Knowledge structures for communications in human-computer systems; general automata-based.


Knowledge structures for communications in human-computer systems; general automata-based.

Koenig, Eldo C.

Wiley-IEEE Press


281 pages




Koenig (computer science emeritus, U. of Wisconsin-Madison) draws on his decades of practical experience along with his 34 previously published works in the field to create this one-stop resource. He focuses on six features required for communication in human-computer systems (HCS): extracting and storing the knowledge of sentences, knowledge association, deductive process, inference, feedback and sequencing of knowledge, illustrating how to achieve each by using the General Automata Method. He describes a general automaton in a detailed analysis, then addresses the processing of knowledge about automata, a general system of interactive automata, processing of knowledge about systems of automata, changing expressions of knowledge for communication from one form and style to another, and electronic security through pseudo languages. The result is challenging but thorough, and Koenig makes sure the text is accessible by including helpful appendices with background information.
