A dynamic, real-time expert system for process control and related applications has been introduced by Gensym Corp. of Cambridge, Massachusetts. The key feature of the system, called G2, is that it is designed to manage data in real-time environments: dynamic knowledge, as well as rules, can be represented. Gensym says that G2 considers the structure of the environment to determine where the problems or interesting events are, and then uses a focus capability that enables it to comprehend, and correctly respond to, time-critical information in rapidly changing situations. G2 is designed for applications where the data on which decisions are based, changes frequently, including process control, computer-integrated manufacturing, financial trading, network monitoring and robotics. Once in place, and given the necessary knowledge for decision-making, G2 is designed to oversee and direct many simultaneous events – to help processes run more safely, efficiently and productively. G2, out now at from $36,000, comes in versions for – unspecified – conventional computer systems, as well as specialist artificial intelligence processors, and is intended to enable non-programming professionals to build and manage their own knowledge bases, and uses structured natural language and graphics to simplify interaction with the system.
