Part of the Robot Technology book series (RT, volume 6)


So far, mention has been made of knowledge representation and derivation systems, commonly known as ‘formal logic’, and this is detailed in Chapter 8.


Expert System Fact Base Rule Base Pattern Match Production Rule 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
