A Psychology Expert System to Determine the Level of Stress in Subjects


  •   Ali Mirzapour


As programs that imitate an expert’s behavior in a specific area, expert systems can be used, trusted and influential in different areas due to the modeling of the human’s logic and reasoning system, and similarity of the sources of knowledge used by them. In the absence of experts, the intelligent software can measure the level of stress in individuals to a relatively reliable level. The design of intelligent systems in psychological counseling is of great importance due to the impact of this field on the various areas of today's life. The present paper aims to describe how to design and implement a psychology expert system to determine the level of stress in different people using MATLAB software. As one of the most popular psychological tests to determine the level of anxiety, depression and stress in different individual, this test is conducted based on the DASS-21 test, which deduct the result depending on the rules defined and the responses received from the user and determines the level of stress of the individual.
