Abstract:

This report describes concepts and a design architecture of an inference system in a fact-base supported information system. The architecture is specialized to efficiently handle the separate functions of deduction development, fact search, deduction verification by fact vase retrieval and or inferred information and user dialogue. Distinctive features of the design include 1 deduction development strategies based on performance success histories, 2 operation of deduction instantiation by real or inferred facts on a scheduled basis, 3 special inference system management of acquired facts including determination of fact retrieval requests that minimize search time and retrieval volume, and 4 special analyses that curtail non-useful deduction development. A program design is presented demonstrating separation of function modularity, and multi-user real-time capability. Author
