Knowledge Query and Manipulation Language
Jump to user comments
language, protocol, artificial intelligence (KQML) A
language and protocol, based on SGML, for exchanging
information and knowledge, proposed in 1993(?).
Work on KQML is led(?) by Tim Finin of the
University of Maryland Baltimore County, Lab for Advanced
Information Technology. It is part of the ARPA KnowledgeSharing Effort.
The KQML message format and protocol can be used to interact
with an intelligent system, either by an applicationprogram, or by another intelligent system. KQML's
"performatives" are operations that agents perform on each
other's knowledge and goal stores. Higher-level
interactions such as contract nets and negotiation are built
using these. KQML's "communication facilitators" coordinate
the interactions of other agents to support knowledge sharing.
