Hierarchical decision making and decision fusion

In this study, a hierarchical decision making structure possessing a decision fusion technique is proposed in order to solve decision making problems efficiently. The proposed structure mainly depends on effects of the decisions made in the lower levels to decisions in the upper levels up to an activation degree. The proposed hierarchical structure is used for detecting the fault degrees for single and multiple fault scenarios artifically generated in a four tank system. The results obtained demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed hierarchical decision making structure.


LinGraph: a graph-based automated planner for concurrent task planning based on linear logic
Kortik, Sitar; Saranlı, Uluç (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2017-10-01)
In this paper, we introduce an automated planner for deterministic, concurrent domains, formulated as a graph-based theorem prover for a propositional fragment of intuitionistic linear logic, relying on the previously established connection between intuitionistic linear logic and planning problems. The new graph-based theorem prover we introduce improves planning performance by reducing proof permutations that are irrelevant to planning problems particularly in the presence of large numbers of objects and a...
Two approaches for collective learning with language games
Gülçehre, Çağlar; Bozşahin, Hüseyin Cem; Department of Cognitive Sciences (2011)
This thesis presents a defense of the view that externalism cannot be a theoretical basis of a mentalistic causal-explanatory science, even though such a theoretical basis is implicitly or explicitly adopted by many cognitive scientists. Externalism is a theory in philosophy of mind which states that mental properties are relations between the core realizers of an individual’s mental states (such as brain states) and certain things that exist outside those realizers (such as what the content of a mental sta...
Evolving a hierarchical decision making mechanism using fuzzy logic
Beldek, Ulas; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (2008-12-01)
In this study, a new hierarchical decision-making and decision-fusion mechanism is introduced for solving decision making problems in a consistent manner. This mechanism is constructed by using a genetic algorithm. The proposed mechanism employs fuzzy logic and a performance index determined based on the performance of decision-making agents at successive hierarchical levels. The mechanism is such that the decisions in previous levels are influential on the current level decisions according to the performan...
On output independence and complementariness in rank-based multiple classifier decision systems
Saranlı, Afşar (Elsevier BV, 2001-12-01)
This study presents a theoretical analysis of output independence and complementariness between classifiers in a rank-based multiple classifier decision system in the context of the partitioned observation space theory. To enable such an analysis, an information theoretic interpretation of a rank-based multiple classifier system is developed and basic concepts from information theory are applied to develop measures for output independence and complementariness. It is shown that output independence of classi...
Multi-criteria decision making with interdependent criteria using prospect theory
Bozkurt, Ahmet; Karasakal, Esra; Department of Industrial Engineering (2007)
In this study, an integrated solution methodology for a general discrete multi-criteria decision making problem is developed based on the well-known outranking method Promethee II. While the methodology handles the existence of interdependency between the criteria, it can also incorporate the prospect theory in order to correctly reflect the decision behavior of the decision maker. A software is also developed for the application of the methodology and some applications are performed and presented.
