The deterministic AI system under review is an alternative to neural-network-based machine learning. In its application fields, which are science, technology, engineering, and business, the implementation of rule-based AI systems leads to benefits such as accuracy and correctness of design, and personalization of the process itself and the results. An algorithmic AI suite is based on design and logical imitation models alone, without creating and/or using Big Data and knowledge bases. Excessive complexity of configuration and high design resource capacity, which are inherent in deterministic systems, are balanced by a special methodology. A hierarchical modeling approach gives a quasi-dynamic network effect, symmetric to the analogous effect in neural networks. System performance is improved by deterministic reference training capable of modifying imitation models in online interaction with users. Such training, which serves as an alternative to neural machine learning, can be implemented by means of experimental partially empirical algorithms and system–user dialogues to build reference model libraries (portfolios). Partially empirical algorithms based on experimental design methods and system user dialogues are used to create reference model libraries (portfolios) that form a deterministic training system, which can be an alternative to neural machine learning. Estimated resources can be saved by using modified optimization techniques and by controlling the computational complexity of the algorithms. Since the proposed system in the considered layout has no analogues, and the relevant research and practical knowledge are extremely limited, special methods are required to implement this project. A gradual, phased implementation process involves the step-by-step formation of sets of algorithms with verification tests at each stage. Each test is performed using an iteration method, and each test includes test, tweak, and modification cycles. Final testing should lead to the development of an AI algorithm package, including related methodological and working papers.
