Abstract: A system performs operation monitoring in which a learning model in operation is monitored. In the operation monitoring, the system performs a first certainty factor comparison to determine, each time the learning model in operation to which input data is input outputs output data, whether or not a certainty factor of the learning model is below a first threshold. In a case where a result of the first certainty factor comparison is true, the system replaces the learning model in operation with any of candidate learning models having a certainty factor higher than the certainty factor of the learning model in operation in which the result of true is obtained among one or more candidate learning models (one or more learning models each having a version different from a version of the learning model in operation), as a learning model of an operation target.
