The evolution of artificial intelligence systems called by complicating of their operation topics and science perfecting has resulted in a diversification of the methods both the algorithms of knowledge representation and usage in these systems. Often by this reason it is very difficult to design the effective methods of knowledge discovering and operation for such systems.
In the given activity the authors offer a method of unitized representation of the systems knowledge about objects of an external world by rank transformation of their descriptions, made in the different features spaces: deterministic, probabilistic, fuzzy and other. The proof of a sufficiency of the information about the rank configuration of the object states in the features space for decision making is presented. It is shown that the geometrical and combinatorial model of the rank configurations set introduce their by group of some system of incidence, that allows to store the information on them in a convolute kind. The method of the rank configuration description by the DRP - code (distance rank preserving code) is offered. The problems of its completeness, information capacity, noise immunity and privacy are reviewed. It is shown, that the capacity of a transmission channel for such submission of the information is more than unit, as the code words contain the information both about the object states, and about the distance ranks between them. The effective algorithm of the data clustering for the object states identification, founded on the given code usage, is described. The knowledge representation with the help of the rank configurations allows to unitize and to simplify algorithms of the decision making by fulfillment of logic operations above the DRP - code words.
Examples of the proposed clustering techniques operation on the given samples set, the rank configuration of resulted clusters and its DRP-codes are presented.
