The credibility of AI rose to new heights in the minds of individuals and critics when many Expert Systems(ES) were successfully planned, developed, and implemented in many challenging areas. As of today, quite a heavy investments is done in this sector. The success of these programs in very selected fields involving high technical expertise has left people to explore new avenues. An expert computer system is a computer program which captures the knowledge of a human expert on a given problem, and applies this knowledge to solve complex problems in a manner similar to the expert. This paper describes important concepts pertaining to the expert computer systems, highlights the major characteristics, structure and design methodology of the expert systems. This paper also reviews the different applications of expert systems in various classes of science.
