Abstract The paper attempts to account for common patterns in commonsense reasoning through integrating rule-based reasoning and similarity-based reasoning as embodied in connectionist models. Reasoning examples are analyzed and a diverse range of patterns is identified. A principled synthesis based on simple rules and similarities is performed, which unifies these patterns that were before difficult to be accounted for without specialized mechanisms individually. A two-level connectionist… Expand

A Connectionist Framework for Reasoning: Reasoning with Examples
  • D. Roth
  • Computer Science
  • AAAI/IAAI, Vol. 2
  • 1996
TLDR
It is suggested to interpret the connectionist architecture as encoding examples of the domain the authors reason about and show how to perform various reasoning tasks with this interpretation, and how this learning process influences the reasoning performance of the network. Expand
Belief rule-base inference methodology using the evidential reasoning Approach-RIMER
TLDR
A generic rule-base inference methodology using the evidential reasoning (RIMER) approach is proposed, capable of capturing vagueness, incompleteness, and nonlinear causal relationships, while traditional if-then rules can be represented as a special case. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that models for approximate commonsense reasoning not only must take into account the conceptual and subconceptual distinction but also make use of the interaction between the two. Expand
Completing Symbolic Rule Bases Using Betweenness and Analogical Proportion
TLDR
This chapter discusses two methods which can be used to derive plausible rules from a given set of propositional rules and a set of analogical proportions and shows how the second method may be further refined, in such a way that it recovers the first method as a special case. Expand
Structural representation and reasoning in a hybrid cognitive architecture
TLDR
This work presents a way of representing knowledge within the hybrid cognitive architecture CLARION, and describes algorithms that use such structures to model many types of reasoning, including: analogical reasoning, deductive reasoning, moral reasoning, and more. Expand
On Construction and Evaluation of Analogical Arguments for Persuasive Reasoning
TLDR
This proposed assumption-based argumentation with predicate similarity ABA(p) framework can be seen as an extension of assumption- based argumentation framework (ABA), in which not only assumptions can be used but also similarity of predicates is used to support a claim. Expand
A novel belief rule base representation, generation and its inference methodology
TLDR
A novel rule-based representation scheme with a belief structure is proposed firstly along with its inference methodology, which is shown to be capable of capturing vagueness, incompleteness, uncertainty, and nonlinear causal relationships in an integrated way. Expand
