A Knowledge Acquisition System Based upon Structural Communication and Pattern Noting Technologies.
Dills, Charles R.; Romiszowski, Alexander
This paper describes a four-dimensional model for the science of knowledge acquisition and a classification system in terms of these dimensions. A summary of the state of the art in terms of the cells generated in a four-dimensional representation of this classification system is presented. The need for better tools for conducting knowledge classification efforts in many of these cells is shown. One such tool, derived from a teaching model called Structural Communication, is described. It is argued that this tool would be useful in many of the cells for which no tools currently are available. An experiment using the Structural Communication approach to knowledge acquisition at the inter-cultural level is described. The resulting knowledge (i.e., data) is anlayzed using a method called Pattern Noting. The results from the data analysis are discussed in terms of what they show concerning the usefulness of the approach to knowledge acquisition, and recommendations for further research and application are made.
