Introduction the global information society of the next millennium. The T his themed edition of the Journal is a successor to two earlier special issues. This towards truly intelligent software engineering tools, work was awarded a British Computer Society techniques and solutions to real problems. This mirrors the Information Technology IT medal for business and typical evolution path of any technology that usually technical contributions. Other papers report on work that is proceeds in three phases.
A frame may contain context knowledge facts and action knowledge cause—effect relations. The frames that contain action rules i. The other 17 1. A frame consists of a frame label and a set of slots, as schematically shown in Figure 1. Each slot stores either a set of statements rules or another frame that is at the next lower level in the hierarchy than the present level. In this manner, knowledge may be represented at several hierarchical levels in different degrees of detail i.
Generation of a knowledge base using frames is an evolutionary procedure. First, a generic frame i. This schematic frame will have a default label and a standard number of default sets. Subsequent steps are as follows: 1 Give a name label to the frame. Example 1. Note that the workcell consists of a four-axis robot, milling machine, conveyor, positioning table, inspection station, and a cell-host computer. They are represented by slots in the cell frame. Each of these slots contains a situational frame.
For example, the robot slot stores the robot frame as shown. The cell host also has a data slot, which stores the data files that are needed for the operation of the cell. The programs slot contains an action frame, which carries various procedures needed in the operation of the cell. Now let us address reasoning or knowledge processing, which is essential for problem solution through frames.
Reasoning using frames is done as follows. An external input say, operator command or a sensor signal or a program action triggers a frame according to some heuristics. Then, slots in the frame are matched with context i. Finally the appropriate procedures are executed by the action frames.
To illustrate this procedure, consider once again the manufacturing workcell problem shown in Figure 1. During operation of the reasoning mechanism the knowledge-base computer opens a workcell frame.
There will be both manual and automatic data inputs to the computer indicating the cell components e. The system matches the actual components with the slots of the frame. If there is no match and if the system has another workcell frame, that frame is matched. In this manner, the closest match is chosen and updated to obtain an exact match for all frames at all levels.
Then the action slots of the frame at the highest level cell level are activated. This will initiate the cell actions, which in turn trigger the cell-component actions. But the resolution i.
For example, the 20 1 Introduction to intelligent systems and soft computing coordination of a multi-component workcell is an activity that would require far more intelligence than the servo control of an axis of a robot. But the information for the former is needed at a considerably lower bandwidth and resolution than that for the latter.
It consists of a global database called a blackboard, several intelligent modules called knowledge sources, and a control unit, which manages the operation of the system.
The main feature of the blackboard architecture is the common data region blackboard , which is shared by and visible to the entire system. In particular, the database is shared by the knowledge sources.
Generally the knowledge sources are not arranged in a hierarchical manner and will cooperate as equal partners specialists in making a knowledge-based decision. The knowledge sources interact with the shared data region under the supervision of the control unit.
When the data in the blackboard change, which corresponds to a change in the context data condition , the knowledge sources would be triggered in an opportunistic manner and an appropriate decision would be made. That decision could then result in further changes to the blackboard data and subsequent triggering of other knowledge sources.
Data may be changed by external means for example, through the user interface as well as by knowledge-source actions.
External data entering the system go directly to the blackboard. Also, the user interface is linked to the blackboard. The operation of a blackboard-based system is controlled by its control unit. This architecture is generally fast, and particularly suitable for real-time control applications.
A blackboard may consist of more than one layer hierarchical level , each consisting of a subsystem, itself having a blackboard-system architecture.
In this manner, a hierarchical structure can be organized for the system. Hybrid systems consisting of subsystems having production and frame-based architectures can be developed as well. A knowledge-based controller is implemented in a hierarchical architecture. The hardware consists of a computer workstation connected through an IEEE parallel bus to a front-end dedicated controller board, which is built around the Intel microcontroller. This board constitutes the lower layer of the hierarchy where actual real-time control is performed.
The microcontroller computes and sends the control signal to the plant at every sampling interval. At the upper level of the hierarchy is the workstation where the knowledge-based system is implemented.
The workstation runs on 21 1. The knowledge-based process oversees and supervises the microcontroller on line. The user-interface process provides man—machine interaction for the operator, while the IEEE communication process exchanges information with the microcontroller board.
The knowledge-based system is implemented using a commercial expert system shell NEXPERT Object , which is a hybrid shell that has rule-based and frame-based knowledge representation. The knowledge-based process is implemented in a blackboard architecture and has six knowledge sources as depicted in Figure 1. The manual control knowledge source supervises the manual control operation and is also responsible for gathering open-loop process information like open-loop gain and process noise during manual control.
The plant monitor knowledge source examines plant response information. It contains heuristics to determine the achievable performance of the plant and the controller and decides whether the plant performance is acceptable.
