Menu Interfaces to Expert Systems: Overview and Evaluation

Moerdler, Galina Datskovsky

In order for a human expert to be able to answer a person's question s/he often has to carry out extensive dialogs with that person in order to gather information about that person's needs. Extensive interaction and clarification are also needed for expert systems. One way expert systems communicate with their users is via a menu interface. To gather information the system poses a question and the user is given a number of possible answers and s/he then proceeds to choose the one that s/he thinks best corresponds with the correct answer.
