Performance prediction or forecasting sporting outcomes involves a great deal of insight into the particular area one is dealing with, and a considerable amount of intuition about the factors that bear on such outcomes and performances. The mathematical Theory of Evidence offers representation formalisms which grant experts a high degree of freedom when(More)
Intelligent computer systems rely on more or less complex computational entities that represent occurrences and events in the real world. Usually, such entities are formed from representational primitives called properties, attributes, features, etc. To reflect varying degrees of uncertainty, originating from human judgement and the intrinsic nature of the(More)
Decision making based on the comparison of multiple criteria of two or more alternatives, is the subject of intensive research. In many decision making situations, a single criterion consists of more than one piece of information, and therefore might be regarded as a lump of aggregated information. This paper proposes a general method for aggregating(More)
Turing’s landmark paper on computing machinery and intelligence is multifaceted and has an underemphasized ethical dimension. Turing’s notion of “intelligence” and “thinking” was far more encompassing than the common anthropocentric view may suggest. We discuss a number of open and underrated problems that the common interpretation of the Turing test as a(More)
