Christoph Werner, Tim Bedford, Roger M. Cooke, Anca M. Hanea, Oswaldo Morales-Nápoles
2017 European Journal of Operational Research  
Therefore this paper offers a systematic review of the current literature on eliciting dependence.  ...  From this, guidance about the strategy for dependence assessment is given and gaps in the existing research are identified to determine future directions for structured methods to elicit dependence.  ...  However, a complete 45 and systematic way of comparing different dependence parameters as elicited quantities, and reflecting their use in dependence models in the form of a literature review has been  ...

The use of contextual priors and kinematic information during anticipation in sport: toward a Bayesian integration framework

N. Viktor Gredin, Daniel T. Bishop, A. Mark Williams, David P. Broadbent
2020 International Review of Sport and Exercise Psychology  
In this paper, we propose that researchers interested in anticipation in sport could adopt a Bayesian model for probabilistic inference as an overarching framework.  ...  While the body of literature in this area continues to grow exponentially, researchers have yet to develop an overarching theoretical framework that can predict and explain anticipatory behaviour and provide  ...  This review provides a brief overview of the current trends in the sport anticipation literature and proposes that, in future, researchers could adopt Bayesian models for probabilistic inference as an  ...

An introduction to prior information derived from probabilistic judgements: elicitation of knowledge, cognitive bias and herding

Michelle C. Baddeley, Andrew Curtis, Rachel Wood
2004 Geological Society Special Publication  
This paper reviews the causes of bias and error inherent in prior information derived from the probabilistic judgements of people.  ...  As a result, future judgements are bootstrapped from, and hence biased by, both the heuristics employed and prior opinion.  ...  This would be another direction for fruitful and useful future research. Expert elicitation techniques (methods of interrogating experts for information -see below) address these issues.  ...
