    This chapter begins by discussing the issue of normative standards, in particular the role human performance plays in specifying these standards for common sense and rationality. It then discusses commonsense knowledge and commonsense reasoning, and rationality. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented. Commonsense reasoning is one of the branches of artificial intelligence (AI) that is concerned with simulating the human ability to make presumptions about the type and essence of ordinary situations they encounter every day. These assumptions include judgments about the physical properties, purpose, intentions and behavior of people and objects, as well as possible .

    The famous saying, "Common sense is not so common," by Voltaire (Dictionnaire philosophique, ), depends upon human experiences and individual perceptions. Commonsense reasoning (CR) in artificial intelligence (AI) includes domains like natural language processing (NLP), computer vision, and robotic manipulation. Commonsense reasoning that draws upon world knowledge derived from spatial and temporal relations, laws of physics, causes and effects, and social conventions is a feature of human intelligence. However, it is difficult to instill such commonsense reasoning abilities into artificial intelligence implemented by deep neural networks.

ISBNThe Logical Rules of Commonsense Reasoning: /ch In this chapter we describe a model of commonsense reasoning that has been acquired from our numerous investigations on the human reasoning modes used byAuthor: Xenia Naidenova.

Commonsense reasoning provides two important benefits to computer applications: First, commonsense reasoning can be used to give applications a greater degree of understanding about the human world. Users can be freed from having to state everything explicitly because commonsense reasoning can be used to infer what is obvious to a person.

To endow computers with common sense is one of the major long-term goals of Artificial Intelligence research. One approach to this problem is to formalize commonsense reasoning using mathematical logic.

Commonsense Reasoning is a detailed, high-level reference on logic-based commonsense reasoning. It uses the event calculus, a highly powerful and usable tool for commonsense reasoning. To endow computers with common sense is one of the major long-term goals of Artificial Intelligence research.

It uses the event calculus, a highly powerful and usable tool for commonsense reasoning, which Erik Mueller demonstrates as the most effective tool for the broadest range of applications. Commonsense reasoning is a long-standing challenge for deep learning.

For example, it is difficult to use neural networks to tackle the Winograd Schema dataset (Levesque et al., ). In this paper, we present a simple method for commonsense reasoning with neural networks, using unsupervised learning.

Key to our method is the use of language models. CHAPTER 3. COMMONSENSE REASONING 33 Issues in commonsense reasoning In her book, \Common sense, Reasoning, and Rationality", Renee Elio describes com-mon sense as found in \folk psychology" area: \sound and prudent but often unso-phisticated judgment" and \the unre°ective opinions of ordinary [persons]." Although.

The result is a book that is clearly written, shows a command of the contemporary literature in a number of fields, and attempts to offer rigorous solutions that nonetheless take into account commonsense opinions about the topics."--Review of Metaphysics. Commonsense Reasoning: An Event Calculus Based Approach is a detailed, high-level reference on logic-based commonsense reasoning.

It uses the event calculus, a highly powerful and usable tool for commonsense reasoning, which Erik Mueller demonstrates as the most effective tool for the broadest range of s: 4. To enable better reasoning about events, we improve upon existing resources of commonsense knowledge by adding nine new causal and inferential dimensions.

Shown in Fig-ure 2, we define dimensions as denoting a particular type of If-Then knowledge, answers to questions about an event, collected through crowdsourcing.

Contrary to most previous. Commonsense reasoning is a major challenge for question answering [2, 4, 9, 16]. Take Fig. 1 as an example. Answering both questions requires a natural language understanding system that has the ability of reasoning based on commonsense knowledge about the world.

This chapter argues that the most important issue for the cognitive science of reasoning is whether deduction provides a computational-level theory of a substantial amount of everyday, commonsense thought.

The chapter is organized as follows. It begins by outlining what deduction is, in abstract terms, and then considers various ways in which it can be related to human reasoning.

of a phenomenon, but that it is a story which attempts to make the reason for the occurrence of the phenomenon obvious. That is to say, it seeks to make the phenomenon become the natural working out of the presumed imagined nature of things.

It deploys arguments of natural necessity, not mainly of logical necessity. This paper describes how the "SP theory of intelligence", outlined in an Appendix, may throw light on aspects of commonsense reasoning (CSR) and commonsense knowledge (CSK) (together shortened to CSRK), as discussed in another paper by Ernest Davis and Gary Marcus (DM).

quire commonsense reasoning. Further analysis shows that our system discovers and leverages useful evidence from an external commonsense knowledge base, which is missing in existing neural network models and help derive the correct answer.

1 Introduction Commonsense reasoning is a major challenge for question answering [9,4,16, 2].to the particular phenomenon at hand are deliberately left out of an approach has been customary in much research in commonsense reasoning, most conspicuously in the assumption of logical omniscience: that an agent knows (and eveninstantly) all logical consequences of his beliefs, generally.Sociology Index.

Commonsense Reasoning. Commonsense reasoning is also referred to as mundane sense reasoning is a term used by ethnomethodologists, derived from Alfred Schutz (), referring to the practical or everyday reasoning used by members of society to create and sustain a sense of social reality as being objective, factual.
