Probabilistic Reasoning in Decision Support Systems : From Computation to Common Sense

  title={Probabilistic Reasoning in Decision Support Systems : From Computation to Common Sense},
  author={Marek J. Druzdzel},
Most areas of engineering, science, and management use important tools based on probabilistic methods. The common thread of the entire spectrum of these tools is aiding in decision making under uncertainty: the choice of an interpretation of reality or the choice of a course of action. Although the importance of dealing with uncertainty in decision making is widely acknowledged, dissemination of probabilistic and decision-theoretic methods in Artificial Intelligence has been surprisingly slow… CONTINUE READING
