A Description Oriented Logic for Building Knowledge
Bases
GIUSEPPE ATTARDI and MARIA SIMI
We discuss the advantages of using a logic system for knowledge
representation which is based on descriptions, rather than predicates,
and which embodies two fundamental ideas for structuring knowledge
that are distilled from semantic networks and frame based languages:
inheritance and attributions. Taxonomic reasoning on a lattice of
descriptions combined with deduction strategies defined at the
metalevel provides the knowlegde base with the capability to deal with
complex problem solving tasks.
I. INTRODUCTION
The ability to represent knowledge is often considered
essential to build systems with reasoning capabilities. We
discuss the advantages of using a logic system for knowledge
representation which is based on descriptions, rather than
predicates, and which includes some fundamental structuring
capabilities.
