Preference relation approach for obtaining OWA operators weights

Byeong Seok Ahn
2008 International Journal of Approximate Reasoning  
In this paper, we present a method for determining the OWA weights when (1) the preferences of some subset of alternatives over other subset of alternatives are specified in a holistic manner across all  ...  A number of approaches for obtaining the associated weights have been suggested in the academic literature.  ...  The author is also deeply indebted to Young Soon Kwak for her helpful and constructive comments. This research was supported by the Chung Ang University Research Grants in 2001.  ...

Judgment Aggregation in Abstract Dialectical Frameworks [chapter]

Richard Booth
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We generalise the family of interval aggregation methods, studied in the AF case in our previous work, to the ADF case.  ...  We look at a judgment aggregation problem in ADFs, namely the problem of aggregating a profile of complete interpretations.  ...  Thanks are due to Edmond Awad and Iyad Rahwan for earlier helping to develop some of the ideas for the restricted case of AFs, and to Johannes Wallner for some helpful comments.  ...

Confidence Assessment Framework for Safety Arguments [chapter]

Rui Wang, Jérémie Guiochet, Gilles Motet
2017 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Confidence in safety critical systems is often justified by safety arguments. The excessive complexity of systems nowadays introduces more uncertainties for the arguments reviewing.  ...  This paper proposes a framework to support the argumentation assessment based on experts' decision and confidence in the decision for the lowest level claims of the arguments.  ...  The opinion aggregation adopts a quantitative assessment method of argument confidence proposed in our previous works [19] .  ...

The Case for Utilitarian Voting

Claude Hillinger
2005 Social Science Research Network  
Specific UV rules that have been proposed are approval voting, allowing the scores 0, 1; range voting, allowing all numbers in an interval as scores; evaluative voting, allowing the scores -1, 0, 1.  ...  I challenge the relevance of the ordinal framework in which that theorem is expressed and argue that instead utilitarian, i.e. cardinal social choice theory is relevant for voting.  ...  THE COMMON SENSE ARGUMENT FOR UTILITARIAN VOTING In Section 2 I argued that voting is an instance of the aggregation of judgments.  ...

Collective argumentation: A survey of aggregation issues around argumentation frameworks

Gustavo Bodanza, Fernando Tohmé, Marcelo Auday
2017 Argument & Computation  
In particular, the question about the rationality of a collective argument choice relates this topic to Social Choice and Judgment Aggregation theories, while its associated strategic issues relate it  ...  Dung's argumentation frameworks have been applied for over twenty years to the analysis of argument justification.  ...  To solve this problem they introduce interval aggregation: consider the number of agents that vote out for an argument a, say n − and those that vote in, n + .  ...

Induced Choquet Integral Aggregation Operators with Single-Valued Neutrosophic Uncertain Linguistic Numbers and Their Application in Multiple Attribute Group Decision-Making

Shuping Zhao, Dong Wang, Liang Changyong, Wenxing Lu
2019 Zenodo  
For real decision-making problems, aggregating the attributes which have interactive or correlated characteristics by traditional aggregation operators is unsuitable.  ...  Thus, applying Choquet integral operator to approximate and simulate human subjective decision-making process, in which independence among the input arguments is not necessarily assumed, would be suitable  ...  Tan [28] proposed exponential aggregation operator of interval neutrosophic numbers for Typhoon Disaster Evaluation.  ...

Interval 2-Tuple Linguistic Distance Operators and Their Applications to Supplier Evaluation and Selection

Meng-Meng Shan, Ping Li, Hu-Chen Liu
2016 Mathematical Problems in Engineering  
These aggregation operators are very useful for the treatment of input data in the form of interval 2-tuple linguistic variables.  ...  Motivated by the ordered weighted distance (OWD) measures, in this paper, we develop some interval 2-tuple linguistic distance operators such as the interval 2-tuple weighted distance (ITWD), the interval  ...  Acknowledgments This work was supported by the National Natural Science Foundation of China (nos. 71402090 and 71671125), the Mathematical Problems in Engineering  ...

IP Scoring Rules: Foundations and Applications

Jason Konek
2019 International Symposium on Imprecise Probabilities and Their Applications  
Finally, I highlight one potential applications for IP scoring rules: IP aggregation.  ...  The mathematical foundations of imprecise probability theory (IP) have been in place for 25 years, and IP has proved successful in practice.  ...  For example, Pettigrew's expected accuracy argument for linear pooling has no analogue in the IP setting.  ...
