    • Consensus Knowledge Acquisition 

      Trice, Andrew; Davis, Randall (1989-12-01)
      We have developed a method and prototype program for assisting two experts in their attempts to construct a single, consensus knowledge base. We show that consensus building can be effectively facilitated by a debugging ...
    • Issues in Model Based Troubleshooting 

      Hamscher, Walter; Davis, Randall (1987-03-01)
      To determine why something has stopped working, it's helpful to know how it was supposed to work in the first place. This simple fact underlies recent work on a number of systems that do diagnosis from knowledge about ...
    • Model-Based Reasoning: Troubleshooting 

      Davis, Randall; Hamscher, Walter C. (1988-07-01)
      To determine why something has stopped working, it is useful to know how it was supposed to work in the first place. That simple observation underlies some of the considerable interest generated in recent years on the topic ...
    • Negotiation as a Metaphor for Distributed Problem Solving 

      Davis, Randall; Smith, Reid G. (1981-05-01)
      We describe the concept of distributed problem solving and define it as the cooperative solution of problems by a decentralized and loosely coupled collection of problem solvers. This approach to problem solving offers ...
    • Representations for Reasoning About Change 

      Simmons, Reid G.; Davis, Randall (1983-04-01)
      This paper explores representations used to reason about objects which change over time and the processes which cause changes. Specifically, we are interested in solving a problem known as geologic interpretation. To ...
