What is a production system?

by Stephen M. Walker II, Co-Founder / CEO

Overview of Production Systems in AI

Production systems in artificial intelligence (AI) consist of rules that guide the creation of programs capable of problem-solving. These systems are structured around production rules, each with a condition and corresponding action. When a condition is met, the action is executed, allowing the system to progress towards a solution.

These systems are integral to various AI applications, including expert systems, natural language processing, and machine learning. By utilizing a knowledge base, an inference engine, working memory, and a control strategy, production systems can autonomously make decisions and perform complex tasks.

For instance, in robotics, a production system might direct a robot to turn left at a junction if there's an obstacle ahead. This flexibility and adaptability make production systems suitable for dynamic environments and complex decision-making processes.

The use of production systems in AI offers several advantages. They enable the creation of intelligent agents that can independently reason and make decisions. They are foundational in developing expert systems that provide solutions in specialized fields such as medicine, engineering, and finance. Additionally, they support decision-making in decision support systems, which aid humans in various sectors, including marketing and operations.

Expert systems and natural language processing are prominent examples of production systems' applications. Expert systems leverage a database of rules and facts to make informed decisions within a specific area, while natural language processing allows computers to interpret and respond to human language.
