PROGRAMMING SYSTEM NUT


to Top KNOWLEDGE-BASED SOFTWARE ENGINEERING TOOLS

In principle, there are two ways to overcome bottlenecks that hinder the development of intelligent technical systems: to elaborate new and more effective methods of knowledge representation and manipulation, and co-operation between separate parallel systems. The aim of this project is to promote both these trends and develop for solving practical engineering problems an artificial intelligence environment based on high performance computer networks.

In the scope of this research automatic deduction methods and their usage in constructing computer programs are investigated. As the result the artificial intelligence system NUT has been developed.

The NUT system is a knowledge-based programming environment that combines object-oriented (procedural, modular) and declarative (structural synthesis of programs) programming paradigms.

to Top THE NUT SYSTEM ALLOWS

The NUT environment includes the language interface for C allowing to use programs written in C as components of the NUT system.



to Top THE NUT ENVIRONMENT CONTAINS

The NUT system is suitable for fast prototyping in different problem areas such as CAD/CAM, control systems, simulating systems, data modelling etc.


to Top APPLICATIONS

The results have been applied in modelling radar coverage of Estonia (V. Kotkas, R. Lõugas, M. Harf, J. Penjam) and in automating software engineering systems (A. Kalja, K. Kindel, T. Tiidemann (TTU)). Applications in higher education are associated with carrying out Tempus-projects (J. Penjam, M. Perkmann, J. Vain) and elaborating artificial intelligence related courses (E. Tõugu, J. Penjam, A. Kalja).
