Indexing Technique For Integrating Medical Diagnostic Knowledge Base With Voice Based Urdu Language Interface

Knowledge based system absorbs the expert knowledge in the form of facts, rules, procedures and heuristics. Experts’ knowledge is stored in the knowledge base that helps to refine the present knowledge and adding new knowledge without recompiling the program. Medical diagnosis is one of a first knowledge based area where the Expert System technology is applied. Almost all the knowledge based medical diagnostic systems are relied on the English language. This is a hindrance for Pakistani rural area’s population to utilize this system because of illiteracy. In this connection this paper proposes the indexing technique for integrating the medical diagnostic knowledge base with Pakistani national language (Urdu) voice based user interface for accommodating the illiterate population. Keywords— Diagnostic tree, Knowledge Base, medical diagnosis system, speech recognition.
