Revisiting the Notion of Conflicting Belief Functions
The problem of conflict measurement between information sources knows a regain of interest. In most works related to this issue, Dempter’s rule plays a central role. In this paper, we propose to revisit conflict from a different perspective. We do not make a priori assumption about dependencies and start from the definition of conflicting sets, studying its possible extensions to the framework of belief functions.
