This book combines coverage of expert systems theory with coverage of practical applications using CLIPS, an expert systems shell widely used in government, industry, and education. The first half of the book (Chapters 1-6) presents underlying theory, including knowledge representation, methods of inference, reasoning under uncertainty, and inexact reasoning (with fuzzy logic). The second half (Chapters 7-12) introduces readers to rule-based expert systems programming using the CLIPS programming language. Complete source code, reference manuals and example programs are provided on the bound-in CD-ROM, as well as papers from the virtual CLIPS conference run by the authors. The result is a self-contained book and CD-ROM package for computer science, engineering, and CIS/MIS students and professionals that provides the conceptual background and programming tools needed to understand and implement expert systems.
