  • Publication number: 20050197988
    Abstract: Using Bayesian belief networks to incorporate data from previous experiences to make calculated decision and course of action recommendations, a program was created to incorporate the use of such artificial intelligence systems in the analysis and classifications in the fields of adaptive survey or assessment development and classification systems. In the preferred embodiment, a program was created to categorize work adaptively based on related questions, known relationships, and Bayesian belief networks.
