About the book
Expert systems are the branch of artificial intelligence dealing with utilizing human expertise for solving problems. They are defined as computer systems that are capable of solving problems in the same way as a human expert would do when they face the same problem. With the current stream of digital transportation and an enormous amount of interest in intelligent systems, they will be a potential area of research for providing better intelligence to systems. They will also motivate the researchers to generate systems with more and more expertise. In this book, a general introduction to expert systems will be provided after a brief introduction to Artificial Intelligence. Detailed information about Expert Systems will be defined concerning their basic features and architectures as well as main characteristics and basic differences from traditional computer systems. Various applications of expert systems will also be provided. Potential readers will find both theoretical progress as well as practical applications. They will find a great amount of information to ease their research and implementation of intelligent systems.
