Abductive Matchmaking using Description Logics


Motivated by the matchmaking problem in electronic marketplaces, we study abduction in Description Logics. We devise suitable definitions of the problem, and show how they can model commonsense reasoning usually employed in analyzing classified announcements having a standardized terminology. We then describe a system partially implementing these ideas, and present a simple experiment, which shows the correspondence between the system behavior with human users judgement.
