Summarizing Knowledge Base with Modal Conditionals
Work proposes and evaluates a method of summarizing transaction base with conditional formulas and their modal extensions. Modality expresses certainty levels using phrases ‘It is possible, that’ and ‘I believe, that’. Method is based on previous works on grounding of natural language statements. Semantics of conditionals, as opposed to associative rules, are consistent with their conventional natural language meaning. A software simulation is described and implemented. Some interesting results are discussed showing methods pros and cons.
