About some problems related to collective expertise

Authors: N. Davidova, V.I. Levcenco, Yu.N. Pechersky


The collective process of assessment of difficult objects and situations is based, as it is well known, on using of people-experts as measuring instruments. Following this terminology, we should take the selection of suitable instruments as elements of collective expertise, their pre-tuning and coordination, selection of measuring scales, measurement execution by itself, rejection of some instruments according to the results of measurements, also revelation of credible final result by comparing the displayed data of separate instruments.
In spite of the effectiveness of the above shown analogy, it is not, of course, entirely correct. Imperfection of this comparison is revealed particularly while trying the computer to automatize the process of collective expertise. The goal of this article is in determination of possible limits of computer supporting of collective expertise, also in analysis of some paradoxes and contradictions that are met on different stages of the expertise.
For the future there will be taken into consideration some restrictions.
