Jacques Robin

- Motivation and goal
- Design principles of the ROARS framework
- Reuse-oriented software engineering techniques
- CHRV as a platform for automated reasoning service integration
- Current status and next steps

- Most information system issues related to:
- Scalable and secure concurrent access
- Component-based web deployment
- Software process

- J2EE, .Net, Web Services, SQL,XML,UML,RUP

- Embedded automated reasoning

- Automated reasoning techniques over last two decades:
- Diversification (abduction, inheritance,belief revision, belief update, planning, constraint solving,induction, analogy)
- Practical scalability
- Rigorous formal foundations

- Cutting-edge AR techniques remain ignored by commercial software

- Prohibitive cost of incorporating AR techniques in mainstream software
- Too costly to develop from scratch
- Available AR software not built for integration, extension and reuse

- Develop a framework for low-cost engineering of inference engines, knowledge bases and applications with embedded automated reasoning
- By exploiting conceptual reuse among automated reasoning techniques at the software architecture level

Universally quantified variables in class, attribute, association and method positions

In essence, meta-circular UML (M3 = M2 = M1)

S,G,A,T trans(subclassOf)(S,G) type(G.A) = T type(S.A) = T

Universally quantified variables in predicates, functions, and formula positions

R,X,Y trans(R)(X, Y) (R(X, Y) (R(X, Z) trans(R)(Z,Y))

In essence, UML:

classes, objects, attributes, associations (relations), operations

Predicates (relations) with universally quantified variable arguments,

and recursive functions, but no structural aggregation of properties nor distinguished generalization relation

D,G day(D) rain(D) ground(G) state(G,wet)

ground(grass)

Only propositions (no variables, relations, classes nor objects)

CHRV

- CHRV engine versatile basic component with very high reuse potential for ROARS framework
- Integrates and generalizes three main logical rule based reasoning and programming paradigms:
- Conditional rewrite rule forward chaining for constraint simplification and non-monotonic reasoning
- h1 ... hn g1 ... gn | (b11 ... b1n) ... (bk1 ... bkm)

- Event-triggered production rules forward chaining for constraint propagation and monotonic reasoning
- h1 ... hn g1 ... gn | (b11 ... b1n) ... (bk1 ... bkm)

- Backtracking search of alternatives in disjunctive bodies for simulating Prolog's backward chaining and labeling in finite domain constraint solving

- Conditional rewrite rule forward chaining for constraint simplification and non-monotonic reasoning
- CHRV syntax covers full first-order logic in implicative normal form:
- atom1 ... atomn atomn+1 ... atomm
- Not limited to Horn logic

- Open-world assumption, but selective closed-world assumption with additional propagation rules

- Integrates object-oriented and logical rule based programming and reasoning
- Multiple, single source, non-monotonic inheritance (overriding) of:
- Attribute and method type constraints and values
- Method code

- Ternary logic well-founded semantics with CWA for negation as failure, non-monotonic inheritance and interferences between inheritance and deduction
- High-order syntax allowing logical variables in position of function predicate, atom, object, classe, attribute and method names
- Permits logical meta-rules and object-oriented reflection while remaining within first-order logic semantics and complexity

- Operator to reify formulas as terms in rule bodies
- Database aggregation operators in rule bodies
- Backtrackable explicit knowlegde base updates operators in rule bodies with transaction roll-back semantics guaranteeing consistency (but no built-in turth-maintenance)
- Procedural operators in rule bodies

- CHORD:Constraint Handling Object-oriented Rules with Disjunctive bodies
- FPIM layer in ROARS framework intermediate representation between two object-oriented layers:
- KPIM in UML and OCL
- PSM in UML profile for J2EE or .Net
- Using purely relational CHRV as FPIM layer language would make automated transformations from KPIM to FPIM to PSM uselessly complex

- CHORD key idea:
- Extends CHRV with Frame Logic's object-oriented features

- Syntactically, add:
- High-order OO frame molecules and OO path expressions as constraints
start ==> t:square, quadrilateral[side1 *=> line[length *=> int], ..., side4 *=> line], square::quadrilateral.

T:square ==> T.side1.length = T.side2.length, ..., T.side1.length = T.side4.length | true.

- Reification operator

- High-order OO frame molecules and OO path expressions as constraints
- Semantically:
- Soundly integrate Frame Logic's multiple, single-source, non-monotonic inheritance under CWA with CHRV deduction and abduction under OWA

- Distinction between user-defined and built-in constraints in CHR can be generalized into constraints locally defined in rule base component and externally defined in server rule base component

- Investigate inheritance built in pattern matching for CHORD, by adapting techniques from ordered sort feature term unification (Aït-Kaci, Cortiuz, etc)
- Silva, Robin

- Cutting-edge automated reasoning techniques:
- Conceptually highly compositional
- Compositionality never exploited by architecture of available automated reasoning software
- Result in prohibitive cost of incorporating these techniques in mainstream applications

- ROARS:
- Exploit, adapt and extend cutting-edge, reuse-oriented software engineering techniques to lower cost of automated reasoning software development
- Define software process integrating MDD, CBD and AOD
- Define CHORD language by extending CHRV with Frame Logic style object-orientation and inheritance
- Use software process to develop scalable, adaptive CHORD inference engine as a first large grained ROARS component integrating deduction, abduction, belief revision, inheritance and constraint solving services
