In this work, we introduce a new framework able to deal with a reasoning that is at the same time non monotonic and uncertain. In order to take into account a certainty level associated to each piece of knowledge, we use possibility theory to extend the non monotonic semantics of stable models for logic programs with default negation. By means of a… (More)

Possibilistic logic bases and possibilistic graphs are two different frameworks of interest for representing knowledge. The former ranks the pieces of knowledge (expressed by logical formulas) according to their level of certainty, while the latter exhibits relationships between variables. The two types of representation are semantically equivalent when… (More)

Possibilistic logic bases and possibilistic graphs are two different frameworks of interest for representing knowledge. The former stratifies the pieces of knowledge (expressed by logical formulas) accor?i � g to their level of certainty, while the latter exhibits relationships between variables.

In this work, we define a new framework in order to improve the knowledge representation power of Answer Set Programming paradigm. Our proposal is to use notions from possibility theory to extend the stable model semantics by taking into account a certainty level, expressed in terms of necessity measure, on each rule of a normal logic program. First of all,… (More)

In this article we present the framework of Pos-sibilistic Influence Diagrams (PID), which allow to model in a compact form problems of sequential decision making under uncertainty, when only ordinal data on transitions likelihood or preferences are available. The graphical part of a PID is exactly the same as that of usual influence diagrams, however the… (More)

In the last 15 years, several default reasoning systems have been proposed to deal with rules having exceptions. Each of these systems has been shown to be either cautious (where some intuitive conclusions do not follow from the default base), or adventurous (some debatable conclusions are inferred). However, the cautiousness and the adventurous aspect of… (More)

Linguistic negation processing is a challenging problem studied by a large number of researchers from different communities, i.e. logic, linguistics, etc. We are interested in finding the positive interpretations of a negative sentence represented as " x is not A ". In this paper, we do not focus on the single set of translations but on two approximation… (More)
