Inference Engines


Inference engines, also known as provers, reasoners, or solvers, are a primary component of expert systems, which are computer-based systems that mimic the decision-making abilities of a human expert in a specific domain. Expert systems typically consist of two main components: a knowledgebase and an inference engine.

The knowledgebase is a collection of facts and rules about a specific domain of expertise, such as medicine, engineering, or finance. It is used to store the expert’s knowledge and experience about the domain and to represent the relationships between different concepts.

The inference engine is the part of the expert system that uses the knowledgebase to make decisions or to solve problems. It is responsible for reasoning about the knowledgebase and applying the rules and facts stored in the knowledgebase to a specific problem or question. Inference engines use a variety of algorithms and techniques, such as rule-based systems, decision trees, and artificial neural networks, to analyze the knowledgebase and make inferences or conclusions based on the available data.

Expert systems are used in a wide range of applications, including decision support, diagnosis, and problem-solving, and can be used to automate and augment the decision-making abilities of human experts in a variety of domains.
