Short summary
It is necessary to analyze the weight of multiple factors in the risk consequence of dam break. When the number of influencing factors exceeds 10, the analysis of its weight will become very difficult. In this paper, the cloud model, an artificial intelligence calculation method, is used to transform the subjective factors into a large number of data for the improved entropy weight method. The result is objective and reasonable, providing a new way of analyzing multi-factor weights.
