Title: The Knowledge-Based Technology Application Center (KBTAC) seminar series. Volume 2, Introduction to knowledge-based systems for utility managers

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 managers need to acquire knowledge and skills in a number of areas: Fundamental concepts of computerized knowledge representation and reasoning (``inferencing``); Methods of identifying applications suitable for KBSS, and for analyzing their feasibility, costs, and benefits; The steps necessary to develop and maintain a KBs; Familiarity with the software and hardware tools available for KBS development. Future directions of both knowledge-based technology, and related utility industry needs. This Seminar covers these topics at an introductory level. 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. 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.
