Combining Opinions About the Order of Rule Execution

Jeffrey A. Barnett

How should opinions of control knowledge sources be represented and combined? These issues are addressed for the case where control knowledge is used to form an agenda, i.e., a proposed knowledge source execution order. A formal model is developed in the Dempster/Shafer belief calculus and computational problems are discussed as well. The model is applicable to many other problems where it is desired to order a set of candidates using a knowledge-based approach.
