Revising Probabilistic Prolog Programs [chapter]

Luc De Raedt, Kristian Kersting, Angelika Kimmig, Kate Revoredo, Hannu Toivonen
2007 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Here, we define and study the problem of revising ProbLog theories from examples.  ...  In a recently submitted paper [1], the ProbLog (probabilistic prolog) language has been introduced and various algorithms have been developed for solving and approximating ProbLog queries.  ...  Conclusion We have introduced a new type of theory revision problem involving probabilistic theories and sketched an algorithm for solving it.  ...

On the use of stochastic local search techniques to revise first-order logic theories from examples

Aline Paes, Gerson Zaverucha, Vítor Santos Costa
2016 Machine Learning  
Theory Revision from Examples is the process of repairing incorrect theories and/or improving incomplete theories from a set of examples.  ...  This process usually results in more accurate and comprehensible theories than purely inductive learning.  ...  We would like to thank all the authors of previous work that made their systems and datasets publicly available.  ...

When is an Example a Counterexample? [article]

Eric Pacuit, Arthur Paul Pedersen, Jan-Willem Romeijn
2013 arXiv   pre-print
We suggest that the example is better seen as a failure to apply the theory of belief revision in sufficient detail.  ...  The main contribution is conceptual aiming at the literature on the philosophical foundations of the AGM theory of belief revision [1].  ...  The key step is to forge a connection between the AGM theory of belief revision and nonstandard probability measures.  ...

The Probability of a Possibility: Adding Uncertainty to Default Rules [chapter]

Craig Boutilier
1993 Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence  
We also show how our system can be viewed as a unification of probability theory and possi bility theory, highlighting their orthogonality and providing a means for expressing the probability of a possibility  ...  Thus, our system accounts for the best properties of qualitative methods of update (in particular, the AGM theory of revision) and probabilistic meth ods.  ...  In this sense, our logic is a unification of probability theory and possibility theory that highlights their orthogonality and adds to possibility theory the means to express the probability of a possibility  ...

Is the mind Bayesian? The case for agnosticism

Jean Baratgin, Guy Politzer
2006 Mind & Society  
They regard (i) the background of revision (the Bayesian model considers only revising situations but not updating situations), and (ii) the notorious case of the null priors.  ...  for it to be the basis of a probability judgment by individual participants.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors thank Denis Hilton, David Over and Steve Sloman for their comments on various drafts of this paper.  ...

This study aims to extend and deepen a survey of modern extensions of probability theory represented in [6, 7].  ...  The classical probability theory possesses rather limited possibilities and cannot cope with situations of partial ignorance. Other approaches are required allowing one to solve tasks of that kind.  ...  In probability theory, both G-revision and F-revision are implemented by means of Bayes' theorem.  ...

Paradigms, possibilities, and probabilities: Comment on Hinterecker, Knauff, and Johnson-Laird (2016)

Mike Oaksford, David Over, Nicole Cruz

Taking Advantage of Difference in Opinion

Richard Bradley
2006 Episteme: A journal of individual and social epistemology  
In particular, it argues that rational individual revision of opinion implies that aggregation problems are unstable in a certain sense and that solving them by exploiting the information embedded in individual  ...  ABSTRACTDiversity of opinion both presents problems and affords opportunities. Differences of opinion can stand in the way of reaching an agreement within a group on what decisions to take.  ...  Answers to this question are given by theories of revision: Bayesian conditioning models for probability revision are perhaps the best known -see Joyce [11] -but there are also well developed theories  ...

Bias-Driven Revision of Logical Domain Theories

M. Koppel, R. Feldman, A. M. Segre
1994 The Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research  
The theory revision problem is the problem of how best to go about revising a deficient domain theory using information contained in examples that expose inaccuracies.  ...  PTR is proved to converge to a theory which correctly classifies all examples, and shown experimentally to be fast and accurate even for deep theories.  ...  The authors also wish to thank the JAIR reviewers for their exceptionally prompt and helpful remarks.  ...
