Probabilistic Multi-Context Systems
MetadataShow full item record
The concept of contexts is widely used in artificial intelligence. Several recent attempts have been made to formalize multi-context systems (MCS) for ontology applications. However, these approaches are unable to handle probabilistic knowledge. This paper introduces a formal framework for representing and reasoning about uncertainty in multi-context systems (called p-MCS). Some important properties of p-MCS are presented and an algorithm for computing the semantics is developed. Examples are also used to demonstrate the suitability of p-MCS.
