MORE: From Observing Knowledge Engineers to Automating Knowledge Acquisition

  • Gary Kahn
Part of the The Kluwer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science book series (SECS, volume 57)


MORE interviews experts for the information they use to solve diagnostic problems, demonstrating that some knowledge-engineering skills can be simulated. These interviews are guided by very specific problem-solving and knowledge-acquisition strategies. As MORE’s knowledge base becomes more complete, MORE shows an improved ability to ask relevant questions and to accurately detect errors in the knowledge base. Knowledge elicited by MORE is represented in an event (or qualitative causal) model. This model is used to generate rules and to recognize inconsistencies in the confidence factors assigned to rules by domain experts. MORE applies these rules to solve diagnostic problems.
