Abstract

Abstract An example-based approach to knowledge-base management involves capturing all rules as example data. Such an approach has many advantages, as data have been studied extensively, and a variety of techniques for effective management have been developed. Expressing all rules as stereotypical data allowed in the system provides a comprehensive solution to the three basic problems of a knowledge-based system. It provides a simple end-user language by reducing rules to data, which have simpler semantics; it allows the storage of rules as data, and hence the use of database technology to store, retrieve and maintain rules; and it simplifies the execution of rules by reducing the execution to data comparison.
