Introduction on what is uncertainty An information about a problem may be incomplete, inconsistent and uncertain. Uncertainty–Lack of adequate information to make a decision. Uncertainty can be defined as the lack of exact know ledge that would enable to reach a perfect reliable conclusion. Uncertainty prevents us from making the best decisions or we may end up with a bad decision . We the humans are able to survive in this world filled with uncertainties. The reason is we are able to reason out.

In classical logic we have exact reasoning and it assumes that perfect knowledge always. IF A is True then A is not False. IF A is False then A is not True. To develop expert systems for real-world problems, we couldn’t provide exact perfect information. This is because the information available about the real-world problem is in exact, imprecise and uncertain

Four sources of uncertain knowledge in expert system Weak implications Imprecise Language Unknown data Combining the views of different experts’s opinions Weak Implications: Rule based system suffers with weak implications and vague association. Domain experts and knowledge engineer finds it very difficult to correlate the condition and action parts of the rules. The system must have the capability to accept vagueness association

Imprecise Language Our natural language is inherently ambiguous, vague, imprecise and filled with uncertainty. We describe facts using terms like often , sometimes , very often and it is ve ry difficult to express the knowledge precisely in the form of IF THEN production rules.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
