Applying inductive learning to enhance knowledge-based expert systems

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper describes the use of inductive learning in MARBLE, a knowledge-based expert system I have developed for assisting business loan evaluation. Inductive learning is the process of inferring classification concepts from raw data; I use this technique to generate loan-granting decision rules based on historical and proforma financial information. A learning method is presented in this paper that can induce decision rules from training examples.
