Abstract:

MRS is a knowledge representation system intended for use by AI researchers in building expert systems. It offers a diverse repertory of commands for asserting and retrieving information, with various inference techniques e.g. backward and forward chaining and various search strategies e.g. depth-first, breadth-first, and best-first search. The initial system includes a vocabulary of concepts and facts about logic, sets, mappings, arithmetic, and procedures.. Additional plug-in modules are available to handle contexts, default reasoning, and truth maintenance. There is a rudimentary compiler to eliminate needless meta-level processing and a meta-level consistency checker to protect the user from fata errors in making system modifications. Author
