Comparing strengths of beliefs explicitly

S. Ghosh, D. de Jongh
2012 Logic Journal of the IGPL  
Moreover, it assists in studying the properties of the concept of greater strength of belief itself.  ...  A heavy part is played in our investigations by the relationship between the standard plausibility ordering of the worlds and the strength of belief ordering.  ...  Plausibility Comparing the strength of beliefs explicitly has its various advantageous applications.  ...

A pragmatic account of the weak evidence effect [article]

Samuel A. Barnett, Robert D. Hawkins, Thomas L. Griffiths
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We often seek to persuade by arguing in favor of a particular view. Persuasion raises a number of challenges for classical accounts of belief updating, as information cannot be taken at face value.  ...  absence of stronger evidence.  ...  Fitting anchor-and-adjust models to empirical data We compare our RSA model to several anchor-and-adjust (A&A) models, where individuals compare the strength of new evidence u against a reference point  ...

Pragmatic Interests and Imprecise Belief

Brad Armendt
2013 Philosophy of Science  
Does the strength of a particular belief depend upon the significance we attach to it?  ...  So the question is about the nature of belief states, as we understand them, or as we think a theory should model them.  ...  A characteristic of a synchronic belief state that yields, in the presence of one set of stakes, belief of one strength, and in the presence of different stakes, belief of another strength.  ...

2013 Law and Human Behavior  
Both studies found a reasonable degree of correspondence in observed belief change resulting from verbal and numeric formats.  ...  In Experiment 1 (N ϭ 494), participants read a summary of a larceny trial containing inculpatory expert testimony in which evidence strength (low, moderate, high) and presentation method (verbal, numerical  ...  For example, in the high-strength numerical evidence condition, participants interpreted a statement that explicitly included the LR of 495,000 by using an ILR of 1.4.  ...

A Probabilistic Reasoning Environment [article]

Kathryn Blackmond Laskey
2013 arXiv   pre-print
The system is designed to facilitate not just propagation of beliefs and assimilation of evidence, but also the dynamic process of constructing a belief network, evaluating its adequacy, and revising it  ...  This knowledge is used to build a set of second-level arguments, which are structured for efficient recapture of the knowledge used to construct them.  ...  The probability calculus is a coherent, logically sound way of chaining and combining probabilistic rule and belief strengths.  ...
