This paper focuses on approaches that address the intractability of knowledge acquisition of conditional probability tables in causal or Bayesian belief networks. We state a rule that we term the "recursive noisy OR" (RNOR) which allows combinations of dependent causes to be entered and later used for estimating the probability of an effect. In the… (More)

The issue of confidence factors in Knowledge Based Systems has become increasingly important and Dempster-Shafer (DS) theory has become increasingly popular as a basis for these factors. This paper discusses the need for an empirical interpretation of any theory of confidence factors applied to Knowledge Based Systems and describes an empirical… (More)

This paper provides <i>a priori</i> cirteria for determing when a causal model is sufficiently complete to be considered a Bayesian Network, and a new representation for Bayesian Networks shown to be more computationally efficient in a wide range of circumstances than current representations.Expert Systems for domains in which uncertainty plays a major role… (More)
