Possibilistic decision making in sensor systhems

  title={Possibilistic decision making in sensor systhems},

This paper considers an alternative to the Bayesian approach to decision making that is based on possibility theory. The possibilistic method uses a minimax criterion to choose the least risky action based on the preference and possibility of the outcome of an action after evaluation of the measured sensor data. The advantage of the possibilistic method when compared with the Bayesian method is that it requires only an ordinal ranking of the cost associated with each action and the uncertainty… Expand

A possibilistic graphical model for handling decision problems under uncertainty
It is shown that the computation of optimal decisions comes down to compute a normalization degree of the junction tree associated with the graph representing the fusion of agent’s beliefs and preferences. Expand

This paper gives the optimality equation for the fuzzy decision model by a fuzzy differential equation and an optimal policy and the permissible range of the decision maker's optimal expected payoffs are given for this problem. Expand
Information security risk analysis model using fuzzy decision theory
A risk analysis model for information security assessment that identifies and evaluates the sequence of events in a potential accident scenario following the occurrence of an initiating event corresponding to abuses of Information Technology systems was proposed. Expand
On the Possibilistic-Based Decision Model: Characterization of Preference Relations Under Partial Inconsistency
This paper extends the original Dubois and Prade's decision model to cope with partially inconsistent descriptions of belief states, represented by non-normalised possibility distributions, and provides axiomatic characterizations of the preference orderings induced by these utility functions.

  • 2011
This paper focuses on one-shot (one-time) decision problems, which concern the situations where a decision is experienced only once. Such one-shot decision problems are commonly encountered inExpand
Decision strategies for automated negotiation with limited knowledge
This thesis presents and investigates two decision mechanisms, an existing heuristic-based approach and a novel decision model based on multistage fuzzy decision-making, that are suitable for situations in which an agent has only limited knowledge, and proposes a mechanism for coordinating these strategies in more complex and realistic concurrent negotiation scenarios.

Qualitative possibilistic influence diagrams based on qualitative possibilistic utilities
This paper proposes a new approach for decision making under uncertainty based on influence diagrams and possibility theory and proposes an indirect evaluation method based on their transformation into possibilistic networks. Expand
Analyzing a Bipolar Decision Structure Through Qualitative Decision Theory
This paper studies the link between a bipolar decision structure called bipolar leveled framework (BLF) and the qualitative decision theory based on possibility theory and shows how the notions defined in the BLF can be translated in terms of quantitative decision theory. Expand
