Two different approaches to dealing with probabilistic knowledge are examined -models and inductive inference. Examples of the first are: influence diagrams [1], Bayesian networks [2], log-linear models [3, 4]. Examples of the second are: games-against nature [5, 6] varieties of maximum-entropy methods [7, 8, 9], and the author's min-score induction [10].… (More)

The product expansion of conditional prob abilities for belief nets is not maximum en tropy. This appears to deny a desirable kind of assurance for the model. However, a kind of guarantee that is almost as strong as max imum entropy can be derived. Surprisingly, a variant model also exhibits the guarantee, and for many cases obtains a higher perfor… (More)

The form and justification of inductive inference rules depend strongly on the representation of uncertainty. This paper examines one generic representation, namely, incomplete information. The notion can be formalized by presuming that the relevant probabilities in a decision problem are known only to the extent that they belong to a class K of probability… (More)

An inductive logic can be formulated in which the elements are not propositions or probability distributions, but information systems. The logic is complete for information systems with binary hypotheses, i.e., it applies to all such systems. It is not complete for information systems with more than two hypotheses, but applies to a subset of such systems.… (More)

In a previous publication [1] several Delphi studies are reported using respondent groups to identify and estimate linear weights for those aspects of experience, which they judged to be important in determining the quality of life or sense of well-being of an individual. The procedure was first to ask each respondent to list a certain number of aspects of… (More)
