On the Logic of Defaults

Hector Geffner

We present an alternative interpretation of defaults which draws on probability theory and notions of relevance. The result is a system made up of a body of six rules which appears to overcome some of the weaknesses of other non-monotonic logics proposed in AI. We also analyze several examples and discuss some of the issues that require further research.
