Easy to use workbenches for Qualitative Reasoning (QR) and Modelling are virtually nonexistent. This has a limiting effect on the use and uptake of the technology by a larger audience. We present Garp3, a user-friendly workbench that allows modellers to build, simulate, and inspect qualitative models. Garp3 can be used to, discover, capture, and share(More)
Building qualitative models is still a difficult and lengthy endeavour for domain experts. This paper discusses progress towards an automated modelling algorithm that learns Garp3 models based on a full qualitative description of the system’s behaviour. In contrast with other approaches (Bridewell et al. 2008; Bratko and Šuc 2004), our algorithm attempts to(More)
The desire to share and reuse knowledge has led to the establishment of the Web Ontology Language (OWL) knowledge representation language. The Naturnet-Redime project needs to share qualitative knowledge models of issues relevant to sustainable development and OWL seems the obvious choice for representing such models to allow search and other activities(More)
Conceptual modelling tools allow users to construct formal representations of their conceptualisations. These models are typically developed in isolation, unrelated to other user models, thus losing the opportunity of incorporating knowledge from other existing models or ontologies that might enrich the modelling process. We propose to apply Semantic Web(More)
46 AI MAGAZINE Modeling is regarded as fundamental to human cognition and scientific inquiry (Schwarz and White 2005). It helps learners express and externalize their thinking, visualize and test components of their theories, and make materials more interesting. Particularly, the importance of learners constructing conceptual interpretations of system(More)
