The Core Method: Connectionist Model Generation for First-Order Logic Programs
Knowledge based artificial networks networks have been applied quite successfully to propositional knowledge representation and reasoning tasks. However, as soon as these tasks are extended to structured objects and structure-sensitive processes it is not obvious at all how neural symbolic systems should look like such that they are truly connectionist and allow for a declarative reading at the same time. The core method aims at such an integration. It is a method for connectionist model generation using recurrent networks with feed-forward core. After an introduction to the core method, this paper will focus on possible connectionist representations of structured objects and their use in structure-sensitive reasoning tasks.
