@TECHREPORT{AICPub523:1991, AUTHOR={Konolige, Kurt}, TITLE={Hierarchic Autoepistemic Theories For Nonmonotonic Reasoning: Preliminary, Report}, ADDRESS={333 Ravenswood Ave., Menlo Park, CA 94025}, INSTITUTION={AI Center, SRI International}, MONTH={Apr}, NUMBER={446}, YEAR={1991}, KEYWORDS={Reasoning!Nonmonotonic, Nonmonotonic Reasoning|seeReasoning, Logic!Autoepistemic}, ABSTRACT={Nonmonotonic logics are meant to be a formalization of nonmonotonic reasoning. However, for the most part they fail to embody two of the most important aspects of such reasoning: the explicit computational nature of nonmonotonic inference, and the assignment of preferences among competing inferences. We propose a method of nonmonotonic reasoning in which the notion of inference from specific bodies of evidence plays a fundamental role. The formalization is based on autoepistemic logic, but introduces additional structure, a hierarchy of evidential spaces. The method offers a natural formalization of many different applications of nonmonotonic reasoning, including reasoning about action, speech acts, belief revision, and various situations involving competing defaults.}, NOTE={Originally published August 1988; revised April 1991} }
