|Haenni, Rolf; Hartmann, Stephan (2006): Modeling Partially Reliable Information Sources: A General Approach Based On Dempster-Shafer Theory. In: Information Fusion, Vol. 7, No. 4: 361 - 379|
Combining testimonial reports from independent and partially reliable information sources is an important epistemological problem of uncertain reasoning. Within the framework of Dempster-Shafer theory, we propose a general model of partially reliable sources, which includes several previously known results as special cases. The paper reproduces these results on the basis of a comprehensive model taxonomy. This gives a number of new insights and thereby contributes to a better understanding of this important application of reasoning with uncertain and incomplete information.
