    The Vital-KR, a software architecture for the development of hybrid knowledge-based applications, provides the basic substructure for integrating software and human agents in problem solving. The architecture provides implementation-level support in the Vital workbench, a methodology-based workbench covering the whole life-cycle of knowledge-based system (KBS) development, from requirements specif...

    The GA-P performs symbolic regression by combining the traditional genetic algorithms function optimization strength with the genetic-programming paradigm to evolve complex mathematical expressions capable of handling numeric and symbolic data. This technique should provide new insights into poorly understood data relationships View full abstract»

    In the early 1980s, the University of Edinburgh embarked on a technology transfer experiment. Ten years on, that experiment has proved a huge success. In 1984, the University took the novel step of establishing the Artificial Intelligence Applications Institute (AIAI) as the answer to the ever-growing request from industry for advanced information technology assistance to solve complex business pr...

    Corporate information system environments are heterogeneous, consisting of multiple and independently managed databases. Many applications that assist decision making call for access to data from multiple heterogeneous databases. To facilitate this, there needs to be an integrated representation of the underlying databases that allows users to query multiple databases simultaneously. The process o... View full abstract»

    Investigates three potential neural network training algorithms in processing active sonar returns. Although all three methods generate reasonable probabilities of detection and false alarm in discriminating between man-made objects and background events, the stochastic training methods of simulated annealing and evolutionary programming outperform backpropagation View full abstract»

    A major challenge in applying genetic programming to expert-system development is that the ubiquitous presence of irrelevant code makes a genetically induced program difficult to understand. The trait-mining technique extracts the expressions that comprise the program's salient problem elements View full abstract»

    The paper traces the development of a family of task support systems. Starting with the Poise system in the early 1980s, we visited issues such as office automation and the paperless office. We showed that office information systems such as Poise suffered from procedural rigidity, resulting in limited applicability. Knowledge-based techniques then emerged to meet these limitations. The successor t... View full abstract»
