2. Applications of FOL • Proving Theorems in Mathematics • Proving Programs Correct • Programming • Ontologies – what kids of things makes up the world? • Planning – how does the world change over time? CSE 573

3. Theorem Proving • Mathematics • Small number of axioms • Deep results • In 1933, E. V. Huntington presented the following basis for Boolean algebra: • x + y = y + x. [commutativity] • (x + y) + z = x + (y + z). [associativity] • n(n(x) + y) + n(n(x) + n(y)) = x. [Huntington equation] • Shortly thereafter, Herbert Robbins conjectured that the Huntington equation can be replaced with a simpler one: • n(n(x + y) + n(x + n(y))) = x. [Robbins equation] • Algebras satisfying commutativity, associativity, and the Robbins equation became known as Robbins algebras. Question: is every Robbins algebra Boolean? • Solved October 10, 1996, by the theorem prover EQP • Open question for 63 years! • William McCune, Argonne National Laboratory • 8 days on an RS/6000 processor CSE 573

4. Theorem Proving • Program Verification • Huge number of axioms • Tedious (but vital!) results • J. Strother Moore (Boyer-Moore Theorem Prover) • Correctness of the AMD5k86 Floating-Point Division: If p and d are double extended precision floating-point numbers (d /= 0) and mode is a rounding mode specifying a rounding style and target format of precision n not exceeding 64, then the result delivered by the K5 microcode is p/d rounded according to mode.

6. Progress • Automated theorem proving “stalled” in 1980’s • Recent resurgence • Massive memory, speed • Code sharing via web • you can download a program to do your homework! • Integration of propositional reasoning techniques into FOL theorem proving • clever heuristics for grounding formulas CSE 573

7. Programming in Logic • Prolog – FOL as a programming logic • FO Horn clauses • still Turing complete! • restricted form of resolution theorem proving • Idea: Predicate = Program • Function symbols = way to build data structures [ 1, 2, 3 ] = cons(1,cons(2,cons(3,nil))) •  X, T . member(X, cons(X, T)) •  X, Y, T . (member(X, T)  member(X, cons(Y,T))) • member(X, [X|T]). • member(X, [Y|T]) :- member(X, T). • query: member(3, [1, 2, 3, 4]) returns true CSE 573

8. Prolog: Computing Values • append([], L, L). • append([H|L1], L2, [H|L3]) :- append(L1,L2,L3). • queries: • append([1,2],[3,4],[1,2,3,4]) returns true • append([1,2],[3,4],X) returns X = [1,2,3,4] • append([1,2],Y,[1,2,3,4]) returns Y=[3,4] CSE 573

9. Deductive Databases • Datalog: • Facts = DB relations (tables) • Rules = Prolog without function symbols • Decidable, but PTIME-complete • salary_by_name(X,Y) :- ssn(X,N) & salary_by_ssn(N,Y). CSE 573

10. Ontologies • on·tol·o·gy n. The branch of metaphysics that deals with the nature of being. • AI definition: a set of axioms that describe some aspect of the world in terms of types of objects and relationships between objects. CSE 573

12. Example Ontology: Subtypes anything abstract physical position emotion machine animate animal happiness robot human  x . (anything(x) (physical(x)  abstract(x)))  x . (robot(x) machine(x)) CSE 573

13. Example Ontology: Relations anything abstract physical location position emotion machine animate animal experience happiness robot human  x . (physical(x)  y . (position(y) location(x,y)) CSE 573

14. Example Ontology: Instances anything abstract physical location position emotion machine animate animal experience happiness robot human robot(R2D2)location(R2D2, X24Y99Z33)  position(X24Y99Z33) R2D2 CSE 573

15. Why Formalize Ontologies? • Knowledge exchange and reuse • Common syntax not enough • How do the your meanings relate to my meanings? • Is Bill Gate’s meaning of “expensive” the same as mine? • What to do when we have different ways of conceptualizing the world? • Eskimo’s words for snow CSE 573

16. Categories in Dyirbal, an aboriginal language of Australia • Bayi: men, kangaroos, possums, bats, most snakes, most fishes, some birds, most insects, the moon, storms, rainbows, boomerangs, some spears, etc. • Balan: women, anything connected with water or fire, bandicoots, dogs, platypus, echidna, some snakes, some fishes, most birds, fireflies, scorpions, crickets, the stars, shields, some spears, some trees, etc. • Balam: all edible fruit and the plants that bear them, tubers, ferns, honey, cigarettes, wine, cake. • Bala: parts of the body, meat, bees, wind, yamsticks, some spears, most trees, grass, mud, stones, noises, language, etc. CSE 573
