Here is the related information … the most economic way (e.g., less money) the most efficient way (e.g., less time)...

DCP1172, Ch.8 7 Last time: Logic and Reasoning Knowledge Base (KB): contains a set of sentences expressed using a knowledge representation language TELL: operator to add a sentence to the KB ASK: operator to query the KB Logics are KRLs where conclusions can be drawn Syntax Semantics Entailment: KB |= α iff a is true in all worlds where KB is true Inference: KB |– i α, sentence α can be derived from KB using procedure i Sound: whenever KB |– i α then KB |= α is true Complete: whenever KB |= a then KB |– i a

DCP1172, Ch.8 8 Last Time: Syntax of propositional logic

DCP1172, Ch.8 9 Last Time: Semantics of Propositional logic

DCP1172, Ch.8 10 Last Time: Inference rules for propositional logic

DCP1172, Ch.8 11 This time First-order logic Syntax Semantics Wumpus world example Ontology (ont = ‘to be’; logica = ‘word’): kinds of things one can talk about in the language

DCP1172, Ch.8 12 Why first-order logic? We saw that propositional logic is limited because it only makes the ontological commitment that the world consists of facts. Difficult to represent even simple worlds like the Wumpus world; e.g., “don’t go forward if the Wumpus is in front of you” takes 64 rules

DCP1172, Ch.8 13 First-order logic (FOL) Ontological commitments: Objects: wheel, door, body, engine, seat, car, passenger, driver Relations: Inside(car, passenger), Beside(driver, passenger) Functions: ColorOf(car) Properties: Color(car), IsOpen(door), IsOn(engine) Functions are relations with single value for each object

DCP1172, Ch.8 14 Semantics there is a correspondence between functions, which return values predicates, which are true or false Function: father_of(Mary) = Bill Predicate: father_of(Mary, Bill)

DCP1172, Ch.8 15 Examples: “One plus two equals three” Objects:one, two, three, one plus two Relations:equals Properties:-- Functions:plus (“one plus two” is the name of the object obtained by applying function plus to one and two; three is another name for this object) “Squares neighboring the Wumpus are smelly” Objects:Wumpus, square Relations:neighboring Properties:smelly Functions:--

DCP1172, Ch.8 16 FOL: Syntax of basic elements Constant symbols: 1, 5, A, B, Alex, Manos, … Predicate symbols: >, Friend, Student, Colleague, … Function symbols: +, sqrt, SchoolOf, TeacherOf, ClassOf, … Variables: x, y, z, next, first, last, … Connectives: , , ,  Quantifiers: ,  Equality: =

DCP1172, Ch.8 17 Syntax of Predicate Logic Symbol set constants Boolean connectives variables functions predicates (relations) quantifiers

DCP1172, Ch.8 18 Syntax of Predicate Logic Terms: a reference to an object variables, constants, functional expressions (can be arguments to predicates) Examples: first([a,b,c]), sq_root(9), sq_root(n), tail([a,b,c])

DCP1172, Ch.8 19 Syntax of Predicate Logic Sentences: make claims about objects Well-formed formulas, (wffs) Atomic Sentences (predicate expressions): Loves(John,Mary), Brother(John,Ted) Complex Sentences (Atomic Sentences connected by booleans): ¬ Loves(John,Mary) Brother(John,Ted) ^ Brother(Ted,John) Mother(Alice, John) ⇒ Mother(Alice,Ted)

DCP1172, Ch.8 20 Examples of Terms: Constants, Variables and Functions Constants: object constants refer to individuals Alan, Sam, R225, R216 Variables PersonX, PersonY, RoomS, RoomT Functions father_of(PersonX) product_of(Number1,Number2)

DCP1172, Ch.8 21 Examples of Predicates and Quantifiers Predicates In(Alan,R225) PartOf(R225,BuildingEC3) FatherOf(PersonX,PersonY) Quantifiers All dogs are mammals. Some birds can’t fly. 3 birds can’t fly.

DCP1172, Ch.8 22 Semantics Referring to individuals Jackie son-of(Jackie), Sam Referring to states of the world person(Jackie), female(Jackie) mother(Sam, Jackie)

DCP1172, Ch.8 23 FOL: Atomic sentences AtomicSentence  Predicate(Term, …) | Term = Term Term  Function(Term, …) | Constant | Variable Examples: SchoolOf(Manos) Colleague(TeacherOf(Alex), TeacherOf(Manos)) >((+ x y), x)

DCP1172, Ch.8 24 FOL: Complex sentences Sentence  AtomicSentence | Sentence Connective Sentence | Quantifier Variable, … Sentence |  Sentence | (Sentence) Examples: S1  S2, S1  S2, (S1  S2)  S3, S1  S2, S1  S3 Colleague(Paolo, Maja)  Colleague(Maja, Paolo) Student(Alex, Paolo)  Teacher(Paolo, Alex)

DCP1172, Ch.8 25 Semantics of atomic sentences Sentences in FOL are interpreted with respect to a model Model contains objects and relations among them Terms: refer to objects (e.g., Door, Alex, StudentOf(Paolo)) Constant symbols: refer to objects Predicate symbols: refer to relations Function symbols: refer to functional Relations An atomic sentence predicate(term 1, …, term n ) is true iff the relation referred to by predicate holds between the objects referred to by term 1, …, term n

