Thematic Issue on Developments on Logic-based Methods for Intelligent Systems


Nowadays, logic-based methods are playing an important role on the new generation of intelligent systems. Formal methods for capturing different sort of data are a premier requirement for implementing intelligent systems in different real applications, e.g., medical diagnosis, provision of services in smart-environments, etc. In this setting, logic-based theories have been shown to be sound theories for modelling and implementing intelligent systems.

DARe at IJCAI 2015 - final call

The Second International Workshop on "Defeasible and Ampliative Reasoning" (DARe)
held at the International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI 2015)

Workshop Description and Aims

Classical reasoning is not flexible enough when directly applied to the formalization of certain nuances of human quotidian decision making. These involve different kinds of reasoning such as reasoning with uncertainty, exceptions, similarity, vagueness, incomplete or contradictory information and many others. It turns out that everyday reasoning usually shows the two salient intertwined aspects below:
