Dynamic Network Updating Techniques For Diagnostic Reasoning

  title={Dynamic Network Updating Techniques For Diagnostic Reasoning},
  author={Gregory M. Provan},
A new probabilistic network construction system, DYNASTY, is proposed for diagnos­ tic reasoning given variables whose probabil­ ities change over time. Diagnostic reason­ ing is formulated as a sequential stochastic process, and is modeled using influence dia­ grams. Given a set 0 of observations, DY­ NASTY creates an influence diagram in or­ der to devise the best action given 0. Sensi­ tivity analyses are conducted to determine if the best network has been created, given the uncertainty in… CONTINUE READING
