Toolset: OSU LAIR Generic Task Toolset
The Integrated Generic Task Toolset provides computational mechanisms
especially suited for certain reasoning tasks which are typically
encountered during the course of diagnosis, design, planning, and
similar knowledge-based activities. By directly supporting a set of
basic reasoning tasks, the toolset provides building blocks out of
which more complex reasoning systems can be built. To support a
particular reasoning task, the toolset provides a set of appropriate
mechanisms, each with its own control strategies and characteristic
ways of organizing and representing knowledge. Thus, the toolset
provides to the knowledge system builder an advantage over rules,
logic, semantic nets, frames, and neural nets, similar to the
advantage that higher-level languages provide over assembly language
for the computer programmer.
