2012 (English)In: Proceedings of Agents Applied to Health Care (A2HC) 2012, 2012, 151-160 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper we introduce a multi-agent approach designed to deal with medical qualitative diagnosis. This approachis based on BDI-agents which are called Observer and Validating agents. The Observer agents are supported by adeductive inference process and the Validating agents are supported by an abductive inference process. The knowledge bases of these agents are captured by a class of possibilistic logic programs. Hence these agents are able to deal with qualitative information. In order to manage an interaction between Observer and Validating agents, a deliberation dialogue process is defined. The approach is illustrated byreal scenarios from diagnosing dementia disease.
