Addison-Wesley, 1988, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good.

Reprint. [First: 1986] From the cover: “Expert systems are computing systems which embody organised knowledge of a specialized domain such as clinical diagnosis or geological prospecting. These expert (or knowledge-based) systems are now recognised as key elements in the computing systems of the future, and the most significant applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI). This book provides a lucid account of the principles and techniques for the development of expert systems. Starting with the early application of heuristic search techniques in DENDRAL, the three main techniques for knowledge representation (rules, frames, and logic) are considered in turn, with a detailed account of the expert systems which employ them. The systems described include MYCIN (and its derivatives TEIRESIAS and NEOMYCIN), CADUCEUS, RI, CENTAUR and MECHO. The final chapters look in detail at some more advanced topics, including knowledge acquisition and concept learning, explanation facilities, and expert system tools.”
