Abstract : In Navy command and control systems there are increasing problems with situations in which Navy tactical decision makers must make quick decisions based on uncertain information. The SABER tool is being developed to use an explanation-based reasoning approach to assist in making such decisions. Explanation-based reasoning is used to model an explanation-based decision- making process through which people are believed to perform some decision-making tasks. SABER constructs and evaluates alternative explanations to account for input data that may be incomplete and inconsistent. The explanations are evaluated according to three criteria: simplicity, completeness, and significance. SABER is designed to allow users to easily change the data and to modify the rankings of the explanations. This emphasis on modifiability effectively enables users to train SABER. The tool is being used to demonstrate to the Navy the capability of using AI techniques to assist humans in making critical command and control decisions....
