Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

    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.
