Using Conceptual Analysis To Build Knowledge Bases.
Shinghal, Rajjan; Le Xuan, Albert
This paper describes the methods and techniques called Conceptual Analysis (CA), a rigorous procedure to generate (without involuntary omissions and repetitions) knowledge bases for the development of knowledge-based systems. An introduction is given of CA and how it can be used to produce knowledge bases. A discussion is presented on what is meant by learning and teaching a concept, a rule, and a principle. An explanation is provided of some of the pre-requisites and basic theories behind CA. The importance of positive examples and negative examples is emphasized and a specific instance of how a conceptual analysis can be performed to generate a knowledge base is demonstrated. It is pointed out the generalization and discrimination are the two most important concepts in the field of education and training. (JD)
