  1. 1. Optimal strategies and information in foraging theory

    University dissertation from Department of Ecology, Lund University

    Author : Emma Sernland; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; information use; Bayesian foraging; public information; prior information; negative binomial distribution; group foraging; decision-making; information updating; leaving strategy; Ecology; Ekologi;

    Abstract : In this thesis, I present both theoretical and empirical work where we have studied how humans and animals use information in situations where they need to continually update their information on the density of a resource. We have found that the amount of information, and the way the information is presented, are important factors for how well decisions are adapted to current circumstances. READ MORE

  3. 3. Evaluating credal set theory as a belief framework in high-level information fusion for automated decision-making

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Alexander Karlsson; Sten F. Andler; Ronnie Johansson; Lars Karlsson; Galina Rogova; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; High-level information fusion; belief framework; credal set theory; Bayesian theory; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; TECHNOLOGY Information technology; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik; Computer and Systems Science; Datalogi;

    Abstract : High-level information fusion is a research field in which methods for achieving an overall understanding of the current situation in an environment of interest are studied. The ultimate goal of these methods is to provide effective decision-support for human or automated decision-making. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Apparent Arbitrariness of Second-Order Probability Distributions

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Computer and Systems Sciences at Stockholm University

    Author : David Sundgren; Love Ekenberg; Mats Danielson; Lev Utkin; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES Statistics; computer and systems science Informatics; computer and systems science Computer and systems science; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Statistik; data- och systemvetenskap Informatik; data- och systemvetenskap Data- och systemvetenskap;

    Abstract : Adequate representation of imprecise probabilities is a crucial and non-trivial problem in decision analysis. Second-order probability distributions is the model for imprecise probabilitoes whose merits are discussed in this thesis. READ MORE
