Abstract

This paper discusses representation issues for second generation expert systems. It provides a simple conceptual architecture of a second generation expert system. The realization of the model into an actual system requires several decisions to be taken. In the paper we illustrate how this has been done for a prototype second generation expert system called CONCLAVE. We discuss how a structural model of a domain is used for reasoning and indexing of knowledge gained from experience.
