90 An Introduction to Expert Systems An expert system is a knowledge-based information system; that is, it uses its knowledge ab0out a specific area to act as an expert consultant to users. The components of an expert system are a knowledge base and software modules that perform inferences on the knowledge and offer answers to a user’s questions. Expert systems provide answers to questions in a very specific problem area by making human like inferences about knowledge contained in a specialized… Expand
Inference-Guiding on Bayesian Knowledge-Based Systems
TLDR
Knowledge-based systems have been successfully used in numerous applications such as locating fuel deposits, designing complex computer systems, analyzing electronic circuits, diagnosing diseases, assisting driving vehicles, and doing the jobs that are dangerous to humans. Expand
SPEEDS: An Approach to Support Programming Environments Using Expert Database Systems
TLDR
An approach for building expert database systems to support programming environments and a prototype expert database system is developed for a typical programming environment at a classical music radio station that employs experts to select music. Expand
