Abstract:

This report describes the efforts surrounding the Challenge Problem Development and Evaluation Management for DARPAs Rapid Knowledge Formation RKF program. The goal of RKF was the development of technology by which subject matter experts SMEs can develop knowledge bases KBs directly, without the intervention of professional knowledge engineers KEs. IETs primary responsibility under RKF during the first two years was qualitative and quantitative evaluation of RKF-developed technology with respect to challenge problems CPs that they developed and administered. RKFs annual evaluation cycle began with new CP discussions in the Fall PI meeting, with subsequent CP specification, and a major evaluation during the summer. This document refers to RKFs first evaluation year ending Fall 2001 as RKF Y1 and to its second evaluation year ending Fall 2002 as RKF Y2.
