Contextual Abduction and its Complexity Issues

Emmanuelle-Anna Dietz Saldanha, Steffen Hölldobler, Tobias Philipp
2017 International Conference on Logic Programming and Non-Monotonic Reasoning  
In this paper, we investigate the effects of this extension and present some surprising results about the complexity issues of contextual abduction.  ...  In everyday life, it seems that we prefer some explanations for an observation over others because of our contextual background knowledge.  ...  Acknowledgements We are grateful to the constructive comments and ideas of the three reviewers. The Graduate Academy at TU Dresden supported Tobias Philipp.  ...

The Complexity of Contextual Abduction in Human Reasoning Tasks

Emmanuelle-Anna Dietz Saldanha, Steffen Hölldobler, Tobias Philipp
2017 Young Scientists' International Workshop on Trends in Information Processing  
In particular, we present some interesting results about the complexity of contextual abduction.  ...  Recently, a contextual reasoning approach has been presented, which takes into account this contextual background and allows us to specify context within the logic.  ...  Complexity of Consistency of Contextual Abductive Problems A contextual abductive problem A = P , A,O is consistent if there is an explanation for O.  ...

TABLING WITH INTERNED TERMS ON CONTEXTUAL ABDUCTION

Muhammad Okky Ibrohim, Ari Saptawijaya
2019 Jurnal Ilmu Komputer dan Informasi  
Abduction (also called abductive reasoning) is a form of logical inference which starts with an observation and is followed by finding the best explanations.  ...  In this paper, we improve the tabling in contextual abduction technique with an advanced tabling feature of XSB Prolog, namely tabling with interned terms.  ...  Perkasa for his help in dealing with implementation issues.  ...

Towards a generalized model of diagnostic behaviour

E.T. Keravnou, L. Johnson
1989 Knowledge-Based Systems  
The diagnostic model, however, has a second very important function: it forms part of a well founded and  ...  Its expression at more concrete levels is task dependent.  ...  Contextual abductive steps function to piece together the components of more complex and more diagnostically complete (global) hypotheses.  ...

The Availability Heuristic and Inference to the Best Explanation

Michael J. Shaffer, Romanian Academy - Iasi Branch
2019 Logos & Episteme: An International Journal of Epistemology  
With this end in mind, a dynamic and contextual version of the erotetic model of explanation sufficient to ground this response is presented and defended.  ...  This allows us to search for deeper and more complex explanations as context changes and we are able to contend with greater complexity or become aware of new theories and evidence.  ...  This issue raises an aspect of explanation that has not received as much attention as it deserves from philosophers of science.  ...

THE QUEST FOR DEVELOPMENT TRANSFORMATION IN NORTHERN UGANDA

Eric Awich Ochen
2018 Chemchemi International Journal of Humanities and Social Sciences  
This paper discusses the dynamics of development agencies' support to conflict-affected northern Uganda in the period between 2006 and 2012, and its implications for post-conflict recovery and development  ...  It is posited that donor priorities, interests and preferences other than government and non–state actors' interventions and situation of the target groups seem to be the driving force behind programme  ...  It is these challenges and development issues that this paper explores.  ...

They insisted on contextualized and nuanced represen- tations and eschewed sweeping general conclusions, drawing attention to complexity and contingency.  ...  I found it very flawed on the methodological issues and I found that the quotes she gives in her report, it talks a lot about the circumstances of these — well not even circumstances — it tells a lot about  ... 

Qualitative/Quantitative Methodological Dilemma in Accounting Research: Whence and Whither?

Mostafa Kayed Mohamed, Abdelmoneim Bahyeldin Mohamed Metwally
2019 الفکر المحاسبى  
Findings The paper concludes that middle range solutions such as abductive reasoning and triangulation of both theory and methods increased the debate between the two blocks and despite of these debates  ...  It reports on how and why there is a debate regarding most relevant approach in the accounting research "quantitative and qualitative"; what are the solutions proposed; how the proposed solutions are affecting  ...  I also clarified certain issues related to the use of abduction, of these issues the emic/etic perspectives and how to combine them for better validation.  ...
