Scope & Description

Knowledge representation is a lively and well-established field of AI, where knowledge and belief is represented declaratively and suitable for machine processing. It is often claimed that this declarative nature makes knowledge representation cognitively more adequate than e.g. sub-symbolic approaches, such as machine learning. This cognitive adequacy has important ramifications for the explainability of approaches in knowledge representation, which on its turn is essential for the trustworthiness of these approaches. However, exactly how cognitive adequacy is ensured has been often left implicit, and connections with cognitive science and psychology have only recently been taken up.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together experts from fields including artificial intelligence, psychology, cognitive science and philosophy to discuss important questions related to cognitive aspects of knowledge representation, such as:

Keynote Talk

The keynote talk will be given by Claudia Schon (Hochschule Trier, Germany).

Towards Modeling Aspects of Human Reasoning.
Abstract: Unlike automated reasoning, human reasoning does not adhere to logical rules exclusively. This is also reflected in the observation of Kahneman (and others) that the human mind seems to be based on two integrated systems: a System 1 that works quickly and unconsciously, and a System 2 that works slowly and calculates logically. System 1 embodies intuitions and fast reactions to sensory signals, while System 2 represents deliberate thinking and abstract problem solving. Therefore, if we want to model aspects of human reasoning, a combination of statistical procedures and logical reasoning is promising. The talk will present different ways to incorporate statistical methods into the automated reasoning process together with lessons learnt from this field.
