Defeasible Logic on an Embedded Microcontroller
Defeasible logic is a system of reasoning in which rules have exceptions, and when rules conflict, the one that applies most specifically to the situation wins out. This paper reports a successful application of defeasible logic to the implementation of an embedded control system. The system was programmed in d-Prolog (a defeasible extension of Prolog), and the inferences were compiled into a truth table that was encoded on a low-end PIC microcontroller. Advantages of defeasible logic include conciseness and correct handling of the passage of time. It is distinct from fuzzy logic and probabilistic logic, addressing a different set of problems.
