Abstract

The acquisition of knowledge from experts is nowadays the most demanding activity in the construction of expert systems. Hence the effort for its automation [5,11] follows. In 1984–86 we developed the ESOD expert system shell [7,8,12], in which the knowledge base is acquired automatically from observational data.
