Towards Practical Defeasible Reasoning for Description Logics

Giovanni Casini, Thomas Meyer, Kody Moodley, Ivan Varzinczak
The formalisation of defeasible reasoning in automated systems is becoming increasingly important. Description Logics (DLs) are nowadays the main logical formalism in the field of formal ontologies.  ...  Our focus in this paper is to devise a practical implementation for prior work that formalises a version of Rational Closure (an important type of defeasible reasoning) for DLs.  ...  LoDEN stands for Low complexity Description Logics with Non-monotonic features.  ... 

A Normative Argument Against Explosion

Mark Pinder
2017 Thought: A Journal of Philosophy  
One strategy for defending paraconsistent logics involves raising 'normative arguments' against the inference rule explosion.  ...  I argue that, for one such formulation, Steinberger's criticisms fail. I then sketch an argument, available to those who deny dialetheism, in defence of the formulation in question.  ...  Then, it seems to straightforwardly follow from our description that Sandy has no reason whatsoever to believe R: her beliefs do not tell for or against R, and she has no other practical, epistemic or  ...

The RatioLog Project: Rational Extensions of Logical Reasoning

Ulrich Furbach, Claudia Schon, Frieder Stolzenburg, Karl-Heinz Weis, Claus-Peter Wirth
2015 Künstliche Intelligenz  
In this context, we work toward the application of techniques from human reasoning: We employ defeasible reasoning to compare the answers w.r.t. specificity, deontic logic, normative reasoning, and model  ...  Higher-level cognition includes logical reasoning and the ability of question answering with common sense.  ...  These normative statements enable the system to reason in a rational way. Since deontic logic can be translated into description logics, Hyper can be used to reason on such knowledge bases.  ...

Defeasibility in Legal Reasoning [chapter]

Giovanni Sartor
1995 Law and Philosophy Library  
Consequently, defeasibility is needed in practical reasoning, and in particular in legal reasoning.  ...  I shall then argue that cognitive agents need to engage in defeasible reasoning for coping with a complex and changing environment.  ...  Various logical approaches have been devised for modelling defeasible reasoning-default logic, autoepistemic logic, circumscription, preferential logics, metalogics-and they can be shown to converge towards  ...

Towards AI Logic for Social Reasoning [article]

Huimin Dong, Réka Markovich, Leendert van der Torre
2021 arXiv   pre-print
The discussion of the four challenges leads to a research program for argumentation-based social AI logic, contributing towards the future development of AI logic.  ...  Fourth, we discuss how to argue about the freedom to act for intelligent agents. Examples from social, legal and ethical reasoning highlight the challenges in developing social AI logic.  ...  Fragments of first-order logic have been developed in much detail, in particular description logics to represent and reason about ontologies. 2.  ...

A review of current defeasible reasoning implementations

Daniel Bryant, Paul Krause
2008 Knowledge engineering review (Print)  
This article surveys existing practical implementations of both defeasible and argumentationbased reasoning engines and associated literature.  ...  An important goal of this paper is to argue for the need for well designed empirical evaluations, as well as formal complexity analysis, in order to justify the practical applicability of a reasoning engine  ...  Much like defeasible logic, a plausible reasoning situation is defined by a plausible description, which consists of a set of facts, plausible rules and defeasible rules.  ...

EMERALD: A Multi-Agent System for Knowledge-Based Reasoning Interoperability in the Semantic Web [chapter]

Kalliopi Kravari, Efstratios Kontopoulos, Nick Bassiliades
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
One of the main problems in agent interoperation is the great variety in reasoning formalisms, as agents do not necessarily share a common rule or logic formalism.  ...  More specifically, a multi-agent system was developed on top of JADE, featuring trusted, third party reasoning services, a reusable agent prototype for knowledge-customizable agent behavior, as well as  ...  In practice, the SW serves as the framework infrastructure. Reasoning Services EMERALD integrates a number of reasoning engines that use various logics.  ...