The controller and actuation knowledge source oversees the control and actuation tasks for the plant. The scheduler knowledge source takes overall charge of the blackboard. It contains rules 22 that keep track of changes on the blackboard and decides which knowledge source to activate.
In this manner, the domain knowledge is isolated from the data. In a conventional program, written in a procedural language, the instructions and data structures are integrated together throughout the entire program. Hence even a small change to a data structure could make the program nonfunctional, clearly indicating an advantage of the object-oriented approach.
Many early knowledge-based systems were implemented in a symbolic language like Lisp and Prolog. However, with proper design, there can be a clear separation between the knowledge source and the inference engine, and this has led to the development of many so-called knowledge-based system shells or frameworks.
A knowledge-based system shell is just an empty knowledge-based system without any domain knowledge.
It provides an inference engine and a knowledge representation structure that can be used as a programming tool for developing knowledge-based systems in different application areas.
The output of this work was the dynamic research science centred in university laboratories. The scheduling system that now equips Work Manager and is primary research concerns were aimed at resolving used all over the UK. This system has received various theoretical issues such as devising reasoning strategies for awards including the British Computer Society IT different contexts.
This system, and technological concerns, for example, how to build agent which has also been deployed by BT, provides another systems to address practical problems. With this shift came proof of the scalability and robustness of constraint the notion of agents as embodied intelligences, which, optimisation techniques. This second infancy of software agent technology between telecommunications services at specification time also saw the birth of significant over-expectations of the and at run time.
This work illustrates the power of constraint potential impact of the technology on everyday life. To a 12 modelling but also stresses the need to enhance the large extent, this was due to two main factors.
Secondly, the partial and distributed information sources and services concept of mobile agents that roam the Internet, working on available from a medium such as the Internet into a behalf of their users simultaneously raised excitement and comprehensive integrated value-added service. It then goes trepidation in people. However, the reality of the slow rate on to describe a collaborative agent-based demonstrator of technological progress, and the innate difficulty of some travel assistance system that was built using the ZEUS tool- of the problems agent researchers are trying to address have kit.
The system combines services from a variety of sources served to dampen some of the excessive expectations. Our previous special issue, published during the second The paper by Judge et al p 79 describes the use of infancy period of agent technology, explored the rapidly agent technology to enhance a commercial workflow evolving area of software agents with some definitive management system. They argue that the agent layer introductory papers, and papers that described concept introduced by their approach contributes a much needed demonstrators of agent-based systems in a number of flexibility to the workflow management process, wherein application domains.
Last year, in a paper reviewing the the overall system is better able to dynamically react to research and development challenges for agent-based changing circumstances such as exceptions or new policy systems1, we argued that software agent technology had decisions.
Furthermore, we argued that what was near-term benefits, while the much harder and longer-term then lacking was the development of methodological goal remains the full-scale commercialisation of agent- approaches for engineering agent-based systems. The emphasis of each performance management of asynchronous transfer mode paper is naturally different, but to a large extent, all the ATM telecommunications networks. The authors argue papers focus on addressing problems within the context of that in order to build telecommunications network facilitating the transition of agent technology from management systems that can evolve at the same pace as the laboratories into widespread industrial use.
They an international standardisation body that aims to define elucidate their ideas with a demonstrator system that agent interfaces in order to support interoperability between manages a network to avoid unnecessary connection different agent systems. Necessarily, some form of rejection when there is spare capacity in the network. The last paper on collaborative agent technology, by Lee et al p 94 , focuses on the often-neglected questions of The next paper by Collis et al p 60 describes the ZEUS performance, scalability and stability of multi-agent collaborative agent building tool-kit.
The authors argue that systems. These non-functional issues are nonetheless of the agent development process should be transformed from paramount concern if multi-agent systems are to be a scientific discipline into an engineering one, where commercially deployed on a large scale.
The current experimental systems have many of the characteristics of biological computers brains in other words and are beginning to be built to perform a variety of tasks that are difficult or impossible to do with conventional computers.
As evident, the ultimate achievement in this field would be to mimic or exceed human cognitive capabilities including reasoning, recognition, creativity, emotions, understanding, learning and so on. This book comprising of 17 chapters offers a step-by-step introduction in a chronological order to the various modern computational intelligence tools used in practical problem solving.
Staring with different search techniques including informed and uninformed search, heuristic search, minmax, alpha-beta pruning methods, evolutionary algorithms and swarm intelligent techniques; the authors illustrate the design of knowledge-based systems and advanced expert systems, which incorporate uncertainty and fuzziness. Machine learning algorithms including decision trees and artificial neural networks are presented and finally the fundamentals of hybrid intelligent systems are also depicted.
Academics, scientists as well as engineers engaged in research, development and application of computational intelligence techniques, machine learning and data mining would find the comprehensive coverage of this book invaluable. Skip to main content Skip to table of contents. Advertisement Hide.
