  • Britz, K; Heidema, J; Varzinczak, I (2010-05)
    In this paper the authors venture beyond one of the fundamental assumptions in the non-monotonic reasoning community, namely that non-monotonic entailment is supra-classical. They investigate reasoning which uses an ...
  • Britz, K; Meyer, T; Varzinczak, I (Elsevier, 2011-11)
    Modal logic is the foundation for a versatile and well-established class of knowledge representation formalisms in artificial intelligence. Enriching modal logics with non-monotonic reasoning capabilities such as preferential ...
  • Britz, K; Casini, G; Meyer, T; Varzinczak, I (CAIR (Centre for Artificial Intelligence Research), 2013-07)
    We extend the Description Logic ALC with preferential role restrictions as class constructs, and argue that preferential universal restriction represents a defeasible version of standard universal restriction. The resulting ...
  • Booth, R; Meyer, T; Varzinczak, I (King's College Publications, 2013-08)
    We introduce Propositional Typicality Logic (PTL), a logic for reasoning about typicality. We do so by enriching classical propositional logic with a typicality operator of which the intuition is to capture the most typical ...
  • Moodley, K; Meyer, T; Varzinczak, I (2012-06)
    We discuss two approaches for defeasible reasoning in Description Logics that allow for the statement of defeasible subsumptions of the form “subsumed by usually holds”. These approaches are known as prototypical reasoning ...
  • Booth, R; Meyer, T; Varzinczak, I (Springer, 2012-09)
    We introduce Propositional Typicality Logic (PTL), a logic for reasoning about typicality. We do so by enriching classical propositional logic with a typicality operator of which the intuition is to capture the most typical ...
  • Franconi, E; Meyer, T; Varzinczak, I (2010-05)
    In this paper the authors investigate the problem of maintaining and reasoning with different versions of a knowledge base. The authors are interested in the scenario where a knowledge base (expressed in some logical ...
  • Britz, K; Meyer, T; Varzinczak, I (2011-12)
    Description logics are a well-established family of knowledge representation formalisms in Artificial Intelligence. Enriching description logics with non-monotonic reasoning capabilities, especially preferential reasoning ...
  • Britz, K; Varzinczak, I (2014-07)
    We investigate the notion of dilation of a propositional theory based on neighbourhoods in a generalized approximation space.We take both a semantic and a syntactic approach in order to define a suitable notion of theory ...
  • Casini, G; Meyer, T; Moodley, K; Varzinczak, I (Centre for Artificial Intelligence Research, 2013-07)
    The formalisation of defeasible reasoning in automated systems is becoming increasingly important. Description Logics (DLs) are nowadays the main logical formalism in the field of formal ontologies. Our focus in this paper ...
  • Booth, R; Casini, G; Meyer, T; Varzinczak, I (Commonsense Reasoning, 2015-03)
    We continue recent investigations into the problem of reasoning about typicality. We do so in the framework of Propositional Typicality Logic (PTL), which is obtained by enriching classical propositional logic with a ...
