Abstract:

This paper discusses the architecture of a meta-system which can be used to generate intelligent information systems for different domains of discourse. It points out the kinds of knowledge accepted by the system, and the way the knowledge is used to do nontrivial problem solving. The organization of the system makes it possible for it to function in the context of an expanding model space. The problem solving systems in the meta system communicate with the model space in the language defined for the domain. They have the capability to improve their performance, based on the knowledge gained from this communication. The meta system provides a basis for the definition of the concept of machine understanding in terms of the models that the machine can build in a domain, and the way it can use the models.
