In this paper we outline the structure of a tool supporting a knowledge engineer (KE) in the knowledge acquisition process for building Knowledge Based Systems (KBS) for different kind of applications. We believe it is impossible to make a machine performing automatically this process, since too many competences should be transferred from the KE to a computer. In order to develop an effective support system, a model of the KE's knowledge is needed. GEKATOO implements a proposal for such a model, partitioning the expert's knowledge into three areas. The first two are related to the domain of application and the classes of application. The third one enables domain and application independent analysis of the reasoning methods to be used by the KBS to generate new knowledge from the one already present. The result of the application of GEKATOO is a conceptual model of the knowledge needed to implement a KBS solving the task defined by the expert.

Abstract

In this paper we outline the structure of a tool supporting a knowledge engineer (KE) in the knowledge acquisition process for building Knowledge Based Systems (KBS) for different kind of applications. We believe it is impossible to make a machine performing automatically this process, since too many competences should be transferred from the KE to a computer. In order to develop an effective support system, a model of the KE's knowledge is needed. GEKATOO implements a proposal for such a model, partitioning the expert's knowledge into three areas. The first two are related to the domain of application and the classes of application. The third one enables domain and application independent analysis of the reasoning methods to be used by the KBS to generate new knowledge from the one already present. The result of the application of GEKATOO is a conceptual model of the knowledge needed to implement a KBS solving the task defined by the expert.
