Gestion des versions pour la construction incrémentale et partagée de bases de connaissances

Abstract : For major scientific and technical domains, traditional media (e.g. paper) are insufficient to handle the increasing volume and complexity of knowledge. Computers may offer efficient alternatives for the modelling, management and exploitation of knowledge. Such solutions are known as knowledge bases. In most domains, knowledge is not static and complete but rather evolving and being discovered. Consequently, a knowledge base must be built incrementally over time. Incremental means that we start with a small base, which grows with the acquisition of new knowledge. Many people may need to work together to build the knowledge base. This thesis studies the version management problem in the context of knowledge bases. It offers two main contributions. Firstly, we design and implement a version management system for knowledge bases. By definition, a version is a state of the base at a precise moment. Versions help to maintain a history of changes. They also allow decisions to be reversed and alternative hypotheses to be investigated. Secondly, we contribute to the design of an environment for incremental and concur- rent knowledge base building. We point out how our version system can be integrated into this environment.
