Advantages and a Limitation of Using LEG Nets in a Real-TIme Problem
After experimenting with a number of non-probabilistic methods for dealing with uncertainty many researchers reaffirm a preference for probability methods  , although this remains controversial. The importance of being able to form decisions from incomplete data in diagnostic problems has highlighted probabilistic methods  which compute posterior probabilities from prior distributions in a way similar to Bayes Rule, and thus are called Bayesian methods. This paper documents the use of a Bayesian method in a real time problem which is similar to medical diagnosis in that there is a need to form decisions and take some action without complete knowledge of conditions in the problem domain. This particular method has a limitation which is discussed.
