Research in knowledge representation and reasoning has a long history in artificial intelligence and logic-based approaches have played a major part in the fields development. In this course we will survey logic-based in KRR from non-monotonic logics though to description logics and the semantic web.

Comment1 George Spilkov, May 31, 2011 at 9:20 p.m.:

The title of the lecture does not specify if the content is intended for creating a reasoning machine/systems or to provide tools for a human agent to reason about situations or problem.

To clarify this ambiguity I tried to apply to the content of the lecture type of reasoning methods and knowledge representation made recently popular by a system called CYC (Doug Lenat).

My intuition tells me the lecture is intended for human agents working on finding solutions in complex systems using structured approach.

My hypothesis is based on the observation that many assertions made in the lecture are ambiguous to be well understood and used by a machine since they rely on common sense and domain specific knowledge and expert judgements.
