[zur Übersicht]
Dr. Boro Kumova

Dempster-Shafer is a popular evidence theory that allows for plausible reasoning with belief values, which are associated with a specific item of information. It creates a belief system for reasoning with the uncertain of the information. It may be applied to ontologies, for resolving inconsistencies that were introduced by new added assertions. For instance confidence values that are associated with assertions, may serve as evidences, ie belief values, and the belief system can be applied for resolving such an inconsistency
