Case-Based Expert Systems
In this chapter, we will introduce case-based expert systems, an example of the Artificial Intelligence branch of our Autonomous Learning taxonomy. There are two broad classes of expert systems, rule-based and case-based. Rule-based systems have a set of rules that are applied to come to a decision; they are just a more organized way of writing decision statements in computer code. These systems provide a way of automating the process when decision-making involves hundreds or thousands of rules. Case-based systems decide by example, that is, a set of predefined cases.
