Encapsulation-Driven Approach to Interchange of Knowledge Base Structure

Krzysztof Kaczor and Grzegorz J. Nalepa
Abstract—Rules provide an efficient way of decision modeling. This is why they are commonly used in knowledge based decision support systems as knowledge representation method. During the years, many different rule representations providing different syntax, semantics and expressive power have been developed. Therefore, the problem of efficient rule interoperability became very challenging. Differences between existing rule representations can also be noticed in the context of knowledge base structure and cannot be omitted by interoperability methods. This paper discusses how the representation-specific structure of the decision process can be expressed in other representations with the help of knowledge encapsulation mechanism.

Index Terms—Semantic rule interoperability, knowledge structure, decision support systems, rule-based systems.
