About the book

What are expert systems? What is their purpose? What are their potential practical applications? What kind of problems can they solve? With these questions in mind, this book has the primary concern of answering readers with different profiles, from those who are interested in acquiring knowledge about architectures of expert systems to those motivated by its multiple applications (of practical aspect) for solving real world problems. It explores different knowledge areas, such as engineering, computer science, mathematics, statistics and neurosciences. Regarding the academic approach of this book and its audience, the chapters intend to provide a fashion that attempts to discuss, step-by-step, the thematic concepts, covering a broad range of technical and theoretical information. Therefore, besides meeting the professional audience’s desire to begin or deepen their study on expert system and its potential applications, this book is also intended to be used as a textbook for undergraduate and graduate courses, which address the subject of expert systems on their syllabus.
