Paper Abstract

The notion of perspective when supported in knowledge representation can allow the representation of multiple and varying points of view, some of which may even be inconsistent with one another. In an object-based knowledge representation methodology created and used by the authors, a perspective is defined by consolidating a number of objects and a number of those objects' associated attributes and method into a view. This view can help partition a knowledge domain into separate portions. A separate portion represents an individual's view of the knowledge domain. Representation of multiple and varying perspectives can add detail and context to the knowledge in a knowledge domain. The ability to create new perspectives may add to the existing knowledge as well as reveal paths to additional knowledge. A simple example is presented where perspectives are used to represent game playing strategies and levels of expertise in those strategies. Players' perspectives are adapted and changed to provide additional knowledge and insight into further game playing strategies. Results show improvement in the playing of the games. Additionally, a more complex problem for applying these techniques is introduced.
