    The similarity between expert systems as the bandwagon of the early 1980s and hypertext as the new one will surely, with the power of hindsight, be obvious to the technological historian. Hypertext is more hype than hyper and it is likely that if it follows expert systems, then vast resources, both human and financial, will be squandered and that there will be little return in terms of useful, com...

    SD-Scicon has created a PC based system which integrates expert system and hypertext technologies. It is undergoing trials at several sites and is being used to generate Quality Plans, which can be over thirty pages long. This implementation employs a knowledge base with over 300 rules, and it provides direct hypertext access to over 400 pages of the company standards and procedures. The system is...

    The problem of errors in text is particularly severe in the publishing world, where high standards are required. The editor's job often involves extensive rewriting and high-level reorganisation of a text, but the most time consuming tasks are copy editing and proofreading. The paper describes a system whose purpose is to assist a human writer or editor in massaging a text to deal with these kinds... View full abstract»

    The IDAS project investigates the design and development of an Intelligent Documentation Advisory System (IDAS). The aim is to develop intelligent on-line technical documentation presented via hypertext and natural language generation and constructed dynamically by expert systems technology using object-oriented techniques. The IDAS being designed is targeted at users of an Automatic Test Equipmen... View full abstract»

  • Hypertext and hypermedia for the information scientist

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):5/1 - 5/5
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (240 KB)

    The work of the information scientist centres on the gathering, indexing, analysis, interpretation and communication of value added information, and extends into the design, evaluation and management of information retrieval and knowledge-based systems. Successful information provision depends on four factors: quality; accuracy; timing and technology. The paper concentrates on technology, and, in ... View full abstract»

    Hypertext provides a method of accessing document bases in which the user is in control and simply browses through the document base to find interesting documents. However, when document bases become very large there can be a heavy overload involved in creating links between all possibly relevant documents. Free text retrieval (or relevance based retrieval) systems provide users the ability to sea... View full abstract»

    In order for any organisation to fully utilise the information it has it is necessary to merge the information sources into a central location (effectively-a database) and provide tools that facilitate information retrieval and maintenance. The nineteen eighties saw a rapid uptake of desktop publishing (DTP), word processing (WP) and text composition systems which have allowed people to produce la... View full abstract»

    Discusses the implications for knowledge engineering of hypermedia systems. The author particularly focuses on the use of hypermedia for knowledge acquisition (KA) in all phases of KBS construction and maintenance. The acquisition of knowledge remains the critical phase of expert system development. A number of software support tools have appeared that provide for the analysis, refinement and inte...

  • Hypermedia: a route to system integration

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):9/1 - 9/3

    Many organisations face the problem of integrating documentation from multiple sources. Many also face the problem of integrating existing information technology. The author considers how hypertext and hypermedia offer a start as an enabling technology to link and bridge information and systems. He also considers the need for integration.<<ETX>> View full abstract»
