2021 AAAI Spring Symposia  
A variety of research on theory and knowledge refinement that integrated knowledge engineering and machine learning was conducted in the 1990's. This work developed a variety of techniques for taking engineered knowledge in the form of propositional or first-order logical rule bases and revising them to fit empirical data using symbolic, probabilistic, and/or neural-network learning methods. We review this work to provide historical context for expanding these techniques to integrate modern knowledge engineering and machine learning methods.
