Measuring Disagreement Among Knowledge Bases [chapter]

Nico Potyka
2018 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
When combining beliefs from different sources, often not only new knowledge but also conflicts arise. In this paper, we investigate how we can measure the disagreement among sources.  ...  We start our investigation with disagreement measures that can be induced from inconsistency measures in an automated way.  ...  Conclusions and Future Work In this paper, we investigated approaches to measuring disagreement among knowledge bases.  ...

Applying the Repgrid Technique to Resolve Cognitive Conflicts Among Experts During Knowledge Capture

Ananth Chiravuri, Derek Nazareth, K. Ramamurthy
2007 2007 40th Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS'07)  
There is an urgent need to understand and resolve conflict that may occur among multiple experts during the knowledge acquisition process so that it remains less of a "bottleneck".  ...  Our study addresses this need by examining the effectiveness of the Repertory Grid technique (Repgrid) in resolving cognitive conflicts among multiple experts in virtual teams during the process of knowledge  ...  We calculated the degree of agreement/disagreement using three measures.  ...

Cognitive Conflict and Consensus Generation in Virtual Teams During Knowledge Capture: Comparative Effectiveness of Techniques

Ananth Chiravuri, Derek Nazareth, K. Ramamurthy
2011 Journal of Management Information Systems  
Also, although previous studies have attempted to describe and measure disagreement and therefore cognitive conflict among experts, they have not been able to evolve a measure for disagreement for rating  ...  For the purposes of this study, we define cognitive conflict in terms of disagreement among experts and measure it accordingly.  ...

Comparing the Conceptual Systems of Experts

Brian R. Gaines, Mildred L. G. Shaw
1989 International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
The knowledge to be acquired for the development of knowledge based systems is often distributed across a group of experts rather than available for elicitation from a single expert.  ...  This paper describes a computer-supported methodology for knowledge acquisition from groups in which the conceptual frameworks of different experts are compared in a way that makes such disagreements overt  ...  We are grateful to many colleagues at the knowledge acquisition workshops for discussions which have highlighted many of the issues raised in this paper.  ...

Too Liberal, Too Conservative, or About Right? The Implications of Ideological Dissatisfaction for Supreme Court Legitimacy

James L. Gibson, Michael J. Nelson
2015 Social Science Research Network  
We first show that ideological dissatisfaction has practically no impact on legitimacy, irrespective of how dissatisfaction is measured.  ...  Unfortunately, serious measurement issues cloud the literature. Here, we reconsider these questions using a nationally representative sample.  ...  We measure knowledge with five conventional items.  ...

Multi-class Ensemble-Based Active Learning [chapter]

Christine Körner, Stefan Wrobel
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
To determine the utility of a candidate training instance, the disagreement about its class value among the ensemble members is used.  ...  We show that margins outperform the other disagreement measures on three of four active learning strategies.  ...  All four strategies choose training instances based on the disagreement among their ensemble members.  ...
