Coherent Knowledge Processing at Maximum Entropy by SPIRIT
Wilhelm Roedder, Carl-Heinz Meyer
SPIRIT is an expert system shell for probabilistic knowledge bases. Knowledge acquisition is performed by processing facts and rules on discrete variables in a rich syntax. The shell generates a probability distribution which respects all acquired facts and rules and which maximizes entropy. The user-friendly devices of SPIRIT to define variables, formulate rules and create the knowledge base are revealed in detail. Inductive learning is possible. Medium sized applications show the power of the system.
