The causal inference in this study follows a Bayesian logic
, which aims at updating the degree of confidence in a theory.

founder Stuart Russell.
Sangero bases his thesis on empirical studies (which supposedly prove the large prevalence of false confessions as a major cause for false convictions and the fact-finders' inability to discern true from false confessions) and on a Bayesian logic
As an alternative, we investigate a model in which members might defer to an emerging consensus, even when that consensus choice might conflict with an individual's Bayesian logic
. Neither model is supported by the data.
It's clearly an easier route than trying to explain Bayesian logic
Acquiring knowledge is an important stage in creating expert systems: it is achieved by the knowledge engineer who needs to have a good knowledge of the methods of representing knowledge, methods provided by knowledge engineering such as: the method based on production rules; the method based on semantic nets; the frame-based method; the method based on logical models (propositional logic, the logic of predicates of the 2nd order); the method based on probabilistic logic (Bayesian logic
); the method based on fuzzy set and logic (Moise, 2007).
