Summary of research activities

Håkansson's research is in knowledge based systems and knowledge management systems. The focus is supporting knowledge acquisition, knowledge modelling, programming and reengineering. Contributions include enhancing transparency for modelling and adjusting knowledge and reasoning strategies. The contrivance benefiting the users is promoting graphical representation and visualisation in the interface. Parts of the ideas are used in industry. Since 1997, Håkansson has been working with computer science research with application to human-computer interaction. The research areas are:
