Examines the ability of an expert computer system to evaluate uncertainty within a valuation context and thus emulate the professional skill of the valuer. Shows that because property valuation programs based on regression analysis require data input for each variable, they are unable to evaluate uncertainty and hence to apply the rational judgement which enables the human valuer to produce a valuation in the light of uncertain or incomplete information.
