Abstract

Problem solving can be compared to a search in a state space. The description of the domain knowledge must be encoded as a knowledge base, then the problem solver searches through the state space for an appropriate answer. The experiment reported here is a comparison between GAs and a rule-based system searching the same space: that of four-part harmonisations of chorale melodies. The experiment leads to the conclusion that the quality of the solution fundamentally depends on the knowledge the system possesses and that the KBS is better suited for this task. We then outline an alternative approach of explicitly structuring control knowledge to solve this problem.
