Abstract

This study proposes a distinction between the belief function and the credibility function in mind design – a section of artificial intelligence. We show the distinction between the credibility and belief measures first. Then we evaluate the possibility of these measures in case studies and consider the credibility and belief values of each case. This is a novel method for the evaluation of belief functions and it is shown that they satisfy the rules of current belief function axioms.
Keywords: belief measure; belief functions; credibility measure; dempster – shafer belief functions belief measure; belief functions; credibility measure; dempster – shafer belief functions
