Supporting Knowledge-Intensive Processes

Knowledge-intensive processes are more unstructured processes with a lot of involvements of users with their experience. Supporting such processes at their levels requires modelling and enacting several different forms of knowledge. In general more explicit represented knowledge allows better support. But different forms of knowledge need different intuitive and adequate representations and inferences.

There are several moethods to formally represent knowledge. Graphical models can be an intuitive means to add knowledge into knowledge-based systems. Instead of manually creating knowledge bases, knowledge can also be learned from data. We distinguish between symbolic learning (learning decision trees andss case-based reasoning) and sub-symbolic learning (neural networks)

After completion of this module, the participants will be able to assess which kind of knowledge representation and reasoning is adequate and are able to develop appropriate knowledge-based systems. They can value the advantages of knowledge-based systems with respect to their costs and apply several methods to create knowledge bases.

  • Introduction: Knowledge in processes
  • Decision Tables
  • Rules
    • Textual represented rule (i.e. Horn clauses)
    • Forward and backward chaining
    • Data-driven and Goal-oriented
    • Negation-as-failure
  • Object-centred Systems
    • F-Logic/Objectlogic
  • Fuzzy Logic
  • Human-interpretation vs. machine-interpretation
    • Graphical modeling
    • Ontology-based modeling
  • Machine Learning: Learning Decision Trees
  • Case-Based Reasoning
  • Neuronal Networks
