  • Interview on INS2I web site
  • Version 2.0.0 of the R package evclass has been released on CRAN. This version contains new functions to express the outputs of trained logistic regression, radial basis function or multi-layer perceptron classifiers as Dempster-Shafer mass functions. (These methods are based on an interpretation of the operations performed in neural networks as the combination of weights of evidence by Dempster's rule, see: "T. Denoeux, Logistic Regression, Neural Networks and Dempster-Shafer Theory: a New Perspective. Knowledge-Based Systems 176:54-67, 2019").
  • Version 1.0.1 of the R package evreg has been released on CRAN. This new package implements the 'Evidential Neural Network for Regression' (ENNreg) model recently introduced in Denoeux (2023a). In this model, prediction uncertainty is quantified by Gaussian random fuzzy numbers as introduced in Denoeux (2023b). The package contains functions for training the network, tuning hyperparameters by cross-validation or the hold-out method, and making predictions. It also contains utilities for making calculations with Gaussian random fuzzy numbers (such as, e.g., computing the degrees of belief and plausibility of an interval, or combining Gaussian random fuzzy numbers).
  • The 6th School on Belief Functions and their Applications took place from Oct. 27 to Nov 1 at the Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, Ishikawa, Japan. (The slides can be downloaded from the school homepage).
  • The 8th International Conference on Belief Functions will be held in Belfast, United Kingdom, on September 2-4, 2024.
