Knowledge-base Examples

Demonstrations and Training Exercises

These applications ('apps') are knowledge-bases of varying degrees of detail, used to demonstrate features of DataLex knowledge bases, and to teach others how to write knowledge-bases. Select 'Run consultation' at the top of any knowledge-base in order to run the app, so as to test the types of conclusions that can be reached by using it. All of these apps are for demonstration purposes only, and are still being further developed.

Older knowledge-bases

These older knowledge-bases have been written some time ago and the law they include is not up-to-date. However, they are still useful as demonstrations how lengthier more complex knowledge-bases can be developed using the DataLex software (Copyright and Privacy consultations), or different features of the DataLex software such as case-based reasoning (Finder's cases) or document Generation (Simple will generator).
