Uncertain inference by Henry Ely Kyburg( Book )

20 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 254 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."--Jacket
Knowledge representation and defeasible reasoning by Henry Ely Kyburg( Book )

12 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This series will include monographs and collections of studies devoted to the investigation and exploration of knowledge, information, and data processing systems of all kinds, no matter whether human, (other) ani mal, or machine. Its scope is intended to span the full range of interests from classical problems in the philosophy of mind and philosophical psy chology through issues in cognitive psychology and sociobiology (concerning the mental capabilities of other species) to ideas related to artificial intelli gence and computer science. While primary emphasis will be placed upon theoretical, conceptual, and epistemological aspects of these problems and domains, empirical, experimental, and methodological studies will also ap pear from time to time. The present volume provides a collection of studies that focus on some of the central problems within the domain of artificial intelligence. These difficulties fall into four principal areas: defeasible reasoning (including the frame problem as apart), ordinary language (and the representation prob lems that it generates), the revision of beliefs (and its rules of inference), and knowledge representation (and the logical problems that are encountered there). These papers make original contributions to each of these areas of inquiry and should be of special interest to those who understand the crucial role that is played by questions of logical form. They vividly illustrate the benefits that can emerge from collaborative efforts involving scholars from linguistics, philosophy, computer science, and AI. J.H.F

Combinatorial semantics by Henry Ely Kyburg( Book )

3 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and held by 12 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."

Giving up certainties by Henry Ely Kyburg( Book )

5 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 9 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."
Probabilistic inference by Henry Ely Kyburg( Book )

8 editions published between 1987 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are two profoundly different (though not exclusive) approaches to uncertain inference. According to one, uncertain inference leads from one distribution of (non-extreme) uncertainties among those propositions. According to the other, uncertain inference is like deductive inference in that the conclusion is detached from the premises (the evidence) and accepted as practically certain; it differs in being non-monotonic: and augmentation of the premises can lead to the withdrawal of conclusions already accepted. We show here, first, that probabilistic inference is what both traditional inductive logic (ampliative inference) and non-monotonic reasoning are designed to capture, third, that acceptance is legitimate and desirable, fourth, that statistical testing provides a model of probabilistic acceptance, and fifth, that a generalization of this model makes sense in AI
