Abstract

The representation and propagation of dynamic knowledge considering temporal changes of attribute values is an important problem in the domain of reasoning under uncertainty. Subject to this paper is an extension of the model of Bayesian networks that is capable of handling temporal constraints. A software prototype has been developed under the expert system shell KEE on a TI micro-explorer.
