  • A Computational Account of Everyday Abductive Inference Pat Langley Computing Science and Engineering Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ 85287 Will Bridewell Center for Biomedical Informatics Research Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305 Abstract In this paper, we review the main qualitative charac- teristics of everyday inference in human cognition and present a computational account that is consistent with them. This includes both a representational framework and associated processes that… CONTINUE READING
