SiFASyB Project:
Knowledge Acquisition for SiFAs

Major Qualifying Project

Student: Mark Santesson

Advisor: David C. Brown

SiFAKA is a GUI-based structured editor for creating Single Function Agents (SiFAs) -- small expert systems that can be used to build knowledge-based systems. The SiFAKA system was written by Patricia Currier.

SiFASyB was written to extend the SiFAKA syatem.

This MQP focusses on turning the save files from SiFAKA into an executable SiFA system, so that different SiFAs can be easily implemented and compared.
