Determination of a Matrix of the Dependencies Between Features Based on the Expert Knowledge
In the paper, we investigate the problem of replacing long-lasting and expensive research by expert knowledge. The proposed innovative method is a far-reaching improvement of the AHP method. Through the use of a slider, the proposed approach can be used by experts who have not yet met the AHP method or do not feel comfortable when using classic approach related to words and numbers. In the series of experiments, we confirm the efficiency of the method in a modeling of electricity consumption in teleinformatics and in an application of biodiversity to urban planning.
