Production systems as control structures for programming languages

  • Author(s): Brooks, Ruven

Abstract

Production systems have recently found considerable favor as the control structure for systems in artificial intelligence. This work has lead other researchers to suggest the creation of languages which have production systems as a primary or alternative control structure. This paper explores some of the possibilities available in these languages; an experimental language with a production system control structure is presented, along with an example program written in it. Appropriate application domains for languages of this type are discussed, and the potential for using them with future hardware architectures is explored.
