Expert System for Ice Hockey Game Prediction: Data Mining with Human Judgment

Wei Gu, Thomas Saaty, Rozann Whitaker
Journal: International Journal of Information Technology & Decision Making
This paper describes an expert system to predict National Hockey League (NHL) game outcome. A new method based on both data and judgments is used to estimate the hockey game performance. There are many facts and judgments that could influence an outcome. We employed the support vector machine to ...

Exploring the interface between hierarchies, multiple objectives and fuzzy sets

Thomas Saaty
Journal: Fuzzy sets and systems
The complexity of experience acquired through our senses and as interpreted by our mind, is fuzzy and must remain so as long as the meaning of things change as they are embedded in larger or different contexts to relate them to new ideas and new experiences. Here we give a method for measuring th...

Modeling unstructured decision problems—the theory of analytical hierarchies

Thomas Saaty
Journal: Mathematics and computers in simulation
Quantitative modeling of unstructured decision problems with social implications is new and challenging and has pressing needs. A new approach to scaling using largest eigenvalues and reciprocal matrices and the effect of inconsistent judgment are introduced and relevant theory discussed. In this...

Foresight—Insight—Hindsight

James C. Frauenthal, Thomas Saaty
Journal: Two-Year College Mathematics Journal
Many mathematical models which attempt to describe problems stated in words appear trivial in hindsight. This is the case because the crucial insight needed to formulate the model is divulged by the structure of the model. It would be desirable to be able to teach this critical, inductive step in...
