G. Corani, A. Benavoli, J. Demsar

Naive Credal Classifier

The open source implementation of the naive credal classifier is the JNCC2.

Credal Model Averaging

The R implementation of credal model averaging for logistic regression is due to A. Mignatti. The algorithms are discussed in these two papers (link1, link2). The software and the marmot data set used in those papers is available here.
