Production systems
Production Systems

  • ‘It’s a set of syntactic and semantic conventions that make it possible to describe things’.

  • Syntax – Set of rules for combining symbols and arrangements of symbols to form expression in a representational language.

  • Semantic – Specifies how constructed expressions should be interpreted.


Production rules
Production Rules

  • Consists of premise-action pairs, for example

  • P’s – are called conditions or ‘left-hand side’

  • Q’s – are called conclusions or ‘right-hand side’

  • Working Memory (WM): It is to hold data, often in the form of object-attribute-value triples.


The behavior of the interpreter inference engine
The Behavior of the Interpreter/Inference Engine

Interpreter or inference engine for a set of production rules can be described in term of ‘recognize-act cycle’.

  • Match the calling patterns of rules against elements in working memory.

  • If there is more than one rule that could fire, then decide which one to apply; this is called ‘conflict resolution’.

  • Apply the rule, perhaps adding a new item to WM or deleting an old one, and then go to step (1).


Forward chaining
Forward Chaining

  • At the Global level of control, production rules are driven forward.

  • Chains forward from condition that we know to be true, towards conclusions which the facts allow us to establish, by matching data in working memory against the left-hand sides of the rules.

  • The mode of chaining describes the way rules are activated by matching WM elements.

Blue DRAGON

  • Analyzes Minimal Invasive (MIS) surgical tasks into primary elements.

  • Kinematics and dynamics of left & right endoscopic tools along with visual surgical scene is used as input to derive model.

  • Decomposed surgical model consists of 30 fully connected finite states Markov model. And its equivalent grammar.

  • Objective learning curve is defined for expert surgeon and trainee using a scoring function (MM). Evaluation is based on distance between the two.

Parallel implementation of rule based expert system
Parallel Implementation of Rule-Based Expert System

  • Or- parallelism: Each rule, whose head unifies with a fact, can be solved in parallel.

  • And-parallelism: Processes execute in parallel to solve each clause of the body.

  • Conflict resolution is the bottle-neck for parallel execution.

  • Rule Based system is described by following attributes


Knowledge base organization
Knowledge Base Organization

  • Uses AND/OR graph formalism for the knowledge network

  • Rules and parameters are organized to form a knowledge network.

Knowledge Network


Implementation on shared memory mimd machine
Implementation on shared memory MIMD machine

  • Implemented using tables, markers and message broadcasting.

  • Only forward chaining is used in the inference process.

  • Shared memory is divided into number of banks

  • Each parameter is stored in memory bank and rule is loaded into one processor.

  • Rules and parameters do not migrate to other processors and memory banks during execution.


Implementation on shared memory mimd machine contd
Implementation on shared memory MIMD machine (Contd.)

  • Knowledge network is implemented through message broadcasting

  • Execute the actions of the rule being fired

  • If the execution of an action changes the value of parameter, then the processor broadcasts a message, containing parameter-id, to the bus.

  • Processor enters critical section to change value of the parameter.

  • Processor resets the variable counter for the rule to 1.

  • Pickup message broadcasted and update the local parameter values.


Rule base partitioning and allocation
Rule base partitioning and allocation

  • Each input parameter is associated with probability for the relative frequency that appears in lth position in input sequence

  • Use and to denote numerical values (min and max) with rule and the parameter

  • min/max equations for input and rules are written in matrix form

  • In iteration step is computed first followed by


Algorithm of partitioning rules for parallel execution
Algorithm of partitioning rules for parallel execution

  • It’s a greedy algorithm

  • Produces good but not necessarily optimal rule assignment to multiprocessors

  • Cost of rule assignment

  • Problem of partitioning and assigning rules to minimize cost C(RA) is NP-complete.


Allocating parameter to memory banks
Allocating parameter to memory banks

  • Algorithm to allocate memory banks such that they do not cause many memory access conflicts when executed in parallel.

  • Problem of allocating parameter to memory banks to minimize the reference cost is NP-complete and developed algorithm has time complexity of


Parallel tools for implementing expert system
Parallel tools for implementing Expert System

  • MultiLisp –  interpreter written in Fortran and ported to C  extended with constructs for parallel execution and shared memory.

  • Brain Aid Prolog –  a parallel PROLOG environment for Transputer systems of 1-512 processors.

  • BeBOP – language combines sequential and parallel Logic Programming (LP), object oriented programming and meta-level programming.

  • Multi-BinProlog –Linda-style parallel extension to BinProlog.
