Abstract [en]

This paper proposes the use of description logics as a representational framework for learning composite concepts. Description logics are restricted variants of first-order logic providing a form of logical bias that dates back to semantic networks. Some recent work investigates concept learning in the context of these formalisms. Also, having recognized the importance of part-whole hierarchies in commonsense reasoning, researchers have started to incorporate part-of reasoning into description logics. In our approach we represent composite concepts in such a formalism. On one hand we have a relatively rich representation language with an infinite space of possible concepts. On the other hand we have special constructs for handling part-of relations that can be used in the learning algorithm to reduce the overall search space.
