Human decision making and information fusion: Extending the concept of decision support
University of Skövde, School of Humanities and Informatics.
2007 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

ecision making is one of the most important human abilities. We utilise it from the very small decision of choosing a lunch restaurant to the much more complex decision situations involving heterogeneous groups of people cooperating towards a common goal. Although, the problem is still the same; we perceive a lot of information from many different sources all around us, enabling us to access a large quantity of information, yet, somehow we have difficulties to make a decision from that information. Not surprisingly, this problem will not magically disappear or become any easier, considering the current development of advanced technology, enabling us to access even more information, in real-time. This report address the new challenges put on decision making where you are to handle and make sense of a vast array of information from different sources. The report explores the use of information fusion to support this specific issue. The report identifies the limitations of current research concerning the intersection between decision making, decision support and information fusion, and makes suggestion for future research.
