The purpose of this paper is to provide a brief overview of expert systems technology and its potential applications. The Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) held two workshops of expert systems, the First OECD Workshop on Knowledge-Based Expert Systems in Transportation held in ESPOO, Finland, in June 1990, to review current expert systems activities in the OECD countries, and the Second OECD Workshop on Knowledge- Based Expert Systems in Transportation held in Montreal, Canada in June 1992, to focus on the problems and potential of expert systems in highway transportation. Prior to the workshops, the OECD circulated two questionnaires (1990 and 1991) which provided knowledge on highway related expert systems existing and under development. This paper is largely excerpts from an overview of expert systems activities in OECD countries (1), presented at the second OECD workshop in Montreal.
