Introduction to Expert Systems, 3rd Edition, Jackson P., Addison Wesley

  • This third edition of Peter Jackson’s best-selling book updates the technological base of expert systems research and embeds those developments in a wide variety of application areas. The earlier chapters have been refocused to take a more practical approach to the basic topics, while the later chapters introduce new topic areas such as case-based reasoning, connectionist systems and hybrid systems. Results in related areas, such as machine learning and reasoning with uncertainty, are also accorded a thorough treatment. The new edition contains many new examples and exercises, most of which are in CLIPS, a language that combines production rules with object-oriented programming. LISP, PROLOG and C++ are also featured where appropriate. Interesting problems are posed throughout, and are solved in exercises involving the analysis, design and implementation of CLIPS programs.

Intelligent Systems for Engineers and Scientists, 3rd Edition, Adrian A. Hopgood

  • The book examines the principles of artificial intelligence and their application to engineering and science, as well as techniques for developing intelligent systems to solve practical problems. Covering the full spectrum of intelligent systems techniques, it incorporates knowledge-based systems, computational intelligence, and their hybrids. New edition includes expanded and separated chapters on genetic algorithms and single-candidate optimization techniques, while the chapter on neural networks now covers spiking networks and a range of recurrent networks. The book also provides extended coverage of fuzzy logic, including type-2 and fuzzy control systems. Example programs using rules and uncertainty are presented in an industry-standard format, so that you can run them yourself.

Fuzzy Expert Systems and Fuzzy Reasoning, 1st Edition, 2004, Willian Siler, James J. Buckley

  • This book presents how to actually write and debug fuzzy expert systems. Coverage is accessible to practitioners and academic readers alike.
  • Topics: fuzzy logic, fuzzy set theory, rule-based expert systems, FLOPS system language
