Pulcinella: A General Tool for Propagating Uncertainty in Valuation Networks

  title={Pulcinella: A General Tool for Propagating Uncertainty in Valuation Networks},
  author={Alessandro Saffiotti and Elisabeth Umkehrer},
We present PULCinella and its use in comparing uncertainty theories. PULCinella is a general tool for Propagating Uncertainty based on the Local Computation technique of Shafer and Shenoy. It may be specialized to different uncertainty theories: at the moment, Pulcinella can propagate probabilities, belief functions, Boolean values, and possibilities. Moreover, Pulcinella allows the user to easily define his own specializations. To illustrate Pulcinella, we analyze two examples by using each of… CONTINUE READING
