Inconsistency and Decision Making

While classical FOL is the kernel of many KR languages, to solve real-world problems we often need to consider features that cannot be expressed purely (or not naturally) in classical logic. The logic and graph-based formalisms used for previous points have thus to be extended with such features. The following requirements have been identified from scenarios in decision making, privileging the agronomy domain:

Although the solutions we develop require to be validated on the applications that motivated them, we also want them to be sufficiently generic to be applied in other contexts. One angle of attack (but not the only possible one) consists in increasing the expressivity of our core languages, while trying to preserve their essential combinatorial properties, so that algorithmic optimizations can be transferred to these extensions.
