Aim and Content

The course introduces the principles of logic-based knowledge representation and reasoning, as well as other important symbolic approaches to representing and reasoning about knowledge such as production systems, frames and inheritance networks. How to represent different sorts of knowledge, such as uncertain or incomplete knowledge, knowledge about action and change, and knowledge about default situations, is discussed. Various types of reasoning are discussed, such as logical entailment, explanation and planning.

 

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the course the student should be able to:

  • demonstrate command of theoretical knowledge about principles for logic-based representation and reasoning.
  • demonstrate a basic understanding of production systems, frames, inheritance systems and approaches to handling uncertain or incomplete knowledge.
  • demonstrate a basic understanding of principles for reasoning with respect to explanation and planning.
  • analyze and design knowledge based systems intended for computer implementation.
  • demonstrate a broad understanding of how knowledge based systems work which provides a solid foundation for further studies and for assessing when knowledge based approaches to problem solving are appropriate.
