Modern Interfaces for Knowledge Representation and Processing Systems Based on Markup Technologies

Ali Amer Mohammed Saeed, Dana Danciulescu


The usage of markup technologies to specify knowledge to be processed according to a specific field of application is a common technique. Representation techniques based on markup language paradigm to describe various types of knowledge including graph based models is considered and details on using Knowledge Representation and Processing (KRP) Systems in education are presented. XML, and VoiceXML were selected to implement smart interface for KRP systems.
