|The SHERPA project ended on December 31, 1999. Its activities have been transferred to 3 new research actions: EXMO, HELIX et ROMANS.|
The Sherpa project designs and studies knowledge models, together with their exploitation mechanisms, which are adapted to the requirements of these scientific and technical knowledge bases. A knowledge base management system is being developed. It supports an incremental and cooperative design process. All these fundamental and technical results are experimented through the design of knowledge bases in molecular biology and of corporate memories.
Keywords: knowledge representation, knowledge bases, object knowledge models, classification, categorisation, types, constraints, tasks, problem solving, molecular biology, multiple standpoints, medicine diagnosis, granularity, corporate memory.
