Abstract

This paper reviews the state of the art in model-based systems and qualitative reasoning, and considers where the field will be in 20 years time. It highlights six areas where developments in model-based systems in general, and in qualitative reasoning in particular, have the potential to provide significant computer-based help. The paper also examines where further technological developments might be needed in order to achieve these qualitative futures.
