Epistemic Utility Estimation With Valuational Convexity

Venceslav Kafedziski, Darryl Morrell

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We address the problem of parameter estimation using Isaac Levi's epistemological framework of rational decision making; the resulting estimators accurately reflect the decision agent's knowledge, willingness to risk error, and values. In this paper, previous results are extended to include valuational convexity, yielding estimators that address conflicted values.
