Perceptual information is not readily captured in terms of simple truths and falsities or in terms of probabilistic estimates, when the appropriate statistical data are lacking.
Here we present our current understanding of this problem and some partial solutions. We conclude that evidential reasoning requires both a method for pooling multiple bodies of evidence to arrive at a consensus opinion and some means of drawing the appropriate conclusions from that opinion.
This paper introduces a formal method for integrating knowledge derived from a variety of sources for use in “perceptual reasoning”. The formalism is based on the “evidential propositional calculus”- a derivative of Shafer’s mathematical theory of evidence.
