Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

We know for a long time that expert system (ES) must not know in a different way than how man knows. We would not expect men to adapt their thinking processes to the machine, would we? Evolution would not let peoples' minds adopt criteria weighting or fuzzy logic. This is why we developed our Doctus1 knowledge-based expert system based on symbolic logic ? that is the easiest to understand artificial knowledge representation to the decision taker. However, this is all history now... Now we perhaps understand decision takers better ? maybe it was worth observing them for nearly two decades. Decision takers, and we mean only the most experienced ones, want to be able to play around a bit with a particular decision and, eventually, they want some help in delegating the decisions they are bored with.
