Abstract

See full text

The present invention provides a computer implemented method for maintaining a knowledge base. The method taking as input, text examples that are tagged with a structural markup language; and maps knowledge nodes in the knowledge base with the tagged examples to determine: (1) the knowledge nodes that best match the tagged examples, and (2) the knowledge nodes that are best connected to the tagged examples. The results are displayed to the user, who verifies that the tagged examples match the selected knowledge nodes. Based on the user response, indices of the knowledge nodes are updated. The method may further include determining discrepancies between the existing knowledge base and the tagged examples, and further displaying the discrepancies to the user. The user can update the missing information in the knowledge base to remove the discrepancies in the existing knowledge base.
