Proces Interruption Reasoning

Abstract

Biological processes such as Cellular Respiration have an intricate structure that defines the ordering amongst different steps and the participants in each step. A person who understands the process is expected to be able to reason with how the process is affected if one or more steps is interrupted. In this paper, we analyze a family of questions about process interruption, and present reasoning patterns that an automated reasoner can use to answer them. Our reasoning patterns rely on the order of steps of the process and the participants of those steps. We suggest that this approach leads to more intuitive and simpler reasoning than an approach of based on theory of intentions [9,10], or an approach that relies on qualitative simulation [8].

AURA

Automated User-Centered Reasoning and Acquisition System

The goal of this project is to build a generic knowledge acquisition capability for Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. Using the system, the scientists will be able to formulate their knowledge in the three science domains, and the high school students will be able to pose Advanced-Placement style questions and get user appropriate explanations.
