RiverSoftAVG announces Early Experience Program for Inference Engine
Component Suite v2.0 for Delphi 5/6

Release of Inference Engine Component Suite EEP for Delphi 5/6

January  17th, 2002 -- RiverSoftAVG is pleased to announce the immediate
availability of the Early Experience Program (EEP) for Inference Engine
Component Suite (IECS) for Delphi 5 and 6.  The Inference Engine Component
Suite (IECS) is the powerful Delphi component suite for adding rule-based
intelligence and fuzzy logic to your programs.  This professional suite
provides expert system (rule-based) programming from within the Borland
Delphi environment.  Extremely extensible and easy to use, the Inference
Engine component suites allows you to add expert systems or scripting
quickly and intuitively to your programs.  The Inference Engine suite is
perfect for adding business rules to your database program, artificial
intelligence to your games, or scripting capabilities to any program!  Let
your organization benefit now from the 3 years of effort, countless man
hours of programming, over 100 objects and components (not including the
over 250 user function objects!), over 40,000 lines of code, and almost 2 MB
of context-sensitive help!

The EEP is a beta version, with source code, which provides an opportunity
for users to experience the new version 2 BEFORE it is released.  EEP owners
automatically receive version 2.0 when it is released.  The EEP is
source-code owners only, which allows quicker distribution of changes to
users and more exact feedback from users.  The EEP is available as a new
purchase, as an upgrade (for previous source code owners), or as a
crossgrade (for previous NON-source code owners).

The Inference Engine Component Suite provides Delphi developers with the following benefits:

bullet100% Native Object Pascal code for Delphi 5 and 6
bulletRapid Application Development of Expert Systems Programs
bulletFuzzy Logic and Fuzzy Expert Systems!
bulletRoyalty Free Distribution of your programs!
