Selection of knowledge acquisition techniques based upon the problem domain characteristics of production and operations management expert systems

William P. Wagner, Mohammad K. Najdawi, Q.B. Chung
2001 Expert systems  
In this paper 76 we present a mapping between these empirical studies and a generic taxonomy of expert system problem domains.  ...  In so doing, certain knowledge acquisition techniques can be prescribed based on the problem domain characteristics.  ...  In either case, well-structured knowledge acquisition techniques seem to work best in analytic problem domains and protocol analysis performs poorly in all of the comparative studies.  ...

Error repair and knowledge acquisition via case-based reasoning

Takeshi Kohno, Susumu Hamada, Dai Araki, Shoichi Kojima, Toshikazu Tanaka
1997 Artificial Intelligence  
To cope with the knowledge acquisition bottleneck, the authors propose a new architecture combining rule-based reasoning (RBR) , case-based reasoning (CBR) and knowledge acquisition technology in a system  ...  The knowledge acquisition part relates each case family to an incomplete rule in the RBR knowledge base and proposes modifying the rule.  ...  In knowledge acquisition studies, several new approaches which search bugs in the rules using stored cases and improve the rules, for instance [S], have been presented.  ...

Invented Predicates to Reduce Knowledge Acquisition [chapter]

Hendra Suryanto, Paul Compton
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
As the expert provided knowledge the system would generalize from this knowledge in order to reduce the need for later knowledge acquisition.  ...  The aim of this study was to develop machine learning techniques that would speed up knowledge acquisition from an expert.  ...  This lack of internal structure has been a criticism of RDR in the knowledge acquisition community.  ...

Grammar as a Maturational Controlled Behavior: Minimality in Development and Impairment

Maria Garraffa
2017 Biolinguistics  
If this is the case, we should aspect to find in nature a developmental disorder selective for this operation, a dissociation in the process of acquisition of grammatical based intervention structures  ...  The fundamental argument in these studies is that some aspects of syntax are affected by lack of language input (as in the case of hearing loss) or by a neurocognitive deficiency (as in the thiamine deficiency  ...

What they know vs. what they do: how acquirers leverage technology acquisitions

Phanish Puranam, Kannan Srikanth
2007 Strategic Management Journal  
This apparent paradox can be resolved once we account for the qualitatively distinct ways in which acquirers leverage technology acquisitions.  ...  Existing research suggests that in acquisitions of small technology based firms by large established firms, post merger integration both enables and hinders acquirer's efforts to leverage the technology  ...  This argument is particularly clear in the case of structural integration, which is essentially a discrete choice about post-acquisition organizational form.  ...
