A Tool for Automatic Creation of Rule-Based Expert Systems with CFs

Abstract : This paper introduces a tool, namely ACRES (Automatic CReator of Expert Systems), which can automatically produce rule-based expert systems as CLIPS scripts from a dataset containing knowledge about a problem domain in the form of a large number of cases. The rules are created via a simple systematic approach and make use of certainty factors (CFs). CFs of same conclusions can be combined either using the MYCIN method or a generalization of MYCIN's method. This latter method requires calculation of some weights, based on a training dataset, via the use of a genetic algorithm. Creation of an expert system is outlined. Small scale experimental results comparing the above methods with each other and a neural network are finally presented.