DCP1172, Ch.8 26 Example model Objects: John, James, Marry, Alex, Dan, Joe, Anne, Rich Relation: sets of tuples of objects {,,, …} {,,, …} E.g.: Parent relation -- {,, } then Parent(John, James) is true Parent(John, Marry) is false

DCP1172, Ch.8 27 Quantifiers Expressing sentences about collections of objects without enumeration (naming individuals) E.g., All Trojans are clever Someone in the class is sleeping Universal quantification (for all):  Existential quantification (three exists): 

DCP1172, Ch.8 28 Universal quantification (for all):   “Every one in the DCP1172 class is smart”:  x In(DCP1172, x)  Smart(x)  P corresponds to the conjunction of instantiations of P In(DCP1172, Manos)  Smart(Manos)  In(DCP1172, Dan)  Smart(Dan)  … In(DCP1172, Clinton)  Smart(Clinton)

DCP1172, Ch.8 29 Universal quantification (for all):   is a natural connective to use with  Common mistake: to use  in conjunction with  e.g:  x In(DCP1172, x)  Smart(x) means “every one is in DCP1172 and everyone is smart”

DCP1172, Ch.8 30 Existential quantification (there exists):   “Someone in the dcp1172 class is smart”:  x In(dcp1172, x)  Smart(x)  P corresponds to the disjunction of instantiations of P In(dcp1172, Manos)  Smart(Manos)  In(dcp1172, Dan)  Smart(Dan)  … In(dcp1172, Clinton)  Smart(Clinton)

DCP1172, Ch.8 31 Existential quantification (there exists):   is a natural connective to use with  Common mistake: to use  in conjunction with  e.g:  x In(dcp1172, x)  Smart(x) is true if there is anyone that is not in dcp1172! (remember, false  true is valid).

DCP1172, Ch.8 32 Properties of quantifiers Proof? Not all by one person but each one at least by one

DCP1172, Ch.8 33 Proof In general we want to prove:  x P(x) ¬  x ¬ P(x)   x P(x) = ¬(¬(  x P(x))) = ¬(¬(P(x1) ^ P(x2) ^ … ^ P(xn)) ) = ¬(¬P(x1) v ¬P(x2) v … v ¬P(xn)) )   x ¬P(x) = ¬P(x1) v ¬P(x2) v … v ¬P(xn)  ¬  x ¬P(x) = ¬(¬P(x1) v ¬P(x2) v … v ¬P(xn))

DCP1172, Ch.8 34 Example sentences Brothers are siblings  x, y Brother(x, y)  Sibling(x, y) Sibling is transitive  x, y, z Sibling(x, y)  Sibling(y, z)  Sibling(x, z) One’s mother is one’s sibling’s mother  m, c,d Mother(m, c)  Sibling(c, d)  Mother(m, d) A first cousin is a child of a parent’s sibling  c, d FirstCousin(c, d)   p, ps Parent(p, d)  Sibling(p, ps)  Parent(ps, c)

DCP1172, Ch.8 35 Example sentences One’s mother is one’s sibling’s mother  m, c,d Mother(m, c)  Sibling(c, d)  Mother(m, d)  c,d  m Mother(m, c)  Sibling(c, d)  Mother(m, d) cd m Mother of sibling

DCP1172, Ch.8 36 Translating English to FOL Every gardener likes the sun.  x gardener(x) => likes(x,Sun) You can fool some of the people all of the time.  x  t (person(x) ^ time(t)) => can-fool(x,t)

DCP1172, Ch.8 37 Translating English to FOL You can fool all of the people some of the time.  x  t (person(x) ^ time(t) => can-fool(x,t) All purple mushrooms are poisonous.  x (mushroom(x) ^ purple(x)) => poisonous(x)

DCP1172, Ch.8 38 Translating English to FOL… No purple mushroom is poisonous. ¬(  x) purple(x) ^ mushroom(x) ^ poisonous(x) or, equivalently, (  x) (mushroom(x) ^ purple(x)) => ¬poisonous(x)

DCP1172, Ch.8 39 Translating English to FOL… There are exactly two purple mushrooms. (  x)(  y) mushroom(x) ^ purple(x) ^ mushroom(y) ^ purple(y) ^ ¬(x=y) ^ (  z) (mushroom(z) ^ purple(z)) => ((x=z) v (y=z)) Deb is not tall. ¬tall(Deb)

DCP1172, Ch.8 40 Translating English to FOL… X is above Y if X is on directly on top of Y or else there is a pile of one or more other objects directly on top of one another starting with X and ending with Y. (  x)(  y) above(x,y) (on(x,y) v (  z) (on(x,z) ^ above(z,y)))

DCP1172, Ch.8 41 Equality

DCP1172, Ch.8 42 Higher-order logic? First-order logic allows us to quantify over objects (= the first-order entities that exist in the world). Higher-order logic also allows quantification over relations and functions. e.g., “two objects are equal iff all properties applied to them are equivalent”:  x,y (x=y)  (  p, p(x)  p(y)) Higher-order logics are more expressive than first-order; however, so far we have little understanding on how to effectively reason with sentences in higher-order logic.
