Automating the World with KEEL® Technology
Systems (military, network, security, medical, transportation…) are getting more and
more complex. In future systems, assets will not necessarily be commanded directly by
humans. The assets themselves may be autonomous or semi-autonomous software agents
or devices (machines). At the same time humans must retain control of those assets.
In this new environment, machines (software and/or hardware) will need to be able to
interpret policies that were previously interpreted by humans. The use of “English”
written or spoken language will not provide “sufficient” detail for machines to provide
this service. In the present factory automation market, distributed machine control is
commanded by exchanging variables with explicit values. Programs are executed to
utilize these values to produce products and services. Unfortunately the machines and
software agents in the future will not be bound to the factory floor. These machines must
address complex (dynamic, non-linear, interactive, multi-dimensional) problems. These
machines (and software agents) will still need explicit judgment and reasoning
capabilities (policies) to control their actions. IF | THEN | ELSE logic will not be cost
effective to develop to provides the necessary level of service.
Compsim believes that businesses and organizations are facing an environment that is more complex and more dynamic than ever before. It will be necessary to automate more and more services just to keep pace. Compsim believes that just adding more computers in order to process more information faster, will not be satisfactory when there is an exponential growth in the amount of information that needs to be processed, and more complex inter-relationships that need to be considered.
The conventional position has been that only humans have the ability to exercise judgment and reasoning: Human expertise (the application of judgment and reasoning) cannot be computerized. Compsim disagrees with that position and feels it has identified a way that judgment and reasoning can be encapsulated and automated. Compsim believes that providing a means to automate this type of information processing will cause a paradigm shift in almost all industries and organizational structures.
Compsim believes that the automation of judgment and reasoning must be 100% explainable and auditable to be successful. Compsim also believes that the processing model must satisfy the performance and memory-requirements for embedding into small real-time devices to maximize the impact on target markets.
Compsim believes that the future of information processing will need to incorporate judgment and reasoning in order to satisfy the expectations and demands of future systems. Judgment and reasoning require the "collective" processing of interconnected problems and solutions. Compsim believes that when computers and computerized devices incorporate these concepts that all industries and organizational structures will be transformed. Companies and organizations that have access to this capability we become the dominant players in the future. Those that do not will play a secondary role.
