``Development of Meta-Level Knowledge Base Systems for Integrating Cultural, Social, and Natural Sciences''

The most important objective of this study is to design and develop a meta-level knowledge base system for realizing a creative environment of new research fields by integrating information resources in cultural, social, and natural sciences. The meta-level knowledge base system realizes highly creative activities for human beings over various research fields by sharing, retrieving, editing and integrating databases through wide area computer networks. Knowledge sharing, semantic retrieving, editing and integrating for those databases are essentially important for creating new research fields dynamically over various research fields. In this study, we design and develop a meta-level knowledge base system and create an intelligent knowledge base environment for new research field creation with highly creative activities.
