A protocol for the elicitation of imprecise probabilities based on linear programming is applied for the case of two continuous variables. Two medical experts were elicited. The resulting convex set of probability distributions was compared with the results obtained by the application of an imprecise Dirichlet model to a data base. An indicator is introduced to assess the inferential skill of the medical experts.
Keywords. Elicitation, Imprecise Probabilities, Inferential Skill, Convex set, Imprecise Dirichlet Models.
