A Model of Hierarchical Knowledge Representation – Toward Knowware for Intelligent Systems
Faculty of Information Technology, Macau University of Science and Technology, Avenida Wai Long, Taipa, Macau SAR, China
We propose a model for multiresolutionary knowledge representation; define concepts of domain, application, and working hierarchies; and discuss inference mechanisms in the knowledge hierarchy. We also introduce an automatic construction of the knowledge hierarchy for the development of intelligent systems.
