Decision theory in expert systems and artificial intelligenc

  title={Decision theory in expert systems and artificial intelligenc},
  author={Eric Horvitz and John S. Breese and Max Henrion},
  journal={Int. J. Approx. Reasoning},
Despite their different perspectives, artificial intelligence (AI) and the disciplines of decision science have common roots and strive for similar goals. This paper surveys the potential for addressing problems in representation, inference, knowledge engineering, and explanation within the decision-theoretic framework. Recent analyses of the restrictions of several traditional A I reasoning techniques, coupled with the development of more tractable and expressive decision-theoretic… CONTINUE READING
