The HPKB programme aims to enable the development of very large knowledge bases which are comprehensive, reusable, maintainable, and address areas of interest to DARPA. These knowledge bases are expected to require foundation knowledge, knowledge acquisition facilities, and efficient problem solving techniques. The programme encourages development of multiple applications which will be tested against “challenge problems” at the end of each year of the programme.
