THE ROLE OF INFORMATION ENGINEERS IN RTRI

Information engineers in RTRI are now at a crossroads. For a long time, we have believed that the role of information engineers is "making a proposal" rather than "providing a product". However, we were told recently that making a proposal is unsatisfactory to prove our raison d'etre and we should provide products with practical value. In other words, "developing a practical system" would be preferable to "pursuing technical possibility". This paper gives a short history of information engineers in RTRI, an introduction of several practical systems which we have developed in past years and a perspective on the information engineer's activity in RTRI under these circumstances.
