Title: The Knowledge-Based Technology Applications Center (KBTAC) seminar series; Volume 3: Introductory knowledge-based system development seminar. Final report

Abstract

Knowledge-based systems (KBSs) are a means of capturing and productively and efficiently using a utility`s accumulated knowledge and expertise. To apply this technology, utility personnel need to acquire knowledge and skills in a number of areas: (1) Fundamental concepts of computerized knowledge representation and reasoning ({open_quotes}inferencing{close_quotes}); (2) Methods of identifying applications suitable for KBSs, and for analyzing their feasibility, costs, and benefits; (3) The steps necessary to develop and maintain a KBS; (4) Hands-on programming skills for KBS prototyping and development; (5) Familiarity with the software and hardware tools available for KBS development. For many applications, utility personnel with expert knowledge in a given field can acquire the skills to develop a KBS incorporating that knowledge. It is often easier to teach the expert how to program a KBS than to transfer expert knowledge to a programmer. This seminar will allow a utility employee to begin the process of developing a small KBS or prototype. The many ways in which KBTAC helps utilities in developing knowledge-based systems are discussed. This assistance ranges from phone or on-site consultation to development of a prototype or a complete knowledge-based system.
