An Integrated Expert-System Builder
November/December 1989 (vol. 6 no. 6)
pp. 44-52

The Expert System Builder, an AI tool kit implemented in Common Lisp on Symbolics workstations within ESPRIT Project 96 is described. The Expert System Builder system is intended to industrialize the process of building expert systems by providing developers with several powerful modeling and architectural facilities not found in most AI tool kits. To reach this goal, support for knowledge modularization and reusability were included in the system. The process of knowledge transfer is examined, as well as reasoning and control in the system. The Expert System Builder's concept system, model system, and building method are discussed. An example is given to illustrate its use.
