It required several important extensions to BELIEF, particularly the ability to store second-order models and perform the Monte Carlo algorithm described in Chapters 11 and 12. All of the examples worked in this book were explored with the BELIEF package.

Fuzzy sets, however, are models for imprecision (specifically the imprecision of naturallanguage) rather than uncertainty. Because most of our models for the generation of data involve uncertainty (probability), fuzzy models are more difficult to update than probability or belief function models. 2 In risk assessment, we would like to have precise models of uncertain events. This makes probabilities the preferred model, with belief functions an alternative in the case of imprecise information.
