Ensuring Weak Connectivity of the Expert System and Ontological Knowledge Base by Adding the Service Layer
Ryaskov Andrey Sergeevich

post-graduate student of the Department of Mathematics and Information Technology at Volgograd State Technical University, Institute of Architecture and Civil Engineering

400074, Russia, Volgogradskaya oblast', g. Volgograd, ul. Akademicheskaya, 1, aud. V-512


The aim of the article is to offer methods and applied technologies allowing to reduce the time of adapting knowledge bases and expert systems to one another. In his research Ryaskov gives an evaluation of the current connectivity architecture of expert systems and knowledge bases and analyzes drawbacks thereof, the main drawback being the need to rewrite the layer of conjunction of expert system and knowledge base whenever the data exchange protocol is changed. The author also sets a goal to reduce the connectivity between expert system and knowledge base. The architecture that is based on the weak connectivity architecture is extensively used in other fields. The research methods used by the author include the software engineering methods, descriptive logic, knowledge engineering and numerical methods. The service layer is exected based on the requirements set forth for client-service apps. As a result of his research, Ryaskov offers to use the mediation layer (service layer) and proves the novelty and efficiency of this approach. The author carries out an analysis of technologies allowing to abstract from data format provided by the knowledge base. The author decides that it is useful to apply the GraphQl technology for data exchange and the mediation layer should be used as a server (in terms of the client-server architecture). The author describes practical implementation of that decision for the expert system of the environmental load in Volgograd. Implementation of the service layer allowed to ease up the mutual adaptation of expert systems and knowledge bases and to reduce the component connectivity. As a prospect, the author offers to embed an access management component and general public service component into the servicelayer, for example, to provide data to the population about the environmental load. 

Keywords: SOAP, REST API, GraphQL, client-server architecture, weak connectivity architecture, knowledge base, expert system, ontology, OWL-wrappers, Prolog
