Abstract

In this paper we describe a prototype implementation of the Context Interchange Network (CIN). The prototype is described in terms of a financial application. The CIN is designed to provide for the intelligent integration of contextually (i.e., semantically) heterogeneous data. The system uses explicit context knowledge representation and a context mediator to automatically detect conflicts and resolve them through context conversion. The network also allows for context explication; making it possible for a receiver of data to understand meaning of the information represented by the source data.
