Problem Formulation as the Reduction of a Decision Model
David Heckerman, Eric Horvitz
In this paper, we extend the QMRDT probabilistic model for the domain of internal medicine to include decisions about treatments. In addition, we describe how we can use the comprehensive decision model to construct a simpler decision model for a specific patient. In so doing, we transform the task of problem formulation to that of narrowing of a larger problem.
