Knowledge Representation is a multidisciplinary subject that applies theories and techniques from three other fields:
. Logic provides the formal structure and rules of inference.
. Ontology defines the kinds of things that exist in the application domain.
. Computation supports the applications that
distinguish knowledge representation from pure
It is a very good intellectual exercise to the researchers and teachers in higher education to understand and get familiarity in the knowledge representation schemes, which helps them in formalizing their ideas.
. Introduction to Knowledge Representation
. History of KR in East and West
. Formal Language : Artificial Language Vs Natural Language
. Navya Nyaya formal Language – A practical approach
. Western Formal Language – An introduction
. Synergy of the both – An experiment
. Symbolic Logic
. Prolog/Perl Syntax
