      • The knowledge base is the collection of facts and rules which describe all the knowledge about the problem domain
      • The inference engine is the part of the system that chooses which facts and rules to apply when trying to solve the user’s query
      • The user interface is the part of the system which takes in the user’s query in a readable form and passes it to the inference engine. It then displays the results to the user.
