This paper describes the design of and experimentation with the Knowledge Query and Manipulation Language (KQML), a new language and protocol for exchanging information and knowledge. This work is part a larger effort, the ARPA Knowledge Sharing Effort which is aimed at developing techniques and methodology for building large-scale knowledge bases which are sharable and reusable. KQML is both a message format and a message-handling protocol to support run-time knowledge sharing among agents… Expand

Abstract : The major areas of research described in this report include the contribution to the Knowledge Query and Manipulation Language (KQML) specification under the DARPA- sponsored KnowledgeExpand
Reuse, CORBA, and knowledge-based systems
By applying recent advances in the standards for distributed computing, we have developed an architecture for a CORBA implementation of a library of platform-independent, sharable problem-solvingExpand
Loubeth : An interactive Intelligent Agent for Electronic Negotiation *
Information systems with an intelligent or knowledge component are now prevalent and include knowledge-based systems, intelligent agents, and knowledge management systems. These systems are inExpand
DIF 8914 Distributed Information Systems Introduction of Ontology and Agent Communication
Ontologies are an emerging paradigm to support declarativity, interoperability, and intelligent services in many areas, such as Agent–based Computation, Distributed Information Systems, and ExpertExpand
A Communication Infrastructure for a Distributed
We present the concept and implementation of a communication infrastructure for a distributed database system. Within this model we use system components that build a federated multi agent systemExpand
Reuse For Knowledge-Based Systems and CORBA Components
TLDR
How CORBA might be used to implement knowledge-based systems reuse with a number of scenarios drawn from the experience with reuse and CORBA within the Protege environment are illustrated. Expand
- 1-When Knowledge Models Collide ( How it Happens and What to Do )
Interoperability and reuse of components and declarative knowledge are crucial to the further development of knowledge-based software. Unfortunately, it is hard to get components to interoperate andExpand
INDUSTRIAL MULTI-AGENT SYSTEMS INTEGRATION : AN APPROACH BASED ON INFORMATION EXCHANGE AMONG STANDARDS
This work proposes an approach to facilitate the integration in the communications among industrial systems and shop floor devices by means of a global and integrated environment. This environment isExpand
Toward semantic interoperability for software systems
TLDR
This thesis contributes to the study of semantic interoperability by identifying, developing and evaluating three approaches to the integration of information that are lightweight in nature, pragmatic in philosophy and general in application. Expand
A multi-agent system for acquiring and sharing lessons learned
TLDR
How to help the team members to feed the system with LL, using the operations they perform on desktop computers, and how the system is to exploit the LL by using a case-based reasoning engine. Expand

Enabling Technology for Knowledge Sharing
TLDR
This article presents a vision of the future in which knowledge-based system development and operation is facilitated by infrastructure and technology for knowledge sharing, and describes an initiative currently under way to develop these ideas. Expand
COSMO: a communication scheme for cooperative knowledge-based systems
TLDR
This account attempts to answer a set of critical yet unsettled questions of cooperative systems communication, such as when and how a knowledge-based system knows what message to send, what the conditions of success are for a message, and how individual systems cooperate with each other for different purposes.

View-Concepts: Knowledge-Based Access to Databases
TLDR
This work argues for the appropriateness of a knowledge representation language as a language for describing the database schema, user data structures, and the mapping between them, and presents a problem domain in which an existing relational database without a semantic schema must be accessed by a knowledge-based application. Expand
