These include expert systems (or knowledge based systems), truth (or reason) maintenance systems, case based reasoning systems, and inductive approaches like decision trees, neural networks (or connectionist systems), and statistical pattern classification systems. Each of these approaches is demonstrated through the design of a system for a simple automobile fault diagnosis task. The paper also discusses the domain characteristics that influence the choice of a specific technique (or combination of techniques) for a given application.
