A Unified Approach to A.I. Programming
A case is being made for the use of a high-performance knowledge representation and programming environment for the development of knowledge-based engineering systems. Such a system will integrate traditional engineering problem-solving methods with the evolving approach of knowledge-based techniques. The LASER system offers an object-based knowledge-representation infrastructure supporting a comprehensive set of tools which can be used to create application-specific software in a wide range of disciplines. LASER subsystems contain knowledge-based discrete-event simulation, rule-based programming, graphics-based model building, and expert system building tools. A significant feature is the ease with which existing software systems can be integrated with programs using artificial intelligence methodologies.
