    • A consensus model for Delphi processes with linguistic terms and its application to chronic pain in neonates definition 

      Agell Jané, Núria; van Ganzewinkel,, Christ Jan; Sánchez Soler, Monica; Roselló Saurí, Llorenç; Prats Duaygues, Francesc; Andriessen, Peter (2015-10)
      Article
      Open Access
      This paper proposes a new model of consensus based on linguistic terms to be implemented in Delphi processes. The model of consensus involves qualitative reasoning techniques and is based on the concept of entropy. The ...
    • A new approach for Delphi processes based on group consensus with linguistic terms 

      Agell Jané, Núria; van Ganzewinkel,, Christ Jan; Sánchez Soler, Monica; Roselló Saurí, Llorenç; Prats Duaygues, Francesc; Andriessen, Peter (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)

      A new approach for Delphi processes including a measure of consensus based on linguistic terms is introduced in this paper. The measure of consensus involves qualitative reasoning techniques and is based on the concept ...
    • A recommender system based on group consensus 

      Roselló Saurí, Llorenç; Prats Duaygues, Francesc; Sánchez Soler, Monica; Agell Jané, Núria (2010)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      This paper presents the foundation for a new methodology for a collaborative recommender system (RS). This methodology is based on the degree of consensus of a group of users stating their preferences via qualitative ...
    • Measuring the Consensus in Group Decision by means of Qualitative Reasoning 

      Roselló Saurí, Llorenç; Prats Duaygues, Francesc; Sánchez Soler, Monica; Agell Jané, Núria (2009-11-09)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      This paper presents a mathematical framework to assess the consensus found among different evaluators who use ordinal scales in group decision-making and evaluation processes. This framework is developed on the basis of ...

      Prats Duaygues, Francesc; Roselló Saurí, Llorenç; Sánchez Soler, Monica; Agell Jané, Núria (2016-08-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      This paper models the assessments of a group of experts when evaluating different magnitudes, features or objects by using linguistic descriptions. A new general representation of linguistic descriptions is provided by ...
    • Self-organization and evolution on large computer data structures 

      Gabarró Vallès, Joaquim; Roselló Saurí, Llorenç (1998-12)
      External research report
      Open Access
      We study the long time evolution of a large data structure while inserting new items. It is implemented using a well known computer science approach based on 2-3 trees. We have seen self-organized critical behavior ...
    • Using qualitative reasoning in modelling consensus in group decision-making 

      Roselló Saurí, Llorenç; Prats Duaygues, Francesc; Sánchez Soler, Monica; Agell Jané, Núria (Jure Zabkar, Ivan Bratko, 2009)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Ordinal scales are commonly used in rating and evaluation processes. These processes usually involve group decision making by means of an experts’ committee. In this paper a mathematical framework based on the qualitative ...
