An Uncertainty Representation for Set-Valued Attributes with Hierarchical Domains
Frank Rügheimer, Rudolf Kruse.
In collected data information about
a single property may be presented
with variable resolution and focus.
The present paper describes
how hierarchically structured attribute
domains support the transfer
of knowledge between alternative
frames of discernment allowing
to flexibly serve information needs
and facilitate the processing of inhomogeneous
data. The approach is
later extended to accommodate setvalued
attributes, which have previously
been employed to represent
imprecision and have recently gained
attention in text processing, hierarchy
learning or multi-label classification.
