Paper Abstract

The field of Artificial intelligence and especially the design of Knowledge bases is still experimental. Indeed there is no methodology for building knowledge bases. This paper is devoted to such an application, in which the inference engine is based on a pure object formalism (SHIRKA). Modeling in biology is not the easiest area to consider for the building of an expert system for assistance in modeling, see [Lebreton 82]. Our aim is to develop differents tools(methodological, graphical) taking in consideration the cognitive needs of the user during the modeling process. This paper show how a modular architecture of a knowledge base can assist during the mathematical modeling process. The system is composed by two module : The knowledge module and the assistance module. Both of them take into account the user point of view. This approach provides a framework for guiding the user during the modeling process.
