Abstract

We report on the results of Workgroup 1 on "Imprecision, Diversity and Uncertainty". We set the scene by elaborating on where uncertainty comes from and what the ground truth is. In real world applications, the data observed may not be as expected: they may violate constraints, or, more generally, disagree with the anticipated model of the world. This leads to two orthogonal cases: The data may be erroneous, i.e. they must be corrected. Or, the model may outdated and must be adjusted to the data. After elaborating on this fundamental distinction, we address the issues of measuring uncertainty and exploiting uncertainty in real applications. We conclude with a list of challenges that should be addressed when dealing with uncertainty.
