Abductive Thinking (Ideal Generation, Inspiration) Support Systems
Our research currently focuses on creative thinking support systems, groupwares, and knowledge-based systems, e.g., brainstorming system, convergent thinking support system, group decision support system, real world workflow software, awareness support system, abductive and inductive logic programming, and legal expert system.
In Japan, there are several manual creation thinking techniques such as KJ method, NM method, and Equivalent Transformation theory. They are methods for getting new ideas from given data. By getting a hint from these techniques, we are now designing and implementing a new type of creative thinking support system, that is, a hybrid system with divergent thinking support function and convergent thinking support function.
Combining an appropriate system analysis methodology united with a system modelling methodology, we designed and implemented and a knowledge acquisition support groupware GRAPE. GRAPE ia a bottom-up type group decision support system. From the experience of developing GRAPE, we implemented new ideas of decision support groupwares. They include a QDA(Quality Deployment Approach) based requirement analysis system and a consensus-making support system with trade-off resolution functions.
