Reasoning in Expressive Description Logics under Infinitely Valued Gödel Semantics
MetadataShow full item record
Fuzzy Description Logics (FDLs) combine classical Description Logics with the semantics of Fuzzy Logics in order to represent and reason with vague knowledge. Most FDLs using truth values from the interval [0,1] have been shown to be undecidable in the presence of a negation constructor and general concept inclusions. One exception are those FDLs whose semantics is based on the infinitely valued Gödel t-norm (G). We extend previous decidability results for the FDL G-ALC to deal with complex role inclusions, nominals, inverse roles, and qualified number restrictions. Our novel approach is based on a combination of the known crispification technique for finitely valued FDLs and an automata-based procedure for reasoning in G-ALC.
