6. Outline • Knowledge-based agents • Wumpus world • Logic in general—models and entailment • Propositional (Boolean) logic • Equivalence, validity, satisfiability • Inference rules and theorem proving • Forward chaining • Backward chaining • Resolution

7. Knowledge bases • Knowledge base • Set of sentences in a formal language • Declarative approach to building an agent (or other system) • TELL it what is needs to know • Then it can ASK itself what to do • Answers should follow from the KB • Agents can be viewed at the knowledge level • i.e., what they know, regardless of how implemented • Or at the implementation level • i.e., data structures in KB and algorithms that manipulate them

8. A simple knowledge-based agent • The agent must be able to: • Represent states, actions, etc. • Incorporate new percepts • Update internal representations of the world • Deduce hidden properties of the world • Deduce appropriate actions

9. Wumpus world PEAS description • Performance measure • Gold +1000; Death -1000 • -1 per step; -10 for using the arrow • Environment • Squares adjacent to wumpus are smelly • Squares adjacent to pit are breezy • Glitter iff gold is in the same square • Shooting kills wumpus if you are facing it • Grabbing picks up gold if in same square • Releasing drops the gold in same square • Actuators • Left turn, right turn, forward, grab, release, shoot • Sensors • Breeze, glitter, smell

10. Wumpus world characterization • Observable?? • No, only local perception • Deterministic?? • Yes, outcomes exactly specified • Episodic?? • No, sequential at the level of actions • Static?? • Wumpus and pits do not move • Discrete?? • Yes • Single-agent?? • Yes, Wumpus is essentially a natural feature

19. Other tight spots • Breeze in (1,2) and (2, 1) • No safe actions • Smell in (1,1) • Cannot move • Can use a strategy of coercion • Shoot straight ahead • Wumpus was theredeadsafe • Wumpus wasn’t there  safe

20. Logic in general • Logics are formal languages for representing information • Such that conclusions can be drawn • Syntax defines the sentences in the language • Semantics define the “meaning” of sentences • i.e., define truth of a sentence in a world • E.g., the language of arithematics • x+2≥y is a sentence; x2+2> is not a sentence • x+2≥y is true iff the number x+2 is no less than the number y • x+2≥y is true in a world where x=7, y=1 • x+2≥y is false in a world where x=0, y=6

21. Entailment • Entailment means that one thing follows from another • Knowledge base KB entails sentence • If and only if is true in all worlds where KB is true • E.g., the KB containing “the giants won” and “the Reds won” entails “Either the Giants won or the Reds won” • E.g., x+y=4 entails 4=x+y • Entailment is a relationship between sentences (i.e., syntax) that is based on semantics • Note: brains process syntax (of some sort)

22. Models • Logicians typically think in terms of models, which are formally structured worlds with respect to which truth can be evaluated • We say m is a model of a sentence • is the set of all models of • Then if and only if • E.g, KB=Giants won and Reds won, and =Giants won

23. Entailment in the wumpus world • Situation after detecting nothing in [1,1], moving right, breeze in [2,1] • Consider possible models for ?s assuming only pits • 3 Boolean choices  8 possible models

24. Wumpus models

25. Wumpus models • KB=wumpus-world rules+observations

26. Wumpus models • KB=wumpus-world rules+observations • =“[1,2] is safe”, , proved by model checking

27. Wumpus models • KB=wumpus-world rules+observations

28. Wumpus models • KB=wumpus-world rules+observations • =“[2,2] is safe”,

29. Inference • = sentence can be derived from KB by procedure i • Consequences of KB are a haystack; is a needle. • Entailment = needle in haystack; inference=finding it! • Soundness: • i is sound if whenever, it is also true that • Completeness: • i is complete if whenever, it is also true that • Preview: • We will define a logic (first-order logic) which is expressive enough to say almost anything of interest, and for which there exists a sound and complete inference procedure • i.e., the procedure will answer any question whose answer follows from what is known about KB

30. Propositional logic: Syntax • Propositional logic is the simplest logic—illustrates basic ideas • The proposition symbols P1, P2 etc. are sentences • If S is a sentence, is a sentence (negation) • If and are sentences, is a sentence (conjunction) • If and are sentences, is a sentence (disjunction) • If and are sentences, is a sentence (implication) • If and are sentences, is a sentence (bicondition)

31. Propositional logic: Semantics • Each model specifies true/false for each proposition symbol • E.g., true true true • With these symbols, 8 possible models, can be enumerated automatically • Rules for evaluating truth with respect to a model m: • is true iff is false • is true iff is true and is true • is true iff is true or is true • is true iff is false or is true i.e., is false iff is true and is false • is true iff is true or is true • Simple recursive process evaluates an arbitrary sentence, e.g.,

32. Truth tables for connectives

33. Wumpus world sentences • Let be true if there is a pit in [i,j] • Let be true if there is a breeze in [i,j] • “Pits cause breezes in adjacent squares” • “A square is breezy if and only if there is an adjacent pit”

34. Truth tables for inference • Enumerate rows (different assignments to symbols) • If KB is true in row, check that is too

35. Inference by enumeration • Depth-first enumeration of all models in sound and complete • for n symbols; problem is co-NP-complete

36. Logical equivalence • Two sentences are logically equivalent iff true in same models: • if and only if and

37. Validity and satisfiability • A sentence is valid if it is true in all models • E.g., • Validity is connected to inference via the Deduction Theorem • if and only if is valid • A sentence is satisfiable if it is true in some models • E.g., • A sentence is unsatisfiableif it is true in no model • E.g., • Satisfiability is connected to inference via the following: • if and only if is unsatisfiable • i.e., prove by reductio ad absurdum

38. Proof methods • Proof methods divide into (roughly) two kinds: • Application of inference rules • Legitimate (sound) generation of new sentences from old • Proof = a sequence of inference rule applications • Can use inference rules as operators in a standard search algorithm • Typically require translation of sentences into a norm form • Model checking • Truth table enumeration (always exponential in n) • Improved backtracking, e.g., Davis-Putnam-Logemann-Loveland (DPLL) • Heurisitc search in model space (sound but incomplete) • E.g., min-conflicts-like hill-climbing algorithms

39. Forward and backward chaining • Horn From (restricted) • KB=conjunction of Horn clauses • Horn clause = • Proposition symbol • (Conjunction of symbols) symbol • E.g., • Modus Ponens (for Horn Form): complete for Horn KBs • Can be used with forward chaining or backward chaining • These algorithms are very natural and run in linear time

40. Forward chaining • Idea: fire any rule whose premises are satisfied in the KB, add its conclusion to the KB, until query is found

50. Proof of completeness • FC derives every atomic sentence that is entailed by KB • FC reaches a fixed point where no new atomic sentences are derived • Consider the final state as a model m, assigning true/false to symbols • Every clause in the original KB is true in m • Proof: Suppose a clause is false in m Then is true in m and b is false in m Therefore the algorithm has not reached a fixed point • Hence m is a model of KB • If , q is true in every model of KB, including m • General idea: construct any model of KB by sound inference, check
