Many expert systems are not complex or difficult to build. In a very simple case, consider a tree diagram on paper describing how to solve a problem. By making a selection at each branch point, the tree diagram can help someone make a decision. In a sense, it is a very simple expert system. This type of tree structured logic can easily be converted to a computerized system that is easier to use, faster and automated. More elaborate systems may include confidence factors allowing several possible solutions to be selected with different degrees of confidence. Expert system is an intelligent computer program that uses knowledge and inference procedures to solve problems that are difficult enough to require significant human expertise for their solution. Expert systems can explain why data is needed and how conclusions were reached. A system may be highly interactive (directly asking the user questions) or embedded where all input comes from another program. The range of problems that can be handled by expert systems is vast.
