Biography

Professor E Szczerbicki has had very extensive experience in the area of intelligent systems development over an uninterrupted 30 year period, 10 years of which he spent in the top information science research centres in the USA, UK and Germany. In this area he contributed to the understanding of information and knowledge management in complex systems operating in changing environments characterised by informational uncertainties. He has published over 300 refereed papers which attracted more than 800 citations over the last 20 years (ISI Web of Science; Google Scholar).

His DSc degree (1993) and the Title of Professor (2006) were gained in the area of information science for his international published contributions. Since coming to Australia in 1994, he has been awarded over 20 different competitive grants, and has also coordinated 4 Large European Union (EU) grants in the area of intelligent systems development. Contribution to the Research Area of Intelligent Information and Knowledge Management. The research of Prof Szczerbicki contributes significantly to the area of smart information use in modelling and development of complex and intelligent systems. With his papers published in the beginning of the nineties in IEEE Transactions he developed autonomous systems based on information processing for the purposes of intelligent decision support. This was his unique contribution to the emerging cross-disciplinary research area of smart information use for which information has a value, is treated as the main resource, and is the basis for intelligent decision making. Since then, he has contributed to the field with over 200 refereed publications making an outstanding impact at the international level.

In 1999 he was invited to serve as a Board Member of International Academic Advisory Council for Natural and Artificial Intelligence Systems Organization (NAISO), Canada. He was also invited to join Editorial Boards of Cybernetics and Systems, Cognitive Processing, International Journal of Knowledge-Based Intelligent Engineering Systems, and Management and Control. The contributions of Professor Szczerbicki have additionally been most recently acknowledged by (i) 10 invitations to deliver keynote addresses at international conferences (ii) invitation to act as a General Chair for International Symposium on Advances in Intelligent Industrial Systems, Australia 2000, Co-Chair for International Conference on Intelligent Information Technology for Environmental Engineering, Poland 2003, Track Chair for KES06, KES10, KES12 in the UK and (iii) invitation to guest edit close to 20 volumes of CBS Special Issue on Intelligent Systems in the period of  2002-2014.

In the real world, it is common to face optimization problems that have two or more objectives that must be optimized at the same time, that are typically explained in different units, and are in conflict with one another. This paper presents a hybrid structure that combines set of experience knowledge structures (SOEKS) and evolutionary algorithms, NSGA-II (Non-dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm II), to solve multiple optimization problems. The proposed structure uses experience that is derived from a former decision event to improve the evolutionary algorithm's ability to find optimal solutions rapidly and efficiently. It is embedded in a smart experience-based data analysis system (SEDAS) introduced in the paper. Experimental illustrative results of SEDAS application to solve a travelling salesman problem show that our new proposed hybrid model can find optimal or close to true Pareto-optimal solutions in a fast and efficient way.

Decision recommendations are a set of alternative options for clinical decisions (e.g. diagnosis, prognosis, treatment selection, follow-up and prevention) that are provided to decision makers by knowledge-based Clinical Decision Support Systems (k-CDSS) as aids. We propose to follow a reasoning over domain approach for the generation of decision recommendations, by gathering and inferring conclusions from production rules. In order to rationalize our approach we present a specification that will sustain the logic models supported in the Knowledge Bases we use for persistence. We introduce first the underlying knowledge model and then the necessary extensions that will convey towards the solution of the reported needs. The starting point of our approach is the work of Toro et al. [13] on Reflexive Ontologies (RO). We also propose an extension of RO, by including the handling and reasoning that production rules provide. Our approach speeds-up the recommendation generation process.

