Application Of Referee Functions To The Vehicle-Born Improvised Explosive Device Problem

Frederic Dambreville
2011 Zenodo  
This solution is based on a modelling by belief functions, and involves the construction of a combination rule dedicated to this problem.  ...  We propose a solution to the Vehicle-Born Improvised Explosive Device problem.  ...  There has already been a proposal for a belief-based approach to VBIED [22] , and our approach will be inspired from this work.  ...

INFORMATION STRUCTURES IN BELIEF REVISION [chapter]

Communication Attitudes: A Formal Approach to Ostensible Intentions, and Individual and Group Opinions

Matthias Nickles, Felix Fischer, Gerhard Weiss
2006 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
In this work, we propose communication attitudes in form of dynamic, revisable ostensible beliefs (or opinions) and ostensible intentions as foundational means for the logical, external description of  ...  Hence, although the description of an agent in terms of her beliefs, intentions and desires can be unsurpassably powerful, it comes to its limits in such scenarios.  ...  A Dynamic Logic with Modalities for Opinions and Ostensible Intentions In the following, we suggest Propositional Dynamic Communication Attitude Logic (pDCAL) as an extension of Propositional Dynamic Logic  ...

Logics for modelling collective attitudes [article]

Daniele Porello
2017 arXiv   pre-print
The proposed logics for modelling collective attitudes are based on a substructural propositional logic that allows for circumventing inconsistent outcomes.  ...  Individual and collective propositional attitudes, such as beliefs, desires, obligations, are then modelled by means of minimal modalities to ensure a number of basic principles.  ...  A closely related approach is [14] , the authors use judgment aggregation for modelling group attitudes by relying on (classical) modal logics of beliefs and goals.  ...

Propositional or non-propositional attitudes?

Sean Crawford
2013 Philosophical Studies  
Propositionalism is the view that intentional attitudes, such as belief, are relations to propositions.  ...  Jubien (2001) argues powerfully against propositions and sketches some interesting positive proposals, based on Russell's multiple relation theory of judgment, about how to accommodate "propositional phenomena  ...  But that logical framework was required because belief-properties were fusions of attitude and content.  ...

On the Propositional Attitudes

Keith Coleman
1991 Auslegung a Journal of Philosophy  
The trouble with the fusion theory of the propositional attitudes is that it does not satisfy this criterion.  ...  II Quinc has contended that at least for the propositional attitudes of believing, desiring, and striving there are two different modes in which one could be said to have such an attitude. 6 These correspond  ...

Agents in Approximate Environments [chapter]

Barbara Dunin-Kęplicz, Andrzej Szałas
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Such an approach is suitable for specifying and verifying many subtle aspects of agents' informational and motivational attitudes. However, in this chapter we make a shift in a perspective.  ...  The starting point of this research is the multimodal approach to modeling multiagent systems, especially Beliefs, Goals and Intention systems.  ...  Acknowledgments We are grateful to the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study (NIAS) for providing an opportunity to write the first version of this chapter.  ...

Substructural epistemic logics

Igor Sedlár
2015 Journal of Applied Non-Classical Logics  
The article introduces substructural epistemic logics of belief supported by evidence.  ...  The logics combine normal modal epistemic logics (implicit belief) with distributive substructural logics (available evidence).  ...  The author wishes to thank two anonymous reviewers for comments on previous versions of the article.  ...

Truthmaker semantics for natural language: Attitude verbs, modals, and intensional transitive verbs

Friederike Moltmann
2020 Theoretical Linguistics  
It develops a truthmaker semantics for attitude reports and deontic modals based on an ontology of attitudinal and modal objects and on a semantic function of clauses as predicates of such objects.  ...  The paper also presents new motivations for 'object-based truthmaker semantics' from intensional transitive verbs such as need, look for, own, and buy and gives an outline of their semantics based on a  ...  Acknowledgments: I would like to thank Kit Fine for numerous conversations on the topic of this paper, and the editor Hans-Martin Gaertner for detailed comments on an earlier version of this paper.  ...

What is an Assumption?

Steve Fuller
1994 Informal Logic

These BDI agents are empowered with cognitive capabilities in order to interact with others agents.  ...  They are also able to adapt to the environment changes and to the information coming from other agents.  ...  They used a graded BDI agent model based on multi-context systems to deal with information uncertainty and graded notions of beliefs, desires and intentions, and a modal many-valued logic approach for  ...
