Search of Method for Analyzing "Viability" of Innovative Projects

Aleksandr Rashidov, Werner Loch, Igor Shmidt

Abstract: Questions of "viability" evaluation of innovation projects are considered in this article. As a method of evaluation Hidden Markov Models are used. Problem of determining model parameters, which reproduce test data with highest accuracy are solving. For training the model statistical data on the implementation of innovative projects are used. Baum-Welch algorithm is used as a training algorithm.
