Paper Abstract

Expert systems are exciting for primarily two reasons: first they are generally useful, practical programs that fulfil an actual need; and second they are available. These are the reasons that they constitute most of AI's practical and commercial success /19/. At their best, expert systems may be as helpful as having an expert consultant right there /2/. Expert systems are computer software that can function as a consultant, providing guidance advice and assistance in decision making, handling automation of human's ability in sharply defined and delineated regions. In this sense it is possible to replace a human expert by an expert system /3/. Because human expertise is rare and expansive expert systems are needed /18/.