Clinical Decision Support Systems (CDSS) are active knowledge resources that use patient data to generate case specific advice. The fast pace of change of clinical knowledge imposes to CDSS the continuous update of the domain knowledge and decision criteria. Traditional approaches require costly tedious manual maintenance of the CDSS knowledge bases and repositories. Often, such an effort cannot be assumed by medical teams, hence maintenance is often faulty. In this paper, we propose a (semi-)automatic update process of the underlying knowledge bases and decision criteria of CDSS, following a learning paradigm based on previous experiences, such as the continuous learning that clinicians carry out in real life. In this process clinical decisional events are acquired and formalized inside the system by the use of the SOEKS and Decisional DNA experiential knowledge representation techniques. We propose three algorithms processing clinical experience to: (a) provide a weighting of the different decision criteria, (b) obtain their fine-tuning, and (c) achieve the formalization of new decision criteria. Finally, we present an implementation instance of a CDSS for the domain of breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

This article reviews research work on set of experience knowledge structure (SOEKS)-decisional DNA (DDNA) done in the past, ongoing, and planned for the future. Firstly, the concept of the knowledge representation technique of SOEKS-DDNA is discussed, and then an attempt is made to organize the past research related with it in chronological order. This work focuses on the review on SOEKS-DDNA, its application in different domains, the various implementation platforms, as well as its benefits and its limitations. The second part of this article provides an idea of the SOEKS-DDNA-related research endeavors currently carried out by us and the last part is a sneak peek into our planned future work. © 2014 Copyright Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

Ontology processing is arguably a time-consuming process with high associated computational costs. Query actions constitute a crucial part of the reasoning process and are a primary source of time consumption. Reflexive ontologies (ROs) is a novel approach intended to reduce time consumption problems while providing a fast reaction from ontology-based applications. In this article we present the implementation of a knowledge-based clinical decision support system (CDSS) for the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease, which was the benchmark used to evaluate the impact of RO in the overall performance of the system. The implementation details and the definition of the implementation methodology are exposed in this article, along with the results of the evaluation. Some novel techniques that aim to optimize the performance of ROs are also presented with highlights of the test application introduced in our previous work. © 2013 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

In this article, we present a concept and case study of a novel approach that generates a television (TV) user's profile utilizing principles of fuzzy logic. A user profile refers to the user's basic information, such as gender, age, and profession. The generated profile has the potential to significantly improve Digital TV (DTV), making the service smarter and more user friendly. We apply the proposed approach to our previous work that introduced decisional DNA TV, which enables TV broadcasters to suggest program choices based upon the user's past viewing habits. Decisional DNA is a domain-independent, flexible, and standard experiential knowledge repository solution that allows for knowledge to be acquired, reused, evolved, and shared in an easy and portable way. The presented conceptual approach demonstrates how fuzzy logic methods can be deployed within DNA TV through an experimental implementation that generates a user profile by capturing viewing habits. © 2013 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

The aim of the latest issue of the Cybernetics and Systems journal is to provide guidelines to develop tools for smart processing of knowledge and information. It gives ideas and case studies to explore and the complexities and challenges of modern knowledge management issues. It also encourages the reader to become aware of the multifaceted interdisciplinary character of such issues. The preview of this issue is that the reader will leave it with a heightened ability to think about developing, evaluating implementing, and supporting intelligent knowledge- and information-based management systems in real-life environments in different ways. This Guest Edition is based on some significant contributions provided by one of the most dynamic and innovative conference series in the area, held in Spain in 2012. A paper entitled 'A Hybrid Method for Fuzzy Ontology Integration', introduces a novel concept of combining heuristics and consensus-based conflict resolution for fuzzy ontology integration.

Nowadays, knowledge-based embedded systems have become a new trend on embedded systems. They are capable of knowledge acquisition, reusing, evolving and sharing. However, due to the lack of standardized solutions and development platforms, it is not only very hard to share knowledge among different knowledge-based embedded systems, but this also causes huge waste by redesign, redevelopment, and knowledge re-acquiring. In this paper, we propose the Decisional DNA-based Embedded Systems as a new approach to meet this demand. Decisional DNA is a domain-independent, flexible and standard knowledge representation structure. We apply Decisional DNA to embedded systems to make them acquire, reuse, evolve and share knowledge in an easy and standard way. As a result, we propose the features, architecture and application types for the embedded systems.

The E-Decisional Community is a proposal that aims at enabling knowledge sharing between individuals and organizations, using the Set of Experience Knowledge Structure (SOEKS) and Decisional DNA as knowledge representations; it is based upon principles from Software Agents, Grid and Cloud computing. In this paper, we present an analysis of different agent communication and knowledge representation languages, with the purpose of defining a set of basic mechanisms to be used in the E-Decisional Community for knowledge exchange between its members.

