ISMAX

In the ISMAX project, Abacus applied AI to the problem of policy implementation.  ISMAX stands for "Industrial Security Manual Advisor and Expert System". Essentially, ISMAX is a "smart policy manual."  The problem ISMAX addresses specifically is the administration of the industrial security program within a company, which is something every defense contractor must deal with.  However, the concepts embodied in ISMAX have much broader application, and in fact apply to any program that must be administered according to set of written policies.  For example, Abacus has also looked at applying the same principles to the administration of policy in welfare programs.

In a program where a policy manual is required to be followed, the individual workers are expected to make decisions and take actions in accordance with the policy manual.  However, it is often the case that, in order to use the manual effectively for reference, the individual must already be an expert on the manual.  Manuals are organized topically, rather than by events.  Thus, to deal with any given event, the worker must know, in advance, what topics might contain policy relevant to that event.  ISMAX solves this problem.  ISMAX is an expert on the policy manual.  The user tells ISMAX what situation (event) he or she is trying to deal with, and ISMAX tells the user what actions are required and specifically what policy applies.  ISMAX has the additional capability of referring to a database, or asking the user pertinent questions about the situation so that it can select specifically what policy applies to the user's exact problem.
