Funding a Revolution: Government Support for Computing Research (1999)

One of Trilogy's founders (a Stanford University graduate) learned about the expert system that Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) had developed for Digital Equipment Corporation to configure its VAX computers (XCON).4 Basing their work in part on the systems that had emerged from DENDRAL and MYCIN and what they learned about XCON, Trilogy's founders also used constraint-based equations and object-oriented programming methods, derived in part from AI research.5 Another of Trilogy's founders applied the company's methods to the marketing of personal computers (PCs) over the Internet.

In one study of AI (Office of Technology Assessment, 1985), expert systems were singled out as evidence of 'the first real commercial products of about 25 years of AI research' but were also criticized for 'several serious weaknesses' that demanded 'fundamental breakthroughs' to overcome.

By 1992, some 11 shell programs were available for the MacIntosh platform, 29 for IBM-DOS platforms, 4 for Unix platforms, and 12 for dedicated mainframe applications.6 A recent review of expert systems reported that the North American market for expert systems is roughly $250 million (representing about 70 percent of the total commercial AI market).
