Reasoning in Context for AI Applications
Papers from the AAAI Workshop
Patrick Brézillon, Roy Turner, Jean-Charles Pomerol, and Elise Turner, Cochairs
AI applications must take context into account in order to behave appropriately. To do this, context and contextual knowledge should be represented explicitly. The goal of this workshop was to focus on the role of explicit representation of context in AI applications. This focus allowed participants to explore how theoreticalresults about reasoning in context could be used for specific applications and how the use of context in a particular application might be generalized to help others. Some of the topics of the workshop were: What are appropriate representations of context for AI applications? How can contextual information be used in AI programs? How does the application and domain affect the representation of context? How can existing applications be extended to explicitly represent context? How can contextual information be learned and updated by AI programs from their experience?
