A multiple domain expert system for beef cattle farmers

, : A multiple domain expert system for beef cattle farmers. Computers & Electronics In Agriculture. 6(2): 143-156

This paper describes the development of an expert system designed to advise on management strategies for beef cattle farmers who wish to improve their production systems. This task requires an integration of knowledge from a number of overlapping domains including cattle breeding, pasture improvement and pasture quality. We describe our approach to the problem of providing advice from more than one domain of expertise. We propose that by developing separate modules for each domain, using consistent terminology in all modules, and identifying where communication with another module is required, it is possible to develop an integrated multiple domain expert system.

The steam reforming of benzene as a model compound of biomass gasification tar was carried out over various Ni/metal oxide catalysts. The effects of the support, temperature, Ni-precursor, Ni loading and reaction time were examined, and their cata...

Rheumatoid arthritis culminates in joint destruction that, in mouse models of disease, is supported by innate immune molecules, including Fcγ receptors (FcγR) and complement. However, these findings may not be predictive of the outcome in humans...

Background: Restenosis and consequent adverse cardiac events are increased in diabetics undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention. Use of intracoronary stents may ameliorate such risks; however, factors influencing the likelihood of restenosis...
