Using Software Visualization Technology in the validation of Knowledge Based Systems
The validation of a Knowledge Based System (KBS) involves comparisons between an external reference model and a system's component parts. In this paper I describe how such comparisons can be aided by the application of software visualization technology. Software visualization is the use of filmcraft, cartoon animation and graphic design techniques to display data structures, programs, and algorithms. The described approach eases the task of mapping between the comparates by the use of dynamic code, problem solving architecture, and domain oriented visualizations of KBS execution.
