The Idea of Understanding – perception of the intended meaning of words shows the grasping and mastery of an individual. Comprehension is an important trait in human interaction. Actual application of an idea or method can be so much easier if discernment of the concept is well interpreted.

What are Knowledge Based Systems?
In today’s world, artificial Intelligence is so prevalent that the scare of actual robots taking over the world doesn’t seem like such a far-fetched idea. Knowledge Based Systems aid in human learning and decision making to solve real world problems by generating knowledge from different sources and thus acts like a search engine for any query you may have, that is, the knowledge base acts as a knowledge repository.
What sets KBS apart from traditional computer-based information systems is its capability of creating new knowledge in an intelligent manner by referring to stored data. It handles a large amount of unstructured data thus can provide efficient documentation for problem solving where human expertise is needed but is unavailable. These systems, therefore, can store important information for future usage.

KBS have limitations of cognitive techniques to manipulate the large volumes of data with the abstract nature of the concerned knowledge. However, as seen in films like iRobot, Transformers; Terminator that simulates a future of robots and machines gone rogue, the actual 21st Century fear; that gives one the chills is the levels of intelligence exhibited by AIs showing that bots may take over the world very soon at the pace of advancement we are going. Human beings are too much. And finally, Samantha.
