Expert Systems
In the past ten years research in the field of artificial intelligence has many important successes. One of the most significant has been the development of powerful expert or knowledge-based systems. In many world famous universities, the subject has already been treated as one of their core courses. We should of course attach importance to the subject in the making of our master training programme.
