Ph.D. in Computer Science, UCLA, 1981.
Advanced Information Systems
Studying systems that are built to function as part of a man-machine team. The part of the problem to be solved by the machine uses whatever techniques that are appropriate - Data Bases, Knowledge Based Systems, Hypermedia, Information Retrieval Systems, etc.... The part of the problem that is solved by the human being uses a hypermedia framework to aid the human being in managing the stored knowledge. The hypermedia paradigm is used also to smoothly integrate the formal (used by the machine) and informal (used by the human being) knowledge representations. A significant (sub) problem is how to develop Hypermedia applications, and how to integrate these applications in the framework described above. To address this issue, I have been developing the Object Oriented Hypermedia Design Methodology (OOHDM) . More information about my work, including online references about OOHDM are available in the OOHDM Wiki.
