Software Toolkit for Building Embedded and Distributed Knowledge-based Systems.

Dmitri Soshnikov: Software Toolkit for Building Embedded and Distributed Knowledge-based Systems CSIT 2000 : 103-111


The paper discusses the basic principles and the architecture of the software toolkit for constructing knowledge-based systems which can be used cooperatively over computer networks and also embedded into larger software systems in different ways. Presented architecture is based on frame knowledge representation and production rules, which also allows to interface high-level programming languages and relational databases by exposing corresponding classes or database tables as frames. Frames located on the remote computers can also be transparently accessed and used in inference, and the dynamic knowledge for specific frames can also be transferred over the network. The issues of implementation of such a system are addressed, which use Java programming language, CORBA and XML for external knowledge representation. Finally, some applications of the toolkit are considered, including e-business approach to knowledge sharing, intelligent web behaviours, etc.
