Can we employ the emerging web technologies to transform expert systems technology so that it can be more readily harnessed for the development of Knowledge Management Agents (KMA)? This paper outlines how web technologies can be combined with an expert system shell to provide the platform for the development of KMA. To demonstrate the applicability of such a platform, a sample inter-organizational credential-analysis system is developed. Implications of combining these two technologies in the creation of web-based KMAs, and the platform’s potential applications are then presented.
