A system for abductive learning of logic programs [chapter]

Evelina Lamma, Paola Mello, Michela Milano, Fabrizio Riguzzi
1998 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We present the system LAP (Learning Abductive Programs) that is able to learn abductive logic programs from examples and from a background abductive theory.  ...  In the new problem definition, both the background and the target theories are abductive logic programs and abductive derivability is used as the coverage relation.  ...  Acknowledgment We would like to thank the anonymous referees and participants of the post-ILPS97 Workshop on Logic Programming and Knowledge Representation for useful comments and insights on this work  ...

2001 Handbook of Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering  
We present a general overview of logical abduction and describe two abductive reasoning techniques, developed from the logic and expert system communities.  ...  In this paper we survey recent work on the use of abduction as a knowledge-based reasoning technique for analysing software specifications.  ...  Acknowledgements Many thanks to Tim Menzies and Ken Satoh for providing useful insights about their respective abductive approaches, to Tony Kakas for useful discussions about abduction and abductive tools  ...

Merging Deductive and Abductive Knowledge Bases: An Argumentation Context Approach

Juan Carlos Nieves, Helena Lindgren
2013 POLIBITS Research Journal on Computer Science and Computer Engineering With Applications  
We illustrate the approach by considering two different declarative specifications of evidence-based medical knowledge into logic programs in order to support informed medical decisions.  ...  In this paper, we explore an argumentation context approach, which follows how medical professionals typically reason, in order to merge two basic kinds of reasoning approaches based on logic programs:  ...  In order to define the semantics of default argumentation context systems, the acceptable states of a given default argumentation context system will be defined as follows.  ...

An Experimental CLP Platform for Integrity Constraints and Abduction [chapter]

Slim Abdennadher, Henning Christiansen
2001 Flexible Query Answering Systems  
Integrity constraint and abduction are important in query-answering systems for enhanced query processing and for expressing knowledge in databases.  ...  Section 3 presents a translation of logic programs with integrity constraints into CHR ¥ programs. In Section 4, we show how abductive frameworks can be formalized in CHR ¥ .  ...  The requirements for a constraint solver are essentially the same as those posed by traditional constraint logic programming systems with backward chaining.  ...

ACLP: Integrating Abduction and Constraint Solving [article]

Antonis Kakas
2000 arXiv   pre-print
ACLP is a system which combines abductive reasoning and constraint solving by integrating the frameworks of Abductive Logic Programming (ALP) and Constraint Logic Programming (CLP).  ...  The ACLP system is currently implemented on top of the CLP language of ECLiPSe as a meta-interpreter exploiting its underlying constraint solver for finite domains.  ...  An ACLP program, < P, A, IC >, can contain negation as failure literals in P and IC. Negation as failure is handled through abduction simply as another type of abducible in the theory.  ...

A Causal Theory of Abduction

A. Bochman
2007 Journal of Logic and Computation  
The representation covers in a single framework not only traditional, 'classical' forms of abduction, but also abductive reasoning in diagnosis, theories of actions and change, and abductive logic programming  ...  The paper provides a uniform representation of abductive reasoning in the logical framework of causal inference relations.  ...  Just as general abductive systems, abductive logic programs are defined as pairs (Π, A), where Π is a logic program, while A a set of propositional atoms called abducibles.  ...

Logic Programming Approaches for Representing and Solving Constraint Satisfaction Problems: A Comparison [article]

Nikolay Pelov, Emmanuel De Mot, Marc Denecker
2000 arXiv   pre-print
On the other hand there are systems based on stable model semantics, abductive systems, and first order logic model generators which compute solutions as models of some theory.  ...  On the one hand there is constraint logic programming which computes a solution as an answer substitution to a query containing the variables of the constraint satisfaction problem.  ...  The SLDNFAC system uses ID-Logic [1] as specification language which is transformed into an abductive logic program by using a Lloyd-Topor transformation.  ...

Equivalence issues in abduction and induction

Chiaki Sakama, Katsumi Inoue
2009 Journal of Applied Logic  
Inoue and Sakama [9,10] study the problem of equivalence of abductive theories under first-order logic and abductive logic programming (ALP).  ...  Three different problems: equivalence of theories, equivalence of explanations, and equivalence of observations are considered in the context of first-order logic and nonmonotonic logic programming.  ...  Comparing first-order abduction and abductive logic programming, logical equivalence characterizes each problem in first-order abduction.  ...

Bi-Abductive Inference for Shape and Ordering Properties

Christopher Curry, Quang Loc Le, Shengchao Qin
2019 2019 24th International Conference on Engineering of Complex Computer Systems (ICECCS)  
To extend this impact towards the combination of shape and arithmetic domains, in this work, we present a novel one-stage bi-abductive procedure for a combination of data structures and ordering values  ...  We demonstrate our proposal through several interesting examples to show that it is promising for an automated verification of heap-manipulating programs.  ...  Program variables are defined as italic characters, and refer to variables originating from within the program itself.  ...
