Knowledge/uncertainty/truth/AI research/Norvig/Russell: Since 1980, when nonmonotonic logics were first proposed, a great deal of progress has been made in understanding their mathematical properties. There are still unresolved questions, however. For example, if “Cars have four wheels” is false, what does it mean to have it in one’s knowledge base? What is a good set of default rules to have? If we cannot decide, for each rule separately, whether it belongs in our knowledge base, then we have a serious problem of nonmodularity. Finally, how can beliefs that have default status be used to make decisions? >Beliefs/AI research, >Knowledge representation/AI research, >Belief states/Norvig, >Truth maintenance/AI research._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
