We present Valens (VALid ENgineering Support), a tool for the validation and verification (V&V) of a knowledgebase (KBS). Validation techniques become more and more important when knowledge based systems are widely used to automate business critical processes. The tool we present can be used during and after the development of a KBS and focuses on the logical verification of the KBS. The techniques used to verify a KBS are MetaRules, an Inference Engine to verify hypotheses posted by MetaRules (proof by processing) and MetaInformation.
Keywords: Verification, Validation, RuleBased Knowledgebases
