LABORATORY OF INTELLIGENT DECISION SUPPORT SYSTEMS
Head: Professor Roman Slowinski; E-mail: Slowinski@pozn1v.tup.edu.pl
Methodology and techniques of decision support with an emphasis on multi-criteria decision aid (MCDA) and knowledge-based systems (KBS).
Within MCDA framework: preference modelling, interactive procedures for multi-criteria choice, sorting and ranking, multi-objective mathematical programming in deterministic or fuzzy environment.
Within KBS framework: knowledge acquisition and representation, approximate reasoning and management of uncertainty in KBS, rough set approach, fuzzy set approach, neural networks, image processing, classification.
Applications of MCDA and KBS in: water supply system programming, agriculture, regional planning, software engineering, vibroacoustic technical diagnostics, surgery, histopathology, chemistry and finance.
