Knowledge-based system

A Knowledge-based system (KBS) is a computer program that reasons and uses knowledge to solve complex problems. Knowledge is acquired and represented using various knowledge representation techniques rules, frames and scripts. The basic advantages offered by such system are documentation of knowledge, decision support, self-learning, reasoning and explanation.

KBSs are systems based on the methods and techniques of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Their core components are:

KBS goes beyond decision support by introducing Expert System (ES) technology into the decision making framework . Typically, knowledged codifications use rules like IF-THEN rules to represent logical implications.

While for some authors expert systems, case-based reasoning systems and neural networks are all particular types of knowledge-based systems, there are others who consider that neural networks are different, and exclude it from this category.
