On the Intended Interpretations of Actions
Abstract. In this paper we address the problem of commonsense reasoning about action by appealing to Occam’s razor—we should accept the simplest hypothesis explaining the observed phenomena—to generalise the commonsense law of inertia. In particular, we identify the intended interpretation of an action as the simplest transformation induced by an action on a world to produce a possible successor. We formalise the notion of simplicity of a transformation as its conditional Kolmogorov complexity. Finally we show that the framework can solve simple commonsense reasoning problems and indicate its role as a first step towards capturing commonsense notions of causation.
