To demonstrate the power of our approach in a real-world setting we study an inventory management problem faced by the distribution arm of an international media conglomerate, which ships an average of 1bil units per year.
A new approach for uncertainty management for fuzzy, rule based decision support systems is proposed: The domain expert's knowledge is expressed by a set of rules that frequently refer to vague and uncertain propositions.
The objective of this research is to bring together two complementary knowledge representation schemes: term subsumption languages, which represent and reason about defining characteristics of concepts, and proximate reasoning models, which deal with uncertain knowledge and data in expert systems.
A complete approach to reasoning under uncertainty requires support for incremental and interactive formulation and revision of, as well as reasoning with, models of the problem domain capable of representing our uncertainty.
This paper discusses a project undertaken between the Departments of Computing Science, Statistics, and the College of Veterinary Medicine to design a medical diagnostic system.
MINDS is a distributed system of cooperating query engines that customize, document retrieval for each user in a dynamic environment.
In this paper, the feasibility of using finite totally ordered probability models under Alelinnas's Theory of Probabilistic Logic [Aleliunas, 1988] is investigated.
We investigate a method to deal with congestion of sectors and delays in the tactical phase of air traffic flow and capacity management.
This paper describes recent work on an ongoing project in medical diagnosis at the University of Guelph.
