Building in Triangles
Building in Triangles

This article explains how you can create a basic triangle build structure in the Rainbird Studio. It also gives you an example knowledge map to explore a basic triangle build structure inside the Rainbird Studio.

Rainbird is extremely effective at making decisions in the absence of data, and in situations in which the certainty of data is less than 100%.

To be able to make a decision involving missing data, Rainbird must be able to infer an outcome.

In order for Rainbird to be able to infer, we need to create a mechanism or pattern that enables Rainbird to reach an outcome via an alternative route.

One of the basic build structures in Rainbird is a “triangle”. The triangle structure is formed by three concepts.  In the example triangle built in this article, we have built a generic map that will infer a Solution to a Problem for a Person. The triangle build will have one main subject (Person) and one main object (Solution). The second object (Problem) allows us to infer for our main object (Solution).

Query and Results

The main query is built on the rule ‘should make use of’. The outcome of the query will be the Solution to the Problem the user selects at run-time.

Another type of triangle structure is possible. As shown in the figure below, the orientation of the relationship can change, involving building the structure differently to obtain a similar result.

Building the triangle's structure

Three string concepts, (a Person, a Problem and a Solution), form the basis of the triangle mechanism.

Next, we connect the concepts together with relationships. The relationship names are defined by the... (More)
