-century Italian frescoes and monuments and to suggest other masterpieces that might interest the user. ...

    Improved numerical weather prediction simulations have led weather services to examine how and where human forecasters add value to forecast production. The Forecast Production Assistant (FPA) was developed with that in mind. The authors discuss the Forecast Generator (FOG), the first application developed on the FPA. FOG is a bilingual report generator that produces routine and special purpose fo... View full abstract»

    Discusses how the Remap system (representation and maintenance of process knowledge) uses a semiformal representation that supports the design and maintenance of large-scale software systems. The conceptual model relates design rationale knowledge to the resulting system, providing the primitives/ templates with which we can capture (often informal) design rationale information. The model's semant... View full abstract»
