COMPARISON OF THE NEW IMPROVED COMBINATION APPROACH THAT DEAL WITH CONFLICT DATA WITH YAGER’S SOLUTION APPROACH
Dempster-Shafer evidence theory is the most effective approach to process imprecise and incomplete information. But Dempster’s combination rule can not deal with conflicting data and can lead to illogical results. That’s why the combination of conflicting bodies of evidence is one of the most difficult problems. Yager’s solution approach can process conflicting data, but correlation among evidences is not taken into account. It was proposed a new combination method, that uses correlation among different bodies of evidence and give accurate results.
