Title: Expert systems ''to go'': Laptop personal computers and knowledge-based software

Abstract

There are many instances in the everyday activities of many fields in which the physically small, lightweight, battery-powered laptop personal computer with appropriate knowledge-based software can be a highly beneficial tool. For example, in chemical engineering field work, the easily portable laptop personal computer with expert system programs can provide expert assistance in troubleshooting equipment, tuning controllers, and installing various components. Laptop personal computers fill a particular niche in the use of knowledge-based software; at the Oak Ridge facilities of the US Department of Energy, knowledge-based software is being used on a wide range of computers, including a Cray X-MP/12, Digital Equipment Corp., VAX 8700, VAX 8200, and VAXstations, Symbolics, Inc., 3640 LISP machines, many IBM PC's and compatibles, as well as laptop personal computers. Factors considered include expert system transfer from larger computers, program execution speed, memory capacity, and options for utilization of non-volatile memory storage. 46 refs.