Virtual Engineering (VE) is defined as the integration of geometric models and related engineering tools (such as analysis, simulation, optimization and decision-making, etc), within a computerized environment that facilitates multidisciplinary and collaborative product development [1]. The focus of Virtual Engineering is to engage the human capacity for evaluation of complex systems and situations [2]. In this article, we present an architecture for the Semantic enhancement of Virtual Engineering Applications (VEA) through their embedded Virtual Engineering Tools. Our architecture follows a User-Intention-Domain schema and makes use of state of the art technologies like the Set of Experience Knowledge Structure and the Reflexive Ontologies in order to offer a better User experience with VEA. The main advantages of using Semantics in VEA can be summarized are: (i) an improved information and embedded Knowledge management, (ii) Enhancements in the search, knowledge and information sharing processes during the use of the VEA, (iii) The use of the intrinsic Knowledge embedded in the elements being described by the VEA and (iv) the empowerment of the User's knowledge and embedding of such knowledge in a structured and explicit conceptualization. © 2009 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

Knowledge engineering techniques are becoming useful and popular components of hybrid integrated systems used to solve complicated practical problems in different disciplines. Knowledge engineering techniques offer features such as: learning from experience, handling noisy and incomplete data, helping with decision making, and predicting. This chapter presents the application of a knowledge structure to different fields of study by constructing Decisional DNA. Decisional DNA, as a knowledge representation structure, offers great possibilities on gathering explicit knowledge of formal decision events as well as a tool for decision making processes. Its versatility is shown in this chapter when applied to decisional domains in finances and energy. The main advantages of using the Decisional DNA rely on: (i) versatility and dynamicity of the knowledge structure, (ii) storage of day-to-day explicit experience in a single structure, (iii) transportability and share ability of the knowledge, and (iv) predicting capabilities based on the collected experience. Thus, after showing the results, we conclude that the Decisional DNA, as a unique structure, can be applied to multi-domain systems while enhancing predicting capabilities and facilitating knowledge engineering processes inside decision making systems. © 2009 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

Concurrent engineering is gaining strong interest in industry. It can achieve what traditional engineering systems cannot: reduction in time and money needed for product design and manufacture. However, the concurrent strategy that considers a number of different life-cycle attributes might increase the complexity of the design process and make it more difficult to plan and manage. This paper proposes a methodology for the use of a multi-agent distributed system as the core logic in developing a planning system for a concurrent product design environment. It discusses both a framework and multi-agent architectural model necessary to implement a workable multi-agent system for product development.

In concurrent engineering (CE), an attempt is made to perform design activities simultaneously rather than in series as in the case of traditional design processes. The theoretical benefits of this concurrent approach are a reduction of the duration of the design project, cost savings, and better quality of the final design. Practical implementations of CE in industry indicate that successfully managing the CE design process to achieve these goals will require advanced techniques and tools. A framework for a multiagent distributed system that supports analysis, planning and scheduling in order to provide coordination and control of the design process in a CE design environment is proposed. The ultimate goal of the envisaged framework is to provide engineering management with a design process planning software application which utilizes multiagent distributed systems (MADS) integrated to other knowledge sources (agents) by means of a blackboard-based architecture.

In this paper, we propose a novel approach, the Experience-Oriented Smart Things that allows experiential knowledge discovery, storage, involving, and sharing for Internet of Things. The main features, architecture, and initial experiments of this approach are introduced. Rather than take all the data produced by Internet of Things, this approach focuses on acquiring only interesting data for its knowledge discovery process. By catching decision events, this approach gathers its own daily operation experience, which is the interesting data, and uses such experience for knowledge discovery. An initial experiment was made at the end of this paper, by applying this approach to a sensors-equipped bicycle, the bicycle is able to learn user¿s physical features and recognize its user out of other riders. Customized version of Decisional DNA is used in this approach as the knowledge representation technique. Decisional DNA is a domain-independent, and flexible, and standard experiential knowledge repository solution that allows knowledge to be acquired, reused, evolved and shared easily. The presented conceptual approach demonstrates how knowledge can be discovered through its domain¿s experiences and stored as Decisional DNA.
