Applications of Inductive Logic


Idea & Motivation

The first conference of the network will have a focus on applications of inductive logic in computer science in general, and artificial intelligence in particular. In the latter, subareas such as commonsense reasoning, probabilistic reasoning, non-monotonic reasoning, automated planning, machine learning, and reasoning in the semantic web all require decision-making under uncertainty. This conference will invite researchers working in these areas in order to both inspire the network members with motivating scenarios and to bring the foundational knowledge of the network members to these application scenarios.

Questions we shall address are:

  • How should one select an inductive bias in practise?
  • What are the foundational limitations of artificial intelligence/machine learning from an inductive logic perspective?
  • How to cope with conflicting information?
