Senior Project - Pro:-Prover.


A Prolog Program to Extract Rules from Data

Senior Project: 1987-1988
Amelia-Ann (Ames) Read and Tyler Stevens
Information Systems
Denver, CO

Part of the work in building an expert system is the translation of the knowledge of an expert into code that reflects that knowledge in the implementation language. This project, written in Prolog, allowed for the simple tabular entry of rules by the expert, and through the use of Quinlan's ID3 algorithm produced an optimal set of decision trees that represented the expert's knowledge. These decision trees were then used to automatically generate a Prolog program that could be used as a component of an expert system.
