Dealing with Uncertainty in Situation Assessment: towards a Symbolic Approach [article]

Charles Castel, Corine Cossart, Catherine Tessier
2013 arXiv   pre-print
The emphasis is then put on purely symbolic uncertainties: it is shown that they can be dealt with within a purely symbolic framework resulting from a transposition of classical numerical estimation tools  ...  The situation assessment problem is considered, in terms of object, condition, activity, and plan recognition, based on data coming from the real-word em via various sensors.  ...  Hints to deal with such symbolic conjunction uncertainties will be given in the sequel.  ...

From kinematics to symbolics for situation and threat assessment

W.T. Johnson, I.W. Dall
1999 1999 Information, Decision and Control. Data and Information Fusion Symposium, Signal Processing and Communications Symposium and Decision and Control Symposium. Proceedings (Cat. No.99EX251)  
Aircraft move about in a situation not randomly, but rather for a purpose and with an intent.  ...  A historical and model free description of the objects in a situation can reveal their purpose and intent as expressed by, and realised in, their tracking behaviour.  ...  Future work It is planned in the near future to utilise the ontology described here for Situation Assessment using in a Case Based Reasoning approach in ATTITUDE.  ...

Cooperative situation assessment in a maritime scenario

Alessandro Farinelli, Daniele Nardi, Roberta Pigliacampo, Mirco Rossi, Giuseppe Paolo Settembre
2012 International Journal of Intelligent Systems  
In this paper, we propose a multi-agent based approach to situation assessment, where agents cooperate by sharing local information to reach a common and coherent assessment of situations.  ...  In this context, collaboration among the many actors involved in the situation assessment process is critical in order to achieve a prompt reaction as needed in the operational scenario.  ...  The authors would like to thank Luca Izzotti and Francesco Canini for their support in the earlier stages of the project.  ...

Airport Investment Risk Assessment Under Uncertainty

Elena M. Capitanul, Carlos A. Nunes Cosenza, Walid El Moudani, Felix Mora Camino
2014 Zenodo  
This communication puts forward a new approach for airport investment risk assessment.  ...  The approach takes explicitly into account the degree of uncertainty in activity levels prediction and proposes milestones for the different stages of the project for minimizing risk.  ...  Fuzzy dual programming has been introduced recently [10] to provide a general framework for dealing with uncertainty approached through the fuzzy dual formalism.  ...

Application of Quantum Physics Assumptions for Risk Assessment [chapter]

Marek Rozycki
2020 Risk Assessment [Working Title]  
The current application of new assumptions for risk assessment in the case of road infrastructure allows for the thesis that a change in the approach to risk assessment is necessary in all areas related  ...  Risk assessment is the result of assumptions of people performing it. Therefore, its use may be limited, because in principle it is difficult to predict events that we are not aware of.  ...  the aptness of the risk assessment method, but does not bring us any closer to calculating the actual risk in a particular situation.  ...
