Probabilistic Logic-based Characterization of Knowledge Discovery in Databases

  title={Probabilistic Logic-based Characterization of Knowledge Discovery in Databases},
  author={Ying Xie and Vijay V. Raghavan},
From the perspective of knowledge representation and reasoning as well as for the automation of the knowledge discovery process, we argue that a formal logical foundation is needed for KDD and suggest Bacchus’ probability logic is a good choice. It is generally accepted that the unique and most important feature of a KDD system lies in its ability to discover previously unknown and potentially useful patterns. Therefore we give a formal definition of “pattern” as well as its determiners, which… CONTINUE READING
