Course ContentKnowledge Engineering is a discipline that involves integrating
knowledge into a program for solving a complex problem, which requires
human expertise. Typical tasks are classification, diagnosis, planning
etc. In the course we use CommonKADS as the methodology for the process
of modeling the organisation, the context and the knowledge intensive
This methodology give clear guidelines and concrete templates for
modeling the organisational aspects and the expertise model, which is
the core model of knowledge based system. The notion of pattern-based
knowledge modeling is a key issue in the knowledge modelling process.
The goal of the final project is to perform the entire knowledge
technology process for a knowledge intensive problem of your own
choosing, starting with context analysis, up to a (partial)
implementation of the knowledge based system.
