Uncertain inference by Henry Ely Kyburg ( )
13 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The principal market for the book will be students and professionals in philosophy, computer science, and artificial intelligence. Among the special features of the book are a chapter on evidential probability, an interpretation of probability specifically developed with an eye to inductive and uncertain inference, which has not received a basic exposition before; chapters on nonmonotonic reasoning and theory replacement that concern matters rarely addressed in standard philosophical texts; and chapters on Mill's methods and statistical inference that cover material sorely lacking in the usual treatments of artificial intelligence and computer science."--BOOK JACKET

Combinatorial semantics by Henry Ely Kyburg ( Book )
3 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "In ordinary first order logic, a valid inference in a language L is one in which the conclusion is true in every model of the language in which the premises are true. To accommodate inductive/uncertain/probabilistic/non-monotonic inference, we weaken that demand to the demand that the conclusion be true in a large proportion of the models in which the premises are true. More generally, we say that an inference is [p, q] valid if it is true in a proportion lying between p and q of those models in which the premises are true. If we include a statistical variable binding operator '%' in our language, there are many quite general things we can say about uncertain validity."

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Giving up certainties by Henry Ely Kyburg ( Book )
3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "One of the serious motivations for the development of non-monotonic logics is the fact that, however sure we may be of some set of facts, there can come a time at which at least some of them must be given up. A number of philosophical approaches have stemmed from the study of scientific inference, in which a law or theory, accepted on good evidence at one time, comes to be rejected on the basis of more evidence. These approaches are reviewed, and an alternative approach, whose key idea is the control of observational error for the purpose of predictive adequacy, is developed."
