Two thirds of American adults are now obese or overweight, and this proportion continues to increase. Primary care doctors are placed at the front lines in addressing the obesity problem. However, they often experience difficulties in tackling the complex problem of obesity by reducing it to a simple matter of diet and exercise that ignores the underlying(More)
Background: In this research, a decision making system, based on fuzzy inference mechanism as proposed by Mamdani, is presented. Literature suggests that there is a lack of consistency among dentists in choosing treatment plan(s). So, this research work aims to facilitate the dentist decide the treatment plan(s) of the broken tooth. Methods: An expert(More)
One of the first decisions to be made when modelling a phenomenon is that of scale: at which level is the phenomenon most appropriately modelled? For some phenomena the answer may seem too obvious to warrant even asking the question, but other phenomena cover the gamut, from high to low levels of abstraction. This paper explores how two modelling approaches(More)
PURPOSE The objective of this paper is to present a model that uses multi-agent system (MAS) technology to assist doctors based at rural areas to receive timely expert opinions from specialist doctors working in medical institutions like the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Research, Chandigarh or the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi.

BACKGROUND The forces which affect homelessness are complex and often interactive in nature. Social forces such as addictions, family breakdown, and mental illness are compounded by structural forces such as lack of available low-cost housing, poor economic conditions, and insufficient mental health services.

Early diagnosis and treatment is crucial for a positive outcome, yet identifying meningitis is a complex process involving an array of signs and symptoms and multiple causal factors which require novel solutions to support(More)
Attempts to model insurgency have suffered from several obstacles. Qualitative research may be vague and conflicting, while quantitative research is limited due to the difficulties of collecting sufficient data in war and inferring complex relationships. We propose an innovative combination of Fuzzy Cognitive Maps and Cellular Automata to capture this(More)
The aim of this research work is to design an expert system to assist dentist in treating the mobile tooth. There is lack of consistency among dentists in choosing the treatment plan. Moreover, there is no expert system currently available to verify and support such decision making in dentistry. A Fuzzy Logic based expert system has been designed to accept(More)
