Measles is a highly infectious child disease that causes serious complications and death worldwide. Measles is generally diagnosed from its signs and symptoms by a physician, which cannot be measured with 100% certainty during the diagnosis process. Consequently, the traditional way of diagnosing measles from its signs and symptoms lacks the accuracy. Therefore, a belief rule-based inference methodology using evidential reasoning approach (RIMER), which is capable of handling various types of uncertainties has been used to develop an expert system to diagnose measles under uncertainty. The results, generated, from the system have been compared with the expert opinion as well as with a Fuzzy Logic based system. In both the cases, it has been found that the Belief Rule Based Expert (BRBES), presented in this paper, is more reliable and accurate.
