Abstract
This SBIR Phase I project will create an event representation framework and generate a catalogue of reasoning mechanisms for transforming domain specific events into a convenient representational framework. The choice of the representation scheme used to model a domain for analysis by the neural network of fuzzy logic system can make an enormous difference in the ease and efficiency of the problem analysis. Typically, no particular paradigm is best for modeling systems -- multiple models are used to obtain useful inferences. This strategy entails combining multiple bodies of information and establishing a framework for global interpretation of context specific information. The absence of sound and proven techniques that facilitate integrated information modeling and create efficient, global event-in-scenario representations makes such neural network and fuzzy logic applications difficult. The proof of concept for these methodologies will be demonstrated through a prototype for an Generalized Event Representation Modeling and Analysis Tool (GERMAT) for the new generation information processing paradigms. The product is commercially viable -- it will popularize use of neural networks and fuzzy logic application by simplifying modeling in these paradigms, facilitating re-use of information between different neural network and fuzzy logic applications, and facilitating integrated modeling that addresses complex real world problems. A generic framework to rapidly model neural network/fuzzy logic applications would have significant benefits in pattern recognition, forecasting modeling, decision support systems, and control systems.
