Sandahl, K. (1985). Creating an Antibody Analysis Advisor as an Exploratory investigation into Expert System Development. Technical Report LiTH-IDA-R-85-20, Department of Computer and Information Science, Linköping University, Sweden. (bibtex),
Abstract: Intelligent assistance for the selection of diagnosing techniques shows a high potential for increased accuracy, reliability and cost efficiency in many areas, not the least in medicine. An expert system, called A3, for guidance in the selection of analysis techniques for blood samples has been developed. Preliminary tests show that the advice given by the system reaches expert level, resulting in significant higher precision than current practices at the hospital. We give an introduction to identification of irregular antibodies as our problem domain, describe the A3 knowledge base and comment upon the development work including the knowledge acquisition process. Finally we discuss our experiences and the motivation for a subsequent project, where A3 has been migrated from the original EMYCIN environment to a delivery system based on the MUMPS database system.
