Expert System Shells


ACQUIRE

A knowledge acquisition and expert system development tool. Knowledge is
represented by production rules and pattern
-
based action tables. ACQUIRE does not
require special training in building expert sy
stems. A domain expert can create a
knowledge base and develop applications without help from the knowledge engineer.

-
based object
-
oriented expert systems.
Advisor has two components:
Advisor Builder

(a development tool with visual editors,
powerful debugging facilities and w
izards, which integrate rule
-
based applications
with databases, Java objects and COBRA objects) and
Advisor Engine

(a high
performance inference engine). Advisor includes mechanisms for servicing
simultaneous users, scheduling deployments, performing dyna
mic load balancing, and
reducing memory requirements.

An expert system development tool for converting complex decision
-
making processes
into a form that can be incorporated into a Web page. CORVID is based on the Visual
Basic model and provides an object
-
oriented struct
ure. It also uses logic blocks


supersets of rules and trees, which can be run via forward or backward chaining.
CORVID applications are delivered via a small Java applet that allows robust interface
design options.

-
based expert system toolkit. Supports frame
-
based reasoning with
inheritance, rule
-
based programming and data
-
driven
procedures. Flex has its own
English
-
like Knowledge Specification Language (KSL). The main structures in Flex
are frames and instances with slots for organising objects, default and current values
for storing data, demons and constraints for adding funct
ionality to slot values, rules
and relations for expressing knowledge and expertise, functions and actions for
defining imperative processes, and questions and answers for end
-
user interaction. The
KSL supports mathematical, Boolean and conditional express
ions.

-
oriented, graphical environment for the development and on
-
line
deployment of intelligent systems. Objects are organised in hierarchical classes with

JESS

The Java Expert System Shell (JESS) is available as a free download (including its
complete Java source code) from Sandia National L
aboratories. JESS was originally
inspired by CLIPS (C Language Integrated Production System), but has grown into a
complete tool of its own. The JESS language is still compatible with CLIPS


JESS
scripts are valid CLIPS scripts and vice
-
versa. JESS add
s many features to CLIPS,
including backward chaining and the ability to manipulate and directly reason about
Java objects. Despite being implemented in Java, JESS runs faster than CLIPS.

XMaster

The system consists of two basic packages:
XMaster Developer
and
XMaster User
.
Using
XMaster Developer
the user creates a knowledge base simply by building up a
list of possible
hypotheses
and a list of
items of evidence
. The

items of evidence are
then associated with the relevant hypotheses.
XMaster

also enables the user to
incorporate uncertain or approximate relationships into the knowledge base and uses
Bayesian reasoning for managing uncertainties.

XpertRule

A tool for developing rule
-
based expert systems. Domain knowledge is represented by
decision tre
es, examples, truth tables and exception trees. Decision trees are the main
knowledge representation method. Examples relate outcomes to attributes. A truth
table is an extension to examples


it represents a set of examples covering every
possible comb
ination of cases. From examples, truth tables and exception trees,
XpertRule automatically generates a decision tree. XpertRule also uses fuzzy
reasoning, which can be integrated with crisp reasoning and with GA optimisation.

Fuzzy Logic Tools


CubiCalc

A software tool for creating and using fuzzy rules. With CubiCalc, the user can write
English
-
like IF
-
THEN rules and use a graphical editor to define fuzzy sets. The user
can then apply the rules to hi
s/her data or use them in a simulated dynamic scenario.
CubiCalc is particularly useful for rapid prototyping. No programming is needed to
set up plots, numeric displays, input and output data files, and interactive data entry
windows.

FIDE

The Fuzzy Inference Development Environment (FIDE) is a complete environment for
the development of a fuzzy system. It supports all phases of the development process,
from the concept to the implementation. FIDE serves as the

developer’s guide in
creating a fuzzy controller, including its implementation as a software or hardware
solution. Hardware solutions are realised in the Motorola microcontroller units; the
code is generated automatically. FIDE also supports C code by c
reating ANSI C code
for a fuzzy inference unit.

FLINT

Th
e Fuzzy Logic INferencing Toolkit (FLINT) is a versatile fuzzy logic inference
system that makes fuzzy rules available within a sophisticated programming
environment. FLINT supports the concepts of fuzzy variables, fuzzy qualifiers and
fuzzy modifiers (li

uncluttered syntax. Furthermore, they can be grouped into matrices, commonly known
as fuzzy associative memory (FAM). FLINT provides a comprehensive set of
facilities for programmers to constru
ct fuzzy expert systems and decision support
applications on all LPA
-
supported hardware and software platforms.

FuzzyCLIPS

FuzzyCLIPS is an extension of the CLIPS (C Language Integrated Production System)
from NASA, which ha
s been widely distributed for a number of years. It enhances
CLIPS by providing a fuzzy reasoning capability such that the user can represent and
manipulate fuzzy facts and rules. FuzzyCLIPS can deal with exact, fuzzy, and
combined reasoning, allowing fu
zzy and normal terms to be freely mixed in the rules
and facts of an expert system. The system uses two basic inexact concepts, fuzziness
and uncertainty. FuzzyCLIPS is available as a free download.

Saxon

Offers solutions to prediction problems by using ASCII, Excel or dBase data files or
from ODBC access. The user’s only task is to tell Saxon which variable in the data set
is to be predicted
-

everything else is automatic. SaxV
iew lets the user visualise the
actual data or randomly generated examples, and their associated predictions. Saxon
4.3 and 7 data sets are available as free downloads.
