Ontology-based fuzzy-syllogistic reasoning
MetadataShow full item record
We discuss the Fuzzy-Syllogistic System (FSS) that consists of the well-known 256 categorical syllogisms, namely syllogistic moods, and Fuzzy- Syllogistic Reasoning (FSR), which is an implementation of the FSS as one complex approximate reasoning mechanism, in which the 256 moods are interpreted as fuzzy inferences. Here we introduce a sample application of FSR as ontology reasoner. The reasoner can associate up to 256 possible fuzzyinferences with truth ratios in [0,1] for every triple concept relationship of the ontology. We further discuss a transformation technique, by which the truth ratio of a fuzzy-inference can increase, by adapting the fuzzy-quantifiers of a fuzzy-inference to the syllogistic logic of the sample propositions.
