An attitudinal trust recommendation mechanism to balance consensus and harmony in group decision making

Jian Wu, Xue Li, Francisco Chiclana, Ronald R. Yager
2019 IEEE transactions on fuzzy systems  
This article puts forward a trust based framework for building a recommendation mechanism for consensus in group decision making with interval-valued intuitionistic fuzzy information.  ...  Combining the HD index and the consensus index, a sensitivity analysis with attitudinal parameter is proposed to verify the rationality of the proposed attitudinal trust recommendation mechanism.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The authors are very grateful to the anonymous referees for their valuable comments and suggestions to improve considerably the quality of this paper.  ...

A.S. Karthik Kannan, S. Appavu alias Balamurugan, S. Sasikala
2021 IEEE Access

Human Swarm Problem Solving [chapter]

2021 Cultural-Historical Perspectives on Collective Intelligence  
Although individual behavior varies, the predictive value of statistical models suggest the presence of unique mechanisms at a group level (Sumpter, ).  ...  When operating in large groups, these swarms are together able to solve far more complex problems than a single of these individuals can do alone (Bonabeau, Dorigo, & Theraulaz, ; Corne et al.,   ...  . Decision Threshold Methods Decision threshold methods attempt to reach consensus by following a response threshold rule. This can primarily be done in two different ways.  ...

A Simulation-Based Approach to Understanding the Dynamics of Innovation Implementation

Nelson P. Repenning
2002 Organization science (Providence, R.I.)  
In particular, despite the considerable commonality of structure 2 (e.g. variables and linkages) found in the various models, theorists have reached little consensus concerning their consequent dynamic  ...  With this in mind, this paper offers two contributions. First, working building on the existing literature, I synthesize a model describing the dynamics of innovation implementation.  ...  While the diversity and lack of consensus in organization theory has alternatively been lamented and praised, a dynamic feedback-oriented approach to analyzing existing theoretical frameworks may reveal  ...
