Scientific Research

WizWhy can be applied for inferring rules in a wide range of scientific fields, including biology, genetics, medicine, chemistry, economics, psychology and sociology.

  1. In medical research, WizWhy can reveal laws relating between symptoms and diseases.
  2. In chemistry, WizWhy can reveal rules that show the relationships between features of materials.
  3. Researchers in social sciences can use WizWhy to discern patterns and characteristics that designate students’ aptitude for academic success.
  4. In genetics WizWhy can reveal the relations between gens and phenotype features.

Generally, in research entailing large quantities of data, WizWhy can save significant time and effort by assuming the scientist’s burden of revealing rules. WizWhy may just revolutionize traditional methods of conducting research in scientific fields.

Example: applying WizWhy for genetics

WizWhy can be used for revealing the necessary and sufficient conditions that relate between gens and phenotype features.

The data should be a flat file like the following:

 Gen 1Gen 2Gen 3Gen 4Gen 5Feature
Subject 1AA1  T
Subject 2AA1    F
Subject 3BB3    T
Subject 4..    T
Subject 5    F
Subject 6    T
Subject 7     F
Subject 8     T


Wizwhy can reveal, within a short time, rules such as:


(1)  The value of Gen 1 is AA1 and the value of Gen 4 is BB2


(2)  The value of Gen 2 is CC3 and the value of Gen 3 is DD4 and the value of Gen 5 is EE5


(3)  The value of Gen 6 is FF6


There is 90% probability that the feature (of the dependent variable) is T;

AND IF all the above-mentioned conditions (together) do not hold,

THEN there is 80% probability that the feature A does not hold.


Such a rule explains All the data (contrary to if-then rules that explain only some of the data).

There is no size limitation – neither to the number of fields nor is the number of records limited.
