Encoding Information Fusion in Possibilistic Logic: A General Framework for Rational Syntactic Merging
The problem of merging multiple sources information is central in many information processing areas such as databases integration problems, multiple criteria decision making, expert opinion pooling, etc. Recently, several approaches have been proposed to merge classical propositional bases, or sets of (non-prioritized) goals. These approaches are in general semantically defined. Like in belief revision, they use priorities, generally based on Dalal’s distance, for merging the classical bases and return a new classical base as a result. An immediate consequence of the generation of a classical base is the impossibility of iterating the fusion process in a coherent way w.r.t. priorities since the underlying ordering is lost. This paper presents a general approach for fusing prioritized bases, both semantically and syntactically, when priorities are represented in the possibilistic logic framework. We show that the approaches which have been recently proposed for merging classical prop...
