Acquiring knowledge from end users:
An interdependency-based approach
Dr. Jihie Kim
Research Assistant Professor at Computer Science Dep./USC
Constructing software for new
domains or extending existing software for newproblems is often too high and it
is frequently cited as a major impediment to broad dissemination of information
technology. The EXPECT project is addressing that problem by developing a
knowledge acquisition framework that empowers users and domain experts, such as
biologists or military officers, to augment, modify and adapt knowledge based
systems without needing to understand the details of the system's
implementation. The key to EXPECT's approach is that it captures the design
rationale for knowledge based systems, and uses that design knowledge to guide a
user in augmenting the system.
