CESD13 : Expert System Tools

The first module is on Expert System Tools, In this, We will cover the basics of Expert systems which will include fundamental knowledge. This is required to understand the Rule based and knowledge based expert system and its constituents, with hypothesis testing and rule derivation. Applied mathematical concepts will be taught, to understand designing Expert systems. The course will be accompanied by hands-on problem solving, with programming in Java. It also covers the tools like NNEasy, Joone and other important open source tools available.
