Paper Abstract

The original expert systems for the most part were handcrafted directly, using various dialects of the LISP programming language. The inference and knowledge representation components of these systems can be separated from the domain-specific portion of the expert system and can be used again for an entirely different task. Some of these tools, generically called shells, are discussed. Although these shells provide help in building knowledge-based systems, considerable skill in artificial intelligence programming is still necessary to create an expert system that accomplishes a nontrivial task.
