This paper proposes a new method to estimate the class membership probability of the cases classified by a Decision Tree. This method provides smooth class probabilities estimate, without any modification of the tree, when the data are numerical. It applies a posteriori and doesn't use additional training cases. It relies on the distance to the decision(More)
This paper proposes a new method to rank the cases classified by a decision tree. The method applies a posteriori without modification of the tree and doesn't use additional training cases. It consists in computing the distance of the cases to the decision boundary induced by the decision tree, and to rank them according to this geometric score. When the(More)
In this paper, we introduce our current research project aimed at computer-based support for participatory management of protected areas, in order to promote biodiversity conservation and social inclusion. Its applicative objective is to help various stakeholders (e.g., environmentalist NGOs, communities , tourism operators, public agencies, and so on) to(More)
Multi-agent systems (MAS) represent an effective approach for designing and constructing collaborative applications, designed as set of autonomous entities, named agents, which interact and coordinate. Some example of references on multi-agent systems are: [1], [2] [3]. Although multi-agent systems provide an effective approach for decentralized(More)
In the framework of Decision Support Systems, mathematical viability theory can be used to classify the states and the trajectories of a dynamical system evolving in a set of desirable states. Since obtaining this viability theory output is a complex and computationally intensive task, we propose in this article to consider a compact representation of this(More)
This paper proposes a new algorithm to compute the resilience of a social system or an ecosystem when it is defined in the framework of the mathematical viability theory. It is applied to the problem of language coexistence: Although bilingual societies do exist, many languages have disappeared and some seem endangered presently. Mathematical models of(More)
