Quoc Viet Hung Nguyen, Kai Zheng, Matthias Weidlich, Bolong Zheng, Hongzhi Yin, Thanh Tam Nguyen, Bela Stantic
2018 2018 IEEE 34th International Conference on Data Engineering (ICDE)  
In this paper, we propose techniques to recommend data ranges for what-if analysis, which capture not only data regularities, but also the trade-off between conflicting goals.  ...  To avoid an exploration of all possible combinations of parameter values, efficient what-if analysis calls for a partitioning of parameter values into data ranges and a unified representation of the obtained  ...  A METHOD FOR DATA RANGE PARTITIONING BASED ON SKYLINES This section instantiates the problem of data range partitioning for what-if analysis with conflicting goals.  ...

Goals and goal orientation in decision support systems for ecosystem management

D Nute, G Rosenberg, S Nath, B Verma, H.M Rauscher, M.J Twery, M Grove
2000 Computers and Electronics in Agriculture  
We explore a goal-oriented as opposed to a problem-oriented approach to DSS development for ecosystem management.  ...  Identifying and resolving conflicts between goals, testing current or projected situations for goal satisfaction, and problem identification all require a robust model of the goal structure for the intended  ...  But the first DFC conflicts with the second goal and the second DFC conflicts with the first goal. This conflict will go undiscovered if we only look for conflicts at the DFC level.  ...

Goals as Reference Points

Chip Heath, Richard P. Larrick, George Wu
1999 Cognitive Psychology  
We argue that goals serve as reference points and alter outcomes in a manner consistent with the value function of Prospect Theory (Kahneman & Tversky, 1979; Tversky & Kahneman, 1992) .  ...  We also use the value function to explain previous empirical results in the goal literature on affect, effort, persistence, and performance.  ...  The authors thank Hal Arkes, Robyn Dawes, Rich Gonzalez, Dale Griffin, Joshua Klayman, George Loewenstein, Ann McGill, and John Payne for helpful comments on earlier drafts.  ...

Maurice E. Stucke
2011 Social Science Research Network  
In this current economic climate, the United States is ripe for a new antitrust policy cycle.
