A knowledge-based expert system for EIA using blackboard approach


Jazzar, Moneef Mohammad Abdel-Kareem and Daud, Mohamed and Bardaie, Mohd Zohadie and Ramli, Abd Rahman and Said, Salim (1998) A knowledge-based expert system for EIA using blackboard approach. Malaysian Journal of Computer Science, 11 (2). pp. 15-22. ISSN 0127-9084


Expert systems and knowledge-based systems are widely used in engineering applications and in problem-solving. Rapid development today has brought with it environmental problems that cause loss or destruction of natural resources. Environmental impact assessment (EIA) has been acknowledged as a powerful planning and decision-making tool to assess new development projects. It requires qualified personnel with special expertise and responsibility in their domain. Knowledge-based EIA systems incorporate expert’s knowledge and act as a device-giving system. The development of an expert system to produce environmental impact assessment reports using an intelligent blackboard co-operative approach is presented. The system has an advantage over human experts and can significantly reduce the complexity of a planning task like EIA.
