Description: Managers use prescribed fire to accomplish a variety of resource objectives. The knowledge needed to design successful prescriptions is both quantitative and qualitative. Some of it is available through publications and computer programs, but much of the knowledge of expert practitioners has never been collected or published. An expert system being developed at the, Forest Service's Intermountain Fire Sciences Laboratory in Missoula, Montana, uses artificial intelligence programming techniques to integrate this diverse information, and interpret it for application, and to recognize skilled practitioners as an important source of knowledge. These artificial intelligence techniques include rule-based inference and frame-based inheritance.
