Knowledge acquisition is a critical bottleneck in building a knowledge-based system. Much research and many tools have been developed to acquire domain knowledge with embedded rules that may be ignored in constructing the initial prototype. Due to different backgrounds and dynamic knowledge changing over time, domain knowledge constructed at one time may be degraded at any time thereafter. Here, we propose knowledge acquisition, called enhanced embedded meaning capturing under uncertainty deciding (enhanced EMCUD), which constructs a domain ontology and traces information over time to efficiently update time-related domain knowledge based on the current environment. We enrich the knowledge base and ease the construction of domain knowledge that changes with times and the environment.
