A knowledge representation language for university requirements

View publication

Abstract

Intelligent systems with applications in an academic environment are becoming a reality. Such systems can offer intelligent assistance in tasks ranging from interactive scheduling, academic planning, office automation, database management and computer assisted instruction. The problem of designing a general requirements model for university degrees is investigated. A method for expressing the structure of university requirements is described, and a representation language consisting of a subset of Prolog based on set theoretic primitives is suggested. This work has been motivated by our experience with the Academic Planning Environment (APE) expert system project [9] whose goal has been to study the use of knowledge-based techniques in the advising and assistance of university students in the planning of their studies towards an academic degree. © 1991.
