IEEE Online Lecture with Prof. Luis Martinez: HOW TO MANAGE CONSENSUS PROCESSES FOR LARGE SCALE GROUP DECISIONS

Share

IEEE Online Lecture with Prof. Luis Martinez, University of Jaen (SPAIN)


ABSTRACT:

Consensus reaching processes (CRPs) provide solutions acceptable to all the experts participating in group decision problems, they are demanded in many real-life contexts. Given the variety of existing approaches to support consensus reaching processes, this talk considers two main objectives. Firstly, it revises and introduces a taxonomy that provides an overview and categorization of some existing consensus models for group decision making problems defined in a fuzzy context, taking into account the main features of each model. Secondly it discusses the performance of classical CRP models within contexts with a large number of decision makers, such as e-market places and social networks. This lecture will focus on some new requirements to the solution of consensus-based group decision making problems, such as

  • Consensus metrics for analysing performance of consensus reaching processes
  • Comprehensive minimum cost consensus reaching processes
  • Increase of convergence of the consensus process keeping decision makers sovereign
  • Monitoring tools to evaluate easily the evolution of the consensus process.
