Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Machine learning
  • Statistics

His primary areas of investigation include Artificial intelligence, Expert system, Mycin, Inference and Legal expert system. His studies in Artificial intelligence integrate themes in fields like Automated theorem proving, Negation and Natural language processing. The study incorporates disciplines such as Heuristic programming and Operations research in addition to Expert system.

His Mycin research includes elements of Management science, Antimicrobial, Selection, Knowledge base and Information system. Bruce G. Buchanan has researched Legal expert system in several fields, including Rule based expert system, Engineering management and Rule-based system. His Rule-based system research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Model-based reasoning and Knowledge acquisition.

His most cited work include:

  • Rule-based expert systems : the MYCIN experiments of the Stanford Heuristic Programming Project (1668 citations)
  • A model of inexact reasoning in medicine (1125 citations)
  • A simple algorithm for identifying negated findings and diseases in discharge summaries (780 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Artificial intelligence, Machine learning, Expert system, Inference and Knowledge management are his primary areas of study. In his research, Knowledge extraction is intimately related to Domain, which falls under the overarching field of Artificial intelligence. The Expert system study which covers Knowledge acquisition that intersects with Knowledge engineering.

His Inference study combines topics in areas such as Computer program, Applications of artificial intelligence and Mass spectrum. The Knowledge management study combines topics in areas such as Mycin and Knowledge base. The various areas that Bruce G. Buchanan examines in his Knowledge base study include Domain knowledge and Knowledge-based systems.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Artificial intelligence (41.83%)
  • Machine learning (14.90%)
  • Expert system (14.42%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2002-2020)?

  • Artificial intelligence (41.83%)
  • Machine learning (14.90%)
  • World Wide Web (3.37%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Bruce G. Buchanan mainly focuses on Artificial intelligence, Machine learning, World Wide Web, Relevance and Publishing. Bruce G. Buchanan has included themes like Reminiscence, Process and Natural language processing in his Artificial intelligence study. His Machine learning research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Domain, Data mining, Knowledge extraction and Protein crystallization.

His Relevance study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Crawling, Task and Service. In his work, Expert system is strongly intertwined with Rule-based system, which is a subfield of Rule based expert system. His Expert system course of study focuses on Knowledge-based systems and Mycin.

Between 2002 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • A (Very) Brief History of Artificial Intelligence (134 citations)
  • Rule-Based Expert Systems (122 citations)
  • Predicting dire outcomes of patients with community acquired pneumonia (41 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Machine learning
  • Statistics

His scientific interests lie mostly in Software engineering, Artificial intelligence, Rule based expert system, Legal expert system and Expert system. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Computational biology and Pattern recognition. His Rule based expert system research includes themes of Class, Key and Knowledge engineer.

His Key research incorporates elements of Intelligent decision support system, Mycin, Knowledge management and Rule-based system. His studies deal with areas such as Tacit knowledge, Engineering management and Knowledge-based systems as well as Expert system. His Knowledge representation and reasoning research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Field, Automated theorem proving, Inference and Language understanding.
