This paper has presented a knowledge based system (KBS) architecture which provides a framework for the implementation of complex information processing tasks. Both rule based and algorithmic knowledge operate upon a hierarchy of symbolic, propositional, numerical and image information in the interpretation of sonar data. This has allowed the application of KBS technology to multi-dimensional signal processing as well as to higher levels of inference and reasoning within a single framework. Current work is investigating use of the cell within less ambitious domains, to focus more on the resolution of architectural design issues. Hardware implementations are also under consideration, using innovative devices such as the INMOS T414/T8000 transputer.
