KL-ONE is o system for representing knowledge in Artificial Intelligence progroms. It has been developed and refined over o long period ond hos been used in both basic research and implemented knowledge-based systems in o number of places in the Al community. Here we present the kernel ideas of KL-ONE, emphasizing its ability to form complex structured descriptions. In oddition to detoiling oil of KL-ONE’s description-forming structures, we discuss o bit of the philosophy underlying the system… Expand
The CLASSIC Knowledge Representation Systemor , KLONE : The Next
the maturation of some of the original features of kl-one, and the decline and fall of others. A number of key ideas are analyzed|including the interpretation of frames as descriptions, theExpand
Living wiht Classic: When and How to Use a KL-ONE-Like Language
TLDR
By analyzing the representational strengths and weaknesses of CLASSIC, this work considers the circumstances under which it is most appropriate to use (or not use) it and addresses some of the key difficult issues encountered by new users. Expand
Report RR-90-06 Hybrid Inferences in KLONE-based Knowledge Representation Systems
We investigate algorithms for hybrid inferences in KL-oNE-based knowledge represent ation systems. Those systems employ two kinds of formalisms: the t erminological and the assertional formalism .Expand
Knowledge in operation
The L, , knowledge representation language and an inference engine to interpret it have been developed as part of the LILOG project, where now concepts for understanding natural-language texts wereExpand
The Future of Knowledge Re resent at ion
Knowledge representation (KR) has traditionally been thought of as the heart of artificial intelligence. Anyone who has ever built an expert system, a natural language system-almost any AI system atExpand
Intensional subsumption in a general taxonomic knowledge representation language
TLDR
A KR language with a set of formal foundations which supports many of the features that Woods advocated is specified, and the widely accepted constraint that KR systems should be sound and complete in worst case polynomial time is upheld. Expand
Hybrid Systems for Knowledge Representation in Artificial Intelligence
TLDR
Various hybrid schemes of KR were explored at length and details presented and merits and demerits of combinations were discussed. Expand
Knowledge representation on the connection machine
TLDR
PARKA, a pseudo-acronym for “Parallel Knowledge Representation and Association”, was developed as the prototype of one such tool: a knowledge representation system modeled on a frame-based representation language (FDL) paradigm. Expand
Modelling Knowledge for a Natural Language Understanding System
TLDR
This work supports the point that this problem can only be solved by using adequate metainformation about the content and structuring principles of the representational systems concerned to deduceStructuring principles for the modelling process. Expand
The Tractability of Subsumption in Frame-Based Description Languages
TLDR
Evidence is presented as to how the cost of computing one kind of inference is directly related to the expressiveness of the representation language. Expand

The author discusses a number of issues that serve as research goals for discovering the principles of knowledge representation, using techniques and concepts evolved while developing theExpand
Krypton: A Functional Approach to Knowledge Representation
TLDR
The authors have developed a design strategy for avoiding these types of problems and have implemented a representation system based on it, called Krypton, which clearly distinguishes between definitional and factual information. Expand
THE STRUCTURE AND ORGANIZATION OF A SEMANTIC NET FOR COMPREHENSION AND INFERENCE
TLDR
A network representation for propositional knowledge that is capable of encoding any proposition expressible in natural language, and the feasibility of building such hierarchies, inserting information into them automatically, and accessing the inserted information with a second experimental implementation is demonstrated.

In this article* the more common interpretations of IS-A are cataloged and some differences between systems that, on the surface, appear very similar are pointed out. Expand

ON THE EPISTEMOLOGICAL STATUS OF SEMANTIC NETWORKS
TLDR
This chapter examines in detail the history of a set of network-structured formalisms for knowledge representation—the so-called “semantic networks,” which were introduced around 1966 as a representation for the concepts underlying English words and were designed expressly to treat concepts as formal representational objects.

Towards a computational theory of definite anaphora comprehension in English discourse
TLDR
The focussing mechanism is designed to take advantage of syntactic and semantic information encoded as constraints on the choice of anaphora interpretation, and provides a principled means for choosing when to apply the constraints in the comprehension process. Expand
Artificial intelligence meets natural stupidity
TLDR
As a field, artificial intelligence has always been on theborder of respectability, and therefore on the border of crackpottery, and is justifiably proud of its willingness to explore weird ideas, because pursuing them is the only way to make progress. Expand
