Applying KDD techniques to produce diagnostic rules for dynamic systems

Derek Sleeman, F Mitchell, R Milne

Research output: Working paper/PreprintDiscussion paper


This paper argues that there is a discernible trend in Knowledge Acquisition towards systems which are easier for the domain expert to use; such systems ask more focused questions and questions at a higher level. The TIGON system which illustrates this trend is described in some detail. So far TIGON has been used to infer fault detection and fault diagnosis rules for a gas turbine engine. But we argue that the methodology evolved here should make it suitable for use with a wide range of dynamic systems, including scientific ones. The relationship of TIGON to data mining is discussed as is the relationship of this system to other trends in KA, namely:
