Abstract:

Computer systems can assist in searching, understanding, and knowledge in creative problem-solving. We have explored this idea in the context of building a variety of intelligent support systems for high-functionality computer systems, emphasizing the following specific issues representation of programs as knowledge networks where the code, the documentation, and visual representations are external representations generated from the same complex internal knowledge structure user-definable filters to give users control of the parts they would like to see constraint mechanisms to maintain consistency between internal and external representations different browsing systems to explore hyperknowledge spaces and design kits as prototypes of hyperknowledge assistants. To increase the usefulness of high-functionality computer systems, they should be constructed as hyperknowledge systems where the intelligent support systems are an integral part of the overall design.
