Abstract:

"We propose to develop a knowledge based application for informationfusion and data monitoring. The Cyc Monitor will provide the end userwith the capability to seamlessly integrate multiple, semanticallyhetergenous data bases and knowledge sources within the Cyc knowledgebase, define high-level patterns, or concepts of interest, which mayappear directly or inferrentially among the disparate knowledgesources, to monitor the knowledge sources for data which meet thesecriteria, and to alert the end user when such patterns appear. Theknowledge sources may be static or dynamically updated; furthermore,they may be dispersed among a coalition of cooperating agents. Thealert will provide deductive justification of the conditions and datawhich triggered the alert, as well as permit the end user to adjustthe monitor behavior to adapt to a dynamic operational environment.Furthermore, the Cyc-based reasoning techniques will enable the userto "drill down" on the significance of individual data items in thededuction triggering the alert."
