Knowledge Based Systems (KBS) are systems that use artificial intelligence techniques in the problem solving process. This text is designed to develop an appreciation of KBS and their architecture and to help users understand a broad variety of knowledge based techniques for decision support and planning. It assumes basic computer science skills and a math background that includes set theory, relations, elementary probability, and introductory concepts of artificial intelligence. Each of the 12 chapters are designed to be modular providing instructors with the flexibility to model the book to their own course needs. Exercises are incorporated throughout the text to highlight certain aspects of the material being presented and to stimulate thought and discussion.

KADS is a structured methodology for the development of knowledge based systems which has been adopted throughout the world by academic and industrial professionals alike. KADS approaches development as a modeling activity. Two key characteristics of KADS are the use of multiple models to cope with the complexity of knowledge engineering and the use of knowledge-level descriptions as an immediate model between system design and expertise data. The result is that KADS enables effective KBS construction by building a computational model of desired behavior for a particular problem domain. KADS contains three section: the Theoretical Basis of KADS, Languages and Tools, and Applications. Together they form a comprehensive sourcebook of the how and why of the KADS methodology. KADS will be required reading for all academic and industrial professionals concerned with building knowledge-based systems. It will also be a valuable source for students of knowledge acquisition and KBS. * SPECIAL FEATURES: * KADS is the most widely used commercial structured methodology for KBS development in Europe and is becoming one of the few significant AI exports to the US. * Describes KADS from its Theoretical Basis, through Language and Tool Developments, to real Applications.

Intelligent Knowledge Based Systems in Electrical Power Engineering details how intelligent applications can be used in the power industry. The book gives a general and historical overview of intelligent knowledge based systems (IKBS) and artificial intelligence (AI) and a broad analysis of the application of these techniques in the electrical power industry. It includes chapters on forecasting and planning in power systems, design of electrical plant and systems, IKBS in condition monitoring, alarm processing, event and fault diagnosis and an analysis of future trends in IKBS for power engineering. No previous knowledge of IKBS is assumed, but an appreciation of electrical transmission and distribution systems would be useful.

For most of our history the wealth of a nation was limited by the size and stamina of the work force. Today, national wealth is measured in intellectual capital. Nations possessing skillful people in such diverse areas as science, medicine, business, and engineering produce innovations that drive the nation to a higher quality of life. To better utilize these valuable resources, intelligent, knowledge-based systems technology has evolved at a rapid and significantly expanding rate. Reflecting the most fascinating AI-based research and its broad practical applications, intelligent, knowledge-based systems technology is being utilized by nations to improve their medical care, advance their engineering technology, and increase their manufacturing productivity, as well as play a significant role in a very wide variety of other areas of activity of substantive significance. Today, in the beginning of the 21st century, it is difficult to imagine the development of the modern world without extensive use of the AI information technology that is rapidly transforming the global, knowledge- based economy as well as entire societies. The breadth of the major application areas of intelligent, knowledge-based systems technology is very impressive. These include, among other areas: Agriculture, Business, Chemistry, Communications, Computer Systems, Education, Electronics, Engineering, Environment, Geology, Image Processing, Information Management, Law, Manufacturing, Mathematics, Medicine, Meteorology, Military, Mining, Power Systems, Science, Space Technology, and Transportation. The great breadth and expanding significance of this field on the international scene require a multi-volume, majorreference work for an adequately substantive treatment of the subject, "Intelligent Knowledge-Based Systems: Business and Technology in The New Millennium." This work consists of the following distinctly titled and well integrated volumes. Volume I. Knowledge-Based Systems; Volume II. Information Technology; Volume III.Expert and Agent Systems; Volume IV.Intelligent Systems; Volume V.Neural Networks. This five-volume set clearly manifests the great significance of these key technologies for the new economies of the new millennium. The Volumes: Volume 1, Knowledge-Based Systems, addresses the basic question of how accumulated data and staff expertise from business operations can be abstracted into useful knowledge, and how such knowledge can be applied to ongoing operations. The wide range of areas represented includes product innovation and design, intelligent database exploitation, and business model analysis. (Eleven chapters) Volume 2, Information Technology, addresses the important question of how data should be stored and used to maximize its overall value. Case studies examine a wide variety of application areas including product development, manufacturing, product management, and product pricing. (Ten chapters) Volume 3, Expert and Agent Systems, considers such application areas as image databases, business process monitoring, e-commerce, and production planning and scheduling, offering a wide range of perspectives and business-function concentrations to stimulate readers' innovative thought. (Ten chapters) Volume 4, Intelligent Systems, discusses applications in such areas as mission-critical functions, business forecasting, medical patient care, and product design anddevelopment. (Nine chapters) Volume 5, Neural Networks, Fuzzy Theory, and Genetic Algorithm Techniques, explores applications in such areas as bioinformatics, product life-cycle cost estimating, product development, computer-aided design, product assembly, and facility location. (Ten chapters) The discussions in these volumes provide a wealth of practical ideas intended to foster innovation in thought and, consequently, in the further development of technology. Together, they comprise a significant and uniquely comprehensive reference source for research workers, practitioners, computer scientists, academics, students, and others on the international scene for years to come.
