Expert systems are a form of advanced computer programming utilizing aspects of artificial intelligence to emulate the skills of an expert within a given field of knowledge. Low cost expert systems are now being used in business, and soon will be seen in some health professions. This article describes the basics of expert systems, and suggests possible applications in optometry.
