introduction to commonkads
Introduction to CommonKADS
  • Problem faced by Knowledge Engineers

--designing good KBS relies on knowledge engineer abilities

  • Approach to the problem--CommonKADS

--represent the expert knowledge and design specification in form of text or diagrams

  • Important components of CommonKADS

--Expertise Model: domain knowledge,inference knowledge, task knowledge

--Design Model

the commonkads design model1
The CommonKADS Design Model
  • Intends to support knowledge engineers in choosing knowledge representations and programming techniques
  • Three-stage transformation process

--Application design

--Architectural design

--Platform design

application design
Application Design
  • Purpose is to decompose the knowledge into manageable “chunks”
  • Three approaches

--Functional decomposition

--Object-oriented decomposition

--AI paradigms

functional decomposition
Functional Decomposition
  • Treat each inference step from the Expertise Model as a “chunk” of functionality
  • Benefits

--replicate expert problem solving process

--canonical inference has its expected functionality already defined

--preserve task structure

object oriented decomposition
Object-oriented Decomposition
  • Treat each concept from the domain model as a “chunk” of data--an object class
  • Preserve the structure of the domain models in the expertise model
  • inference and task structure may be maintained
  • Have difficulty in assigning production rules because they refer to more than one objects
ai paradigm
AI Paradigm
  • Include blackboard system, constraint-based programming, qualitative simulation, or model-based reasoning
  • “chunk”of knowledge may be constraints, knowledge sources, or whatever appropriate for the chosen approach
  • little of the structure of the expertise model will be maintained
architectural command
Architectural command
  • Characterize the contents of each “chunk”after decomposition to specify further design requirements
  • A function name that describe the action which the function performs

--e.g. an inference step of type select-subset can be implemented by a subset command

  • Help validate the Expertise Model
architectural design
Architectural Design
  • Task is to define a computational infrastructure capable of implementing the architecture commands defined in the application design
  • Emphasis is on choosing ideal techniques
  • Experience of knowledge engineer can play an important role
platform design
Platform Design
  • Consider how the ideal knowledge representation and inference techniques should be implemented in chosen software
  • Knowledge representation is not a problem
  • Some programming techniques may be awkward to implement
worked example i impress
Worked Example I: IMPRESS
  • Diagnose faults in machine
  • Application design: functional decomposition
  • Architectural design

--knowledge representation: objects

--inference step: production rules, object-based operations

  • Platform design: KAPPA-PC on Compaq 386
  • Flow of control: based on task structure from the Expertise Model
worked example ii x mate
Worked Example II: X-MATE
  • Assess the ability of mortgage applicants
  • Application design: functional decomposition
  • Architecture design: select data source, use production rules, choose rule set, use arithmetic functions
  • Platform design: KAPPA-PC 1.1 on HP Vectra 386 PC
  • Flow of control: repeat running through the whole inference structure
  • CommonKADS provides useful documentation of system design process
  • Encourage greater modularity and reusability of designs
  • Help to validate the Expertise Model
  • Weakness

--lack of guidance on selection of techniques

--lack of a defined set of architectural commands
