Abstract for: A Tool for Enhanced Causal Discovery and Understanding: System Dynamics Modeling Causal Miner (SDM-CMiner)

The System Dynamics Modeling Causal Miner (SDM-CMiner) is a prototype software tool designed for exploring causal relationships in system dynamics models using data mining processes and techniques. Using a causal model or map, a set of discovery rules, and a corpus of documents, the SDM-CMiner tool attempts to uncover evidence (or the lack thereof) for the causal relationships present in the model or map that can be found in the corpus of documents provided. The tool is currently under development and will be made available to the community as soon as it is thoroughly tested and verified.
