Using Prolog’s Inference Engine

  • Dennis Merritt
Part of the Springer Compass International book series (COMPASS)


Prolog has a built-in backward chaining inference engine which can be used to partially implement some expert systems. Prolog rules are used for the knowledge representation, and the Prolog inference engine is used to derive conclusions. Other portions of the system, such as the user interface, must be coded using Prolog as a programming language.
