KIC IT department conducted a workshop that introduced the students to Expert Systems.
The workshop was led by Dr. Samar Mouti, KIC Assistant professor, IT Department. Expert Systems (ES) are examples of particular applications of Artificial Intelligence. They are computer programs aiming to model human expertise in one or more specific knowledge areas. They usually consist of three basic components: a knowledge database with facts and rules representing human knowledge and experience; an inference engine processing consultation and determining how inferences are being made, and an input/output interface for interactions with the user.
Workshop attendees learned about the Expert System (ES), its architecture, and applications. Students also learned building and implementation of Expert Systems using Python programming language.
Thirteen students attended the workshop and reported high levels of satisfaction in terms of learned concepts and in-class engagement.
