Abstract

This paper discusses issues in developing computerized expert systems to advise students and researchers in the design and conduct of social science research projects. The presentation briefly discusses expert systems and key knowledge representation and reasoning strategies from the field of artificial intelligence. Next it discusses some problems of knowledge representation and reasoning in the design and conduct of social science research. Then it illustrates the application of expert systems to the selection of appropriate statistical analyses. Finally, it assesses the utility of this approach for providing programs to improve the design and conduct of social science research.
