Sample text

In a sense, by concentrating on domains, rather than on an entirety, anthropology and artificial intelligence have developed mutually beneficial approaches. Ethnoscience offers expert systems development methods for knowledge acquisition; expert systems provides anthropology (and other social sciences) a creative way to link rules to behavioral outcomes. 30 31 Â < previous page < previous page page_37 page_38 next page > next page > Page 38 The relatively assumption-free approach of ethnoscience is grounded in a distinction borrowed from linguistics, that between emic vs.

4. Pragmatic Strategies Many pragmatic decisions must be made in constructing expert systems. Here we discuss some of the most important ones and some of the strategies we have found useful in resolving these problems. The issues to be considered include: 1) Summarizing and editing the knowledge base 2) Reducing the complexity of the knowledge base 3) Selecting a method for handling uncertainty 45 46 4) Deciding whether to use an inductive or deductive approach 5) Choosing representation and inference strategies 6) The expert system development process These issues apply to all expert systems.

That knowledge is not what is taught in classes; it is what experience, from interactions with knowledgeable people in information-rich settings, has taught the expert. Since that knowledge is largely out-of-awareness, the experts either have no metatheory of it, or have a very limited and possibly highly individual one, and so tend to underestimate both how much they may know and how long and complicated will be the task of exteriorizing that knowledge. The methods of ethnoscience offer an approach to the discovery of domains of knowledge from experts; they are based on structured interviewing and integration of tasks that tend to exteriorize knowledge.
