VisiRule Expert System Software
Deliver New Online Products & Services
VisiRule is an easy-to-use Low-Code No-Code tool which lets subject matter experts rapidly design intelligent advice and troubleshooting guides using decision tree flowcharts, and deliver them as rule-based expert systems. VisiRule solutions can be deployed as web apps, embedded services, or as Intelligent ChatBots with FAQ access.
VisiRule converts expertise into smart AI applications which can triage complex problems, make recommendations, enact actions and generate bespoke documents.
VisiRule enables experts to quickly build systems to handle those common but non-trivial enquiries and computations that staff have to spend time on, and customers need solving, in a cost-effective and convenient way. This frees staff to focus on more difficult tasks, and allows clients to access high-quality advice anywhere, anytime.
VisiRule combines a visual diagramming tool, a code generator, FAQ access and document generation. This eliminates the need to encode know-how into some incomprehensible “computer gobbledygook”. Authors can keep current their online advice using a visual model as regulations, best practice and the people change.
Use VisiRule to:
Deliver interactive diagnostic problem resolution across all devices
Triage & troubleshoot legal, tax, medical and engineering problems
Support legal, medical and financial self-assessment with report generation
Generate Intelligent ChatBots delivering legal, tax, medical or product knowledge
Provide self-service situation specific advice to help ensure regulatory compliance
Combine legal reasoning and contract analytics for intelligent contract review
VisiRule's visual editor is easy-to-use and enables the rapid creation and testing of intelligent systems with almost no training required.
VisiRule helps you draw a viable model as it knows which links are appropriate based on the question type of the previous box.
VisiRule uses a robust logic engine to ensure a high degree of consistency.
VisiRule combines lean AI technology with modern cloud-based servers to provide a totally scalable and affordable solution.
Easy to Create
Programming via Flow Charts
VisiRule is a visual tool which combines smart diagramming, AI reasoning, Excel-like calculations and document automation. Like Visio and MindMap, you simply draw a model, but one you can execute. VisiRule’s programming via flow charting permits rapid prototyping and review and so greatly enhances the accurate capture and shared understanding of knowledge.
Visual knowledge is much easier to understand, validate and maintain than text. Afterall, a picture is worth 1,000 words.
Low-Code No-Code Development
VisiRule is a Low-Code No-Code tool which enables users to draw models for digital decision automation. Most people can learn how to author in minutes or hours not days or weeks. Read about No Code and Lawyers in the NoCode Journal.
Easy to Share
VisiRule provides a clear, visual way of representing the underlying decision knowledge - one that business users can understand.
This means that expertise can be shared across a wide group to help form a consensus. VisiRule's advanced code generation capability means that the model can be immediately executed and tested.
All the knowledge contained within a chart can be exported as XML and WMF to help provide formal documentation of the process.
Easy to Deploy
Custom HTML Presentation
Questions can be presented in house-style simply by editing the style sheets associated with the various assets, brands and icons.
Put your brand in their pocket!
VisiRule automatically constructs the questionnaire, the Business Rules and calculations directly from the chart itself.
Connected & Embedded Delivery
VisiRule can be be delivered using interactive forms and/or via embedded, connected services using REST and JSON.
Easy to Explain
Explainable AI means the algorithm can explain itself. VisiRule records each visitor's execution path which can be explained in terms of HOW, WHAT and WHY. Contrast this to neural nets which are black boxes and can NOT explain their reasoning.
User sessions, including all answers, calculations and conclusions, are logged and can be distributed via email or pushed into a database.
VisiRule offers a Truth Table Generator which can evaluate all possible paths to provide an audit of the knowledge in the chart.
Easy to Generate
VisiRule includes a powerful document generation engine to automate document output in various formats such as text, PDF, XML, HTML and RTF.
By associating suitably tagged document templates, i.e. boilerplates, VisiRule can produce high-quality documents using the answers gathered in the session. Not limited to inserting simple values, VisiRule can combine complex logic with conditional text selection and insertion.
Easy to Maintain
As your chart gets used and the legal or business context changes, you can amend, revise and enhance its logic, and so ensure that it is up-to-date.
You can use VisiRule Analytics to help understand how a chart is being used and adapt it to the changing environment in which it operates.
Knowledge is Precious
VisiRule can help your company capture and retain valuable knowledge which can be shared via XML or as pictures.
Four Quadrants of Reasoning
The knowledge in VisiRule charts can come from historical data using Machine Learning, or from human experts or any combination of the two.
VisiRule FastChart enables VisiRule to access predictive models built by ML tools such as KNIME and RapidMiner to create an initial VisiRule chart. Read how the Titanic dataset was used in such a way.
VisiRule charts can generate single page questionnaires or guided interviews as web forms or chatbots. They can even be embedded within external data-driven automated processes.
In hybrid delivery mode, some questions are asked, and others answered using existing data, web services or IoT streams.
Expert System Software Technology
VisiRule is part of a Low-Code No-Code No-Cliff AI platform which includes:
Flex is a Low-Code, expert system software tool
Prolog a powerful No-Cliff AI programming language.
Flex Expert System
VisiRule generates code in terms of Flex, LPA's powerful rules-based expert system shell toolkit which supports both forwards and backward chaining rules with an English-like Knowledge Specification Language (KSL).
Prolog is a well proven AI programming language with pattern matching and logical inference. Prolog provides a robust foundation for the LPA stack. The LPA implementation includes a dedicated string datatype which provides the basis for the family of VisiRule NLU/NLP functions.
