Knowledge Based Systems

Systems that combine a data repository (often in this context called a "knowledge base") and inference mechanisms to deliver results that appeared to demonstrate artificial intelligence.

This term was popular during the 1980s and since then has declined in use.

The data repository would commonly incorporate information about objects and their relationships that effectively implemented a complete ontology (within the domain of interest).

Often implemented as a blackboard with the knowledge base storing the current "best understanding" and the various inference rules each being triggered to extend from the known to the interesting.
