Abstract

Various probabilistic description logics (DLs) have been proposed for dealing with the uncertainty endemic to many domain knowledge representation scenarios. A particular class of such formalisms focuses on representing knowledge that is certain, but holds only in some uncertain contexts. In this paper, we consider an extension of those formalisms that allows an agent to influence the choice of the context and minimise its subjective cost. This is achieved through a combination of the light-weight DL EL and influence diagrams, a graphical model for representing decision situations, and their potential costs, under uncertainty.
