Topics

We will discuss the book Conditionals in Nonmonotonic Reasoning and Belief Revision from Gabriele Kern-Isberner. An online version of the book is accessible via de university network here. For this purpose every student will choose one of the chapters below. For the report and the presentation, you are supposed to work out and discuss with help of running examples the ideas presented in each chapter.

  • Topic 1
    • Chapter 3, Conditionals (pp. 27-51) is about how conditional structures can be represented appropriately to investigate interrelated effects of conditionals
  • Topic 2
    • Chapter 4, Revising Epistemic States by Conditional Beliefs (pages 53-72) is about revision by conditional beliefs, belief sets and AGM postulates
  • Topic 3
    • Chapter 5, Characterizing the Principle of Minimum Cross-Entropy (pages 73-90) is about probability theory and how to deal with incomplete information
  • Topic 4
    • Chapter 6, Reasoning at Optimum Entropy (pages 91-101) is about how inferring at optimum entropy fits the formal framework for nonmonotonic reasoning
  • Topic 5
    • Chapter 7, Belief Revision and Nonmonotonic Reasoning - Revisited (page 103-117) is about exploiting the relationships between nonmonotonic reasoning and belief revision and revision versus updating
  • Topic 6
    • Chapter 8: Knowledge Discovery by Following Conditional Structures (page 118-135) is about knowledge discovery within a probabilistic framework where experimental data is assumed to be represented by a probabililty function.
  • Topic 7
