Expert Systems: State of the Art and Future Prospects

  • Peter Raulefs
Conference paper
Part of the Informatik-Fachberichte book series (INFORMATIK, volume 47)


Knowledge-based systems, and expert systems in particular, have recently. gained significant economic and scientific importance because of
  • a rapidly increasing demand for expert consultancy.

  • tremendous cost reductions following the mechanization of expertise otherwise only available from highly trained specialists.

  • accomplishments of advanced expert systems.
