1984

Abstract

Knowledge based expert systems have been developed in the last decade for many different applications by adopting artificial intelligence techniques. The paper discusses the main characteristics of the expert systems devoted to medical diagnosis (knowledge representation, explanation capability, inexact reasoning) and addresses some of the limitations (mainly system validation and knowledge acquisition). Finally the paper sketches the overall organization of an expert system devoted to the evaluation of liver function.
