Abstract: The process of knowledge acquisition is central in the development of intelligent computer programs. In the second generation of expert systems, the elicitation, modeling, and representation of human problem-solving knowledge remain the principal barriers that development teams must overcome. This overview surveys some of the major barriers to the construction of expert-system knowledge bases, and reviews current and emerging knowledge- acquisition methods. The common thread that runs through research on knowledge acquisition is the creation of models of problem-solving behavior, and the use of those models to guide further knowledge elicitation and model formulation.
