Non-Monotonic Reasoning and Story Comprehension [article]

Irene-Anna Diakidoy, Antonis Kakas, Loizos Michael, Rob Miller
2014 arXiv   pre-print
This paper develops a Reasoning about Actions and Change framework integrated with Default Reasoning, suitable as a Knowledge Representation and Reasoning framework for Story Comprehension.  ...  It uses argumentation to capture appropriate solutions to the frame, ramification and qualification problems and generalizations of these problems required for text comprehension.  ...  This priority amongst these basic units of knowledge gives a form of non-monotonic reasoning (NMR) for deriving new properties that hold in the story.  ...

Brain 'talks over' boring quotes: Top-down activation of voice-selective areas while listening to monotonous direct speech quotations

Bo Yao, Pascal Belin, Christoph Scheepers
2012 NeuroImage  
Here we show that listening to monotonously spoken direct versus indirect speech quotations also engenders differential TVA activity.  ...  This suggests that individuals engage in top-down simulations or imagery of enriched supra-segmental acoustic representations while listening to monotonous direct speech.  ...  The study was supported by the Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology and the Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging, University of Glasgow.  ...

Comprehensible classification models

the comprehensibility of a model, and the use of monotonicity constraints to improve the comprehensibility and acceptance of classification models by users.  ...  This paper reviews the case for considering also the comprehensibility (interpretability) of classification models, and discusses the interpretability of five types of classification models, namely decision  ...  It has been argued that, even when there are monotonic constraints in the application domain, real-world datasets usually have some non-monotonic noise, with purely monotonic datasets being rare [7] .  ...

Effects of oral reading rate and inflection on intraverbal responding

Henry A. Tenenbaum, William D. Wolking

Reading comprehension may be defined as a type of intraverbal responding.  ...  The results indicated that the combination of high oral reading rate with inflection, a condition approximating conversational speech, increased both the accuracy and speed of intraverbal responding (comprehension  ...  , and (c) the experimenter read the passage at between 150 and 200 words per minute in a monotone.  ...

CHCs), extensively developed during the last years by Enric Trillas and some collaborators, with which deduction in this setting becomes more comprehensive.  ...  This paper aims to explore an alternative approach to reasoning with the content of fictional works, based on the application of a mathematical model for conjectures, hypotheses and consequences (abbr.  ...  Especially, anti-monotonicity is very appealing. As noted also in [7] , Conj C is anti-monotonic if and only if C is monotonic.  ...

The variables of this research were Horror Story as an independent variable and Reading Comprehension as a dependent variable. The method used in this research was Quasi Experimental research.  ...  This story makes the students learn with fun and directly involve in classroom activities.  ...  For the students to learn English by using horror story is not monotonous and this kind of the story is something new for them.  ...

Argumentation: Reconciling Human and Automated Reasoning

Antonis C. Kakas, Loizos Michael, Francesca Toni
2016 International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
We analyse this reconciliation between human and automated reasoning at three levels: (1) at the level of classical, strict reasoning on which, till today, automated reasoning and computing are based,  ...  (2) at the level of natural or ordinary human level reasoning as studied in cognitive psychology and which artificial intelligence, albeit in its early stages, is endeavouring to automate, and (3) at the  ...  two areas of AI were established for this: (1) Non-monotonic Reasoning and (2) Belief Revision.  ...

Reasoning Biases, Non-Monotonic Logics and Belief Revision

Catarina Dutilh Novaes, Herman Veluwenkamp
2016 Theoria  
The upshot is thus that, while it may offer valuable insights into the nature of human reasoning, preferential logic (and non-monotonic logics in general) is ultimately inadequate as a formal model of  ...  The present investigation provides an illustration of the second kind of empirical testing by comparing two formal models for reasoningnamely the non-monotonic logic known as preferential logic; and a  ...  Indeed, the difference between monotonic reasoning and (non-monotonic) preferential reasoning is that the former requires that the reasoner takes into account each and every model of the premises, whereas  ...

Simulating Non-Deductive Reasoning

James W. Hearne
1983 International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
This paper is intended to draw attention to a literature in Philosophy that would be of great use and interest to researchers attempting to simulate non-deductive reasoning.  ...  Two models of such reasoning are discussed, and the kernel role of the concept of explanation common to them both is revealed.  ...  Attempts to simulate such reasoning typically devolve to attempts to reconstruct non-deductive reasoning as a deductive system with exotic properties such as probabilistic truth values or non-monotonicity  ...

A longitudinal study in atypical Cri-du chat profile: A single case report

2013 Case Reports in Clinical Medicine  
FS showed good lexical competence in both comprehension and production. Differently, her grammatical skills (i.e. comprehension and production) were somewhat defective.  ...  The first assessment was made at 2.3 years and second at 6.5 years. Results: Her cognitive profile was characterized by a discrepancy between social-communicative and visual-motor skills.  ...  Indeed, FS's syntactical performance seemed to be influenced by semantic and reasoning factors.  ...

Enhancing Idiom Competence of Iranian EFL Learners: Idiom Etymology and Short Story in Focus

Omid Tabatabaei, Parisa Hajizadeh
2015 Mediterranean Journal of Social Sciences  
This is mainly because such expressions display non-conventional and figurative senses.  ...  To this end, short stories, as an important component of literature, and etymological elaboration, as a crucial aspect of language, were used to present the meaning of such expressions to L2 learners.  ...  They also explained that language learners utilize different strategies; while absence of implicit knowledge of idioms is regarded as the main reason of their failure in comprehension and retention of  ...
