Abstract
PAST AND CURRENT SCIENCE RESEARCH ARE GENERATING ENORMOUS AMOUNTS OF MANY DIFFERENT KINDS OF DATA, THAT ARE PRESENTLY STORED PRIMARILY ON MAGNETIC TAPE. OFTEN, EACH DATA SET IS LARGELY INACCESSIBLE TO ALL BUT THE FEW SCIENTISTS WHO DESIGNED AND BUILT THE ORIGINAL INSTRUMENTS, AND EVEN FOR THEM THE DATA MAY BE CUMBERSOME TO USE. L.N.K. CORPORATION PROPOSES TO DESIGN AND IMPLEMENT SOME KEY COMPONENTS OF A GROUNDBASED DATA MANAGEMENT SYSTEM WITH CAPABILITIES FOR DATA SCREENING, BROWSING, AND LOW AND HIGH LEVEL DATA ANALYSIS CAPABILITIES. THE SYSTEM WILL COMBINE SEVERAL COMPUTER TECHNOLOGIES INCLUDING THIRD GENERATION EXPERT SYSTEM TOOLS, ADVANCED DATA STRUCTURES, SPATIAL, GRAPHICAL, AND OTHER SCIENTIFIC DATABASE METHODS, AND PATTERN, IMAGE, AND OTHER SCIENTIFIC DATA ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES. THE SYSTEM WILL INCLUDE USER MODELS AND AN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE SEARCH TECHNIQUE DEVELOPED BY L.N.K. TO ENHANCE THE EFFICIENCY OF INFERENCING AND SPATIAL DATABASE ACCESS. A HIERARCHICAL PATTERN RECOGNITION SUBSYSTEM, AND A FLEXIBLE STRUCTURAL PATTERN ANALYZER, PRODUCTS DEVELOPED BY L.N.K., WILL BE INCORPORATED IN THE SYSTEM IN PHASE II. MUCH TEDIOUS DATA HANDLING, SUCH AS FORMATTING, PREPARATION,AND PRESENTATION WILL BE HANDLED EASILY IN THE PROPOSED SYSTEM, THUS BYPASSING THE KNOWLEDGE ACQUISTION BOTTLENECKS AND MAKING DATA ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES WIDELY AVAILABLE.
