Definition: inference engine


Software that makes a decision from the facts and rules contained in the knowledge base of an expert system or the algorithm derived from a deep learning AI system. The inference engine is the processing component in contrast to the fact gathering or learning side of the system. Expert systems and inference engines have given way to neural networks, which are much more advanced. See neural network, deep learning and expert system.
