2009 Mobile Robotics  
Noisy sensor readings and uncontrollable factors in the operation environment as well as the internal mechanisms of the robots may have an accumulating negative effect throughout the decision making process  ...  Starting from the perception of the environment, which is the very first stage of the sense-plan-act cycle, uncertainty should be handled carefully in the localization, world modeling, and action realization  ...  Recognized objects are then used in Self Localization and World Modeling modules incorporates the information about recognized objects and make it ready for the Planner module to make decisions.  ...

A Real Options Model of Stepwise Entry Into Self-Employment

Karl Wennberg, Timothy B. Folta, Frédéric Delmar
2008 Social Science Research Network  
This paper tests a real options model of stepwise entrepreneurial entry. We distinguish between part time and full time entry among the self employed in Swedish knowledge intensive industries.  ...  However, our hypothesis that entrepreneurs use a real options heuristic shaped by the uncertainty and the irreversibility of entry received only mixed support.  ...  That is, for part time self-employed, what would make them change to full time self-employment or to exit altogether.  ...

Bridging the Gap of Abstraction for Probabilistic Decision Making on a Multi-Modal Service Robot

Sven Schmidt-Rohr, Steffen Knoop, Martin Lösch, Rüdiger Dillmann

With partially observable Markov decision processes (POMDPs) utilized for scenario level decision making, the robot is able to deal with uncertainty in both observation and environment dynamics and can  ...  This paper proposes a decision making and control supervision system for a multi-modal service robot.  ...  Also, the course of events in the real world is never completely deterministic but stochastic. Both aspects of uncertainty need to be regarded by decision making of an autonomous service robot.  ...

Voluntary leadership and the emergence of institutions for self-governance

Krister P. Andersson, Kimberlee Chang, Adriana Molina-Garzón
2020 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America  
We show that unselfish leadership actions make the biggest difference for rule creation under high levels of uncertainty, such as when the resource is in subtle decline and intragroup communication sparse  ...  We argue that voluntary local leaders play an important role in the initiation of self-governance institutions because such leaders can directly affect local users' perceived costs and benefits associated  ...  Cook, Tara Grillos, Ruth Meinzen-Dick, Emily Nocito, Andrew Phillips, and Charlie Schweik provided helpful feedback on previous versions of this paper.  ...

Secondly, the system should be made aware of the impact of its decisions over time so that it can learn from its mistakes as humans do.  ...  It leverages Dynamic Decision Networks (DDN) to deal with the presence of uncertainty and the partial observability of context information, as well as the temporal effects of the decisions.  ...  We have used probability reasoning with Bayesian networks and Decision networks [15] to tackle the real-time decision problems under uncertainty and QoC requirements of the users.  ...

When Experts Become Liabilities: Domain Experts on Boards and Organizational Failure

Juan Almandoz, András Tilcsik
2016 Academy of Management Journal  
We argue that under conditions of significant decision uncertainty, a higher proportion of domain experts on a board may detract from effective decision making and thus increase the probability of organizational  ...  We predict that the greater the level of decision uncertainty-due to rapid asset growth or operation in less predictable markets-the stronger the relationship between the proportion of banking expert directors  ...  Figures 1 and 2 display results relevant to Hypothesis 1 and Hypothesis 2a under different conditions of decision uncertainty.  ...

The effects of behavioral and outcome feedback on prudent decision-making under conditions of present and future uncertainty

Jay C. Brown
2006 Judgment and Decision Making  
Prudent decision-making decreased when both types of uncertainty were added. Further, the addition of feedback increased prudent decision-making when future uncertainty was present.  ...  Participants played a repeated game in which decisions were made under various types of uncertainty (either no uncertainty, uncertainty about the present consequences of behaviors, uncertainty about the  ...  In real life, this type of uncertainty of consequences may also be responsible for decreased levels of prudent decision-making.  ...
