  • About the Edition

    Knowledge-based (KB) technology is being applied to complex problem-solving and critical tasks in many application domains. Concerns have naturally arisen as to the dependability of knowledge-based systems (KBS). As with any software, attention to quality and safety must be paid throughout development of a KBS and rigorous verification and validation (V&V) techniques must be employed. Research in V&V of KBS has emerged as a distinct field only in the last decade and is intended to address issues associated with quality and safety aspects of KBS and to credit such applications with the same degree of dependability as conventional applications. In recent years, V&V of KBS has been the topic of annual workshops associated with the main AI conferences, such as AAAI, IJACI and ECAI. Validation and Verification of Knowledge Based Systems contains a collection of papers, dealing with all aspects of KBS V&V, presented at the Fifth European Symposium on Verification and Validation of Knowledge Based Systems and Components (EUROVAV"99 - which was held in Oslo in the summer of 1999, and was sponsored by Det Norske Veritas and the British Computer Society"s Specialist Group on Expert Systems (SGES).

The design theory is instantiated in a real-world verification tool development project at Uppsala University.

Verification and validation are independent procedures that are used together for checking that a product, service, or system meets requirements and specifications and that it fulfills its intended purpose.

These are critical components of a quality management system such as ISO The words "verification" and "validation" are sometimes preceded with "independent", indicating that the. Verification and validation (V&V) of computational simulations are the primary methods for building and quantifying this confidence.

An expert system is a computer program that includes a representation of the experience, knowledge, and reasoning processes of an expert.

Verification of an expert system is the task of determining that the system is built according to its specifications. “Model-based systems engineering (MBSE) is the formalized application of modeling to support system requirements, design, analysis, verification and validation activities beginning in the conceptual design phase and continuing throughout development and later life cycle phases.” INCOSE SE Vision (INCOSE-TP, Sep )File Size: 2MB.

on verification and validation of case-based systems. Section 4 argues that case-based systems are different than other types of systems and thus should require a unique approach to verification and validation.

These factors provide the basis of the remainder of the article. Abstract. In last decades Knowledge Based System (KBS) became a common tool in a large number of Power Systems Control Centres (CC). In fact, the quantity, diversity and complexity of KBS increased significantly leading to important changes in KBS structure, especially in its nuclear components: knowledge representation and reasoning.
