An Overview of Knowledge Representation Techniques

Authors(2) :-Manas Ranjan Mohapatra, Jyoti Ranjan Mohanty

Knowledge representation continues to be a much-researched topic in AI because of the realisation fairly early on that how information is arranged can often make or break an AI application. Thee main objective of this paper is to present the overall description of some commonly used knowledge representations techniques such as logic, semantic networks, production rules and frames.
