A Consistency-Based Model for Belief Change: Preliminary Report [article]

James Delgrande, Torsten Schaub
2000 arXiv   pre-print
The most general formulation of our approach is flexible enough to express other approaches to revision and update, the merging of knowledge bases, and the incorporation of static and dynamic integrity  ...  Using a maximization process, we assume the languages are the same insofar as consistently possible. Lastly, we express the resultant knowledge base in a single language.  ...  Lastly a minor modification to Definition 1 allows one to use the framework to capture the merging of knowledge bases.  ...

Merging Locally Correct Knowledge Bases: A Preliminary Report [article]

Paolo Liberatore
2002 arXiv   pre-print
Belief integration methods are often aimed at deriving a single and consistent knowledge base that retains as much as possible of the knowledge bases to integrate.  ...  The rationale behind this approach is the minimal change principle: the result of the integration process should differ as less as possible from the knowledge bases to integrate.  ...  The work reported here is still preliminary, as the properties of merging in the new models have not yet been fully investigated (comments and suggestions are welcome.)  ...

Answering Why and How questions with respect to a frame-based knowledge base: a preliminary report

Chitta Baral, Nguyen Ha Vo, Shanshan Liang, Marc Herbstritt
2012 International Conference on Logic Programming  
In this paper we explore answering why and how questions with respect to a frame-based knowledge base and give algorithms and ASP (answer set programming) implementation to answer two classes of questions  ...  and "Why is X important to Y?"  ...  In general, although there is a large body of knowledge bases that use the frame based approach [8] , there hasn't been much research on how to use the knowledge encoded in frames declaratively, especially  ...

On Minimal Change in Evolving Multi-Context Systems (Preliminary Report) [article]

Ricardo Gonçalves and Matthias Knorr and João Leite
2015 arXiv   pre-print
Some recent approaches, among them evolving Multi-Context Systems (eMCSs), extend mMCSs by allowing not only the ability to integrate knowledge represented in heterogeneous KR formalisms, but at the same  ...  time to both react to, and reason in the presence of commonly temporary dynamic observations, and evolve by incorporating new knowledge.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS We would like to thank the referees for their comments, which helped improve this paper considerably.

Computing Argumentation in Polynomial Number of BDD Operations: A Preliminary Report [chapter]

Yuqing Tang, Timothy J. Norman, Simon Parsons
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we propose a binary decision diagram (BDD) approach to argumentation-based reasoning.  ...  Many advances in argumentation theory have been made, but the exponential complexity of argumentation-based reasoning has made it impractical to apply argumentation theory.  ...  Governments are authorized to reproduce and distribute reprints for Government purposes notwithstanding any copyright notation hereon.  ...
