AICorp Inc of Waltham, Massachusetts took the opportunity of the American Association of Artificial Intelligence trade show in Anaheim, California to make a bunch of announcements. Firstly, it has a new version of KBMS, its Knowledge Base Management System, that operates under a Microsoft Windows 3.0 environment. This version costs $8,500 and ships in November. At the show AICorp also demonstrated a working verion of KBMS running on a Sun Sparcstation – its first Unix implementation, which should be commercially available later this year. To prove how important the Unix market is to the company AICorp has formed a Unix Development Council, a steering committee comprised of prominent users of the company’s KBMS product, to assist the firm in designing and testing KBMS for the Unix environment. The commit-tee will focus on KBMS for Sun Sparcstation, the IBM RS/6000, DEC’s and Hewlett-Packard’s implementations of Unix as well as other System V environments – initial members of the committee include representatives from General Electric and Barclay’s Bank. Acknowledging some weakness in the support and systems integration the company has signed up Carnegie Group to provide consulting and systems development services to users of AICorp’s KBMS and to take KBMS into new industries such as metal manufacturing and electronic data processing. AICorp will license and resell Carnegie Group’s ROCK, the Representation of Corporate Knowledge, as part of the KBMS toolkit. ROCK, is an implementation of the Initiative for Managing Knowledge Assets technology – IMKA – developed by Carnegie for use by DEC, Ford Motor Co, Texas Instruments and US West Advanced Technology (CI No 1,412).
