Abstract

Most Group Decision Support Systems do not include automated or even rudimentary information retrieval capabilities to aid users in making better decisions. Participants must often rely on the meeting facilitator for their information requirements, but it is difficult for the facilitator to comprehend the complex information requirements of the group members. A prototype knowledge-based information retrieval agent which supports a Group Decision Support System has been developed at the University of Mississippi. This prototype allows group members to query an on-line knowledge base of facts using normal English syntax, obviating the need for group members to know the location of relevant information or how to retrieve it. A case study of student groups using this information retrieval agent demonstrates the feasibility of the technique for the support of Group Decision Support Systems.
