  • Predictive data entry in medical records

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):8/1 - 8/3
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (124 KB)

    Work on predictive data entry arises out of the PEN&PAD(GP) project which is developing a clinical workstation for use by general practitioners. Recently, this approach has been extended to the hospital-based care of elderly patients-PEN&PAD(Geriatrics). The goal of PEN&PAD is to develop systems which can be routinely used by doctors, nurses, physiotherapists etc, and which will replac... View full abstract»

  • Intelligent health care information systems: are they appropriate?

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):3/1 - 3/3
    Cited by:  Papers (1)

    The application of artificial intelligence (AI) in health care has had a long history of great promise. Striking success has been claimed in areas such as computer aided diagnosis, although contradictory evidence has also appeared. The progression toward intelligent decision support systems (IDSS) appears to be a logical, and perhaps inevitable, one. The author, however, is not convinced that IDSS... View full abstract»

  • Analysis of the inconsistency in assessing the probability of subjective events

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):7/1 - 7/3
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (116 KB)

    The problems underlying the interrogation of experts and the presentation of knowledge are evident in the vivid polemic now underway among AI researchers about the best way of acquisition, presentation and processing of knowledge in an atmosphere of uncertainty in knowledge-based systems. This controversy is of vital importance in view of the fact that most human decisions are taken in an environm... View full abstract»

  • A model based toolkit for building medical diagnostic support systems in developing countries

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):9/1 - 916
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (432 KB)

    One of the most appealing potential applications for artificial intelligence in developing countries is the construction of medical expert systems for use in areas where medical expertise is unavailable or thin on the ground. What is needed is a tool that provides knowledge structuring facilities that can be used by local experts in developing countries and does not require them to become knowledg... View full abstract»

  • An expert system for the mechanical ventilator settings

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):1/1 - 1/3
    Cited by:  Patents (3)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (144 KB)

    An expert system is described which has been designed to provide a prototype system for the development and management of mechanical ventilator settings, by using the system more effectively to support human knowledge processing. The principal objective is to build and implement an expert system for a mechanically controlled ventilator used on patients in the intensive care unit (ICU), and to assi... View full abstract»

  • Fuzzy logic-based and neural network-based reasoning with application to blood pressure management

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):4/1 - 4/3
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (160 KB)

    Two distinctive approaches to the implementation of approximate reasoning in rule-based fuzzy decision-making and control systems are presented. While the first approach, based on possibility theory, bears some resemblance to a traditional event-driven inference system with the incorporation of fuzzy concepts, the second scheme, based on the technique of neural networks, represents a substantial d...

  • Intelligent medical multimedia-based tutoring systems: design issues

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):101 - 103
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (152 KB)

    The application of computer technology to the teaching of medicine has been attempted with varying success over the years, but newer technology and better development tools suggest that a change in the style of application software is about to take place and that computer assisted learning may soon be commonplace in medical schools. The authors address some of the design features of two intelligen... View full abstract»

  • A family therapy expert system: a practical application of expert systems in the area of psychological diagnosis

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):2/1 - 215
    Cited by:  Patents (2)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (368 KB)

    A discussion is given on a psychiatric expert system that has been in use for over two and a half years at the Family Therapy Unit of Springfield Hospital in London. The article begins by describing briefly the kind of work that is conducted by the unit and the computing needs that this work involves. It then goes on to describe the system itself and closes by offering some comments about the poss... View full abstract»

  • The application of unsupervised artificial neural networks to the sub-classification of subjects at-risk of Huntington's Disease

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):5/1 - 5/9
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (404 KB)

    The contingent negative variation (CNV), which is an evoked response in the human electroencephalogram (EEG), was measured for a number of Huntington's disease patients (HDs) and subjects at-risk of developing HD (ARs), and for equal numbers of matched normal subjects. The sampled voltage response values and the duration of the CNV were then used as input data to Kohonen and ART2 unsupervised arti... View full abstract»

  • Fuzzy hypothesis trees and decision making

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):6/1 - 6/4
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (148 KB)

    A new interpretation of decision tree induction is provided. A method is suggested to infer the class of an object using fuzzy relations. It is shown that this new method has several advantages over previous ones in knowledge representation. It can handle vague and incomplete evidence to correctly classify the objects. The problem of unknown evidence is also representable in a uniform way View full abstract»
