This paper describes MINDS (Medical Inference and Decision Supporting System). In a field like psychiatry, it is difficult to define rules for diagnoses, so the authors tried to define rules automatically in this system. They report correct diagnoses in 94. 3% of didactic cases and in 79. 0% of new cases with these rules. This system is composed of three level structures. The first level includes the patient's answers to standardized tests (TPI etc. ); the second level is estimated from symptom patterns; the third level is the diagnostic class. From the 1st to the 2nd level of this system, statistical methods were used and from the 2nd to the 3rd, a production rule technique was employed.
