A Knowledge Representation and Reasoning Module for a Dialogue System in a Mobile Robot

Luís Seabra Lopes, António J. S. Teixeira, Marcelo Quinderé

Abstract

The recent evolution of Carl, an intelligent mobile robot, is presented. The paper focuses on the new knowledge representation and reasoning module, developed to support high-level dialogue. This module supports the integration of information coming from different interlocutors and is capable of handling contradictory facts. The knowledge representation language is based on classical semantic networks, but incorporates some notions from UML. Question answering is based on deductive as well as inductive inference.
