Development of Medical Expert System
First we introduce you to "who", "why" and "how" of the project giving you a quick but comprehensive picture of how expert doctors make a diagnosis, and why exactly we want to emulate their thinking along with a reality check on health care issues. And the reason why python and pyke, and why open source collaboration on this project is quintessential for bringing about a real change.
Secondly we will explain "how" of the project - what is a rule based expert system and what are certainty factors. We have a few experimental puzzles on certainty factors which we hope you enjoy cracking by which you simultaneously gain insight about the system!
Finally we will lay before you the future plan of the project, showing you the myriad of possibilities by which you can help it and showing with examples how bringing together doctors and programmers compounds innovation.
