Course objectives
The course introduces students, in succession of the course Artificial Intelligence, into the issues of applications of artificial intelligence in the field of knowledge-based and expert systems.
Learning outcomes
Students will be able to:
- define basic terms like a finding, knowledge, their computer representation
- define terms knowledge-based and expert system
- describe the architecture and individual modules of the knowledge-based and expert system
- thoroughly describe the function of the inference engine, including the rule selection problem and heuristics
- explain the issue of quality, evaluation, and testing of the knowledge-based system
- be versed in the field of knowledge engineering
- apply the fuzzy approach in the development of the knowledge-based systems
