Paolo Liberatore
2016 arXiv   pre-print
Merging beliefs requires the plausibility of the sources of the information to be merged.  ...  In spite of the apparent lack of information, something can still be inferred by a try-and-check approach: a relative reliability ordering is assumed, the merging process is performed based on it, and  ...  This results in an ordered partition of formulae, similar to that used in iterated belief revision [23] , which is in fact the same as belief merging from sources of unequal reliability [6] .  ...
