A method and apparatus for classifying an input as belonging to one of a plurality of predefined classes, comprises: (a) developing a plurality of feature values and forming a feature vector from the feature values which is representative of the input, (b) applying the feature vector to a knowledge-base comprising predictivity curves for each class of said plurality of classes, and developing a plurality of predictivity values for each feature, each predictivity value being indicative of a likelihood of the input belonging to a respective one of each of said classes based on the feature value; (c) combining the predictivity values developed for each of the features for each class to generate a total predictivity value for each class; and (d) generating a determination of class based upon the total predictivity values generated by the prior step.
