Nonmonotonic Logic for Use in Information Retrieval: An Exploratory Paper.
Hurt, C. D.
Information Processing & Management, v34 n1 p35-41 Jan 1998
Monotonic logic requires reexamination of the entire logic string when there is a contradiction. Nonmonotonic logic allows the user to withdraw conclusions in the face of contradiction without harm to the logic string, which has considerable application to the field of information searching. Artificial intelligence models and neural networks based on nonmonotonic logic have the potential for more robust findings. (Author/AEF)
