Consensus and knowledge acquisition
In order to build an expert system based not only on the opinion of a single expert but constructed using information collected from a group of experts, one may use techniques of knowledge elicitation in conjunction with methods coming from the theories of consensus and synthesis of judgements. In this paper we describe a knowledge elicitation methodology and we extend it in order to deal with judgements of several experts.
