Consistency of Scientific Knowledge Bases

Hidde de Jong, Nicolaas J. I. Mars, and Paul E. van der Vet

The Plinius-project at the University of Twente is aimed at constructing large-scale knowledge bases in scientific and engineering domains, through computer analysis of natural-language texts. One of the many problems in this endeavor is caused by inconsistencies in the scientific literature. In this short report (of which a fuller version is available [de Jong, 1992]) we describe our approach to the resolution of inconsistencies in largescale scientific and engineering knowledge bases.
