About

An uncertaintist is someone who studies decision and inference under incomplete and possibly inaccurate knowledge. That covers a wide variety of subject matter. So does this blog.

Paul Snow writes here. He offers fine handcrafted database and statistical items for a discerning clientele from his workshop in central New Hampshire. Paul researches the formal management of inference and decision by people and machines. He has developed a survival semantics for expected utility decisionmaking, probabilistic semantics for “unprobabilistic” calculi like possibility,  necessity, and nonmontonic logics and a linear programming semantics for  Łukasiewicz (or Zadeh “fuzzy”) logic. Since 2009, he has served on the editorial board of the journal Information Fusion.
