# Surprise: an alternative qualitative uncertainty model

@inproceedings{Ibrahim2010SurpriseAA, title={Surprise: an alternative qualitative uncertainty model}, author={Zina M. Ibrahim}, year={2010} }

- Published 2010

This dissertation embodies a study of the concept of surprise as a base for constructing qualitative calculi for representing and reasoning about uncertain knowledge. This document presents two functions, κ ++ and z, which construct qualitative ranks for events by obtaining the order of magnitude abstraction of the degree of surprise associated with them. The functions use natural numbers to classify events based their associated surprise and aim at providing a ranking that improves those… CONTINUE READING
