Exploring the Knowledge of Human Expert beyond His Willing Expression
The paper discusses the alternative method of medical experts participation in technical inventions for medicine. Blind tests and various statistic-based correlations of human and automatic interpretation results are commonly used today. Our paper postulates a deeper insight into the expert performance in order to better understanding and simulating his reasoning in the software. The benefit is twofold: the measurement is objective and the closer simulation of human reasoning yields better performance in case of unexpected input. Although the area of application is the very broad intersection of medicine and technology, we focus on the automatic ECG interpretation, and propose the agile software featuring a human-like behavior. Two examples of experiments aimed at extraction of some aspects of ECG interpretation knowledge are also included in the presentation.
