Representing the Real World

Lookup NU author(s): Emeritus Professor John Dobson



In this paper I want to take a look, from a more philisophical point of view, at some of the assumptions underlying the use of logic in knowledge based systems, and ask-and attempt to answer-the following question: Can a knowledge-based system represent the real world? The answer, briefly, is up to a point; but that point is not very far in any interesting direction.
