Knowledge Engineering: Principles and methods. (English) Zbl 0896.68114
Summary: This paper gives an overview of the development of the field of knowledge engineering over the last 15 years. We discuss the paradigm shift from a transfer view to a modeling view and describe two approaches which considerably shaped research in knowledge engineering: role-limiting methods and generic tasks. To illustrate various concepts and methods which evolved in recent years we describe three modeling frameworks: CommonKADS, MIKE and PROTÉGÉ-II. This description is supplemented by discussing some important methodological developments in more detail: specification languages for knowledge-based systems, problem-solving methods and ontologies. We conclude by outlining the relationship of knowledge engineering to software engineering, information integration and knowledge management.
