PENTAGON-AREA KNOWLEDGE ENGINEERING SYMPOSIUM TO IMPACT INDUSTRIAL EVOLUTION OF 'SMART' COMPUTER PROGRAMMING

PENTAGON-AREA KNOWLEDGE ENGINEERING SYMPOSIUM TO IMPACT INDUSTRIAL
 EVOLUTION OF 'SMART' COMPUTER PROGRAMMING
 "Smart" computer programs are about to get smarter, if knowledge engineers, the people who build them, have anything to say about it.
 The International Association of Knowledge Engineers (IAKE) has disclosed a policy departure that promises to affect not only its thousands of members worldwide, but also hi-tech software engineers and advanced computing consultants involved in other aspects of computer system integration.
 The new policy, to be formally activated at IAKE's third annual symposium, "New Generation" Knowledge Engineering, Nov. 16-19, encourages all branches of computer professionalism, beyond the Artificial Intelligence research elite, to get involved in smart system development. The three day event, also featuring industry exhibits, will take place near the Pentagon at the National Airport Doubletree Hotel.
 Smart, also known as "intelligent" or "knowledge-based" computer software is capable of "learning" or being "trained" to work by imitating reasoning capabilities of humans.
 Ed Mahler of Dupont will give the keynote address. As chief knowledge engineer, Mahler was architect of the corporate giant's artificial intelligence center, and responsible for its development of hundreds of successful smart systems.
 Tutorial, workshop and panel topics in system development will be converged with those in system management technologies, reflecting "New Generation's" liberalization of the way the knowledge engineering profession looks at itself. Such Advanced Computing Technology topics as Knowledge-Based Software Engineering, Fuzzy Systems, Neural Networks, Genetic Algorithms, and Intelligent Multimedia (Virtual Realities) will be presented in the context of corporate knowledge asset utilization.
 "We think this development may impact industrial productivity like none since the expert system revolution," said Milton White, chairman of IAKE, at the organization's worldwide headquarters in Gaithersburg, Md. He was referring to the commercial breakthrough of the best known type of intelligent system, used to capture and process the knowledge of experts in virtually all fields of industrial activity.
 White said he based this belief on the symposiums's providing the first organized opportunity for professionals to seriously approach the search for strategies that formally link system construction with system management, using knowledge as the common denominator. "'New Generation' Knowledge Engineering isstructured to dynamically connect the ideas of knowledge asset management with the knowledge-based software engineering process," he said.
 Dr. Elias Awad, of the McIntyre School of Commerce is symposium chair.
 Domains that will have smart system theory and applications discussed and demonstrated at the symposium include aerospace, medicine, manufacturing, finance, energy, entertainment, hi-tech consulting, and various physical and social sciences.
 IAKE is a non-profit organization that provides professional guidance and support for knowledge engineers in 37 countries and eight international chapters around the world.
