Deeper insight into knowledge-based systems

Reliable and in time alarming of landslides requires the development of an alert system. In this project standard investigation and interpretation methods (i.e. observations with geodetic and geotechnical sensors, geometrical and geophysical slide-models etc.) shall be significantly improved using knowledge-based systems as new key technology.
Originally coming from artificial intelligence, knowledge-based systems are suitable to combine hybrid sources of quantitative and qualitative expert knowledge using rule-based inference components. Automated decision processes can be established supporting the user to handle the often enormous amount of information in the right way.

In geodetic and geotechnical applications the typical combination of incoming measurement data and its interpretation provides a very high potential for knowledge-based applications. The operational use is still at the beginning and offers a rich field for research activities. The main goals linked with this project can be focussed on:
1. Creation of methods and tools for geodetic and geotechnical knowledge acquisition.
2. Represen-tation and merging of complex knowledge in computer models.
3. Integration of knowledge-based systems in engineering processes.
