Inference Policies
Paul Lehner
It is suggested that an AI inference system should reflect an inference policy that is tailored to the domain of problems to which it is applied -- and furthermore that an inference policy need not conform to any general theory of rational inference or induction. We note, for instance, that Bayesian reasoning about the probabilistic characteristics of an inference domain may result in the specification of an nonBayesian procedure for reasoning within the inference domain. In this paper, the idea of an inference policy is explored in some detail. To support this exploration, the characteristics of some standard and nonstandard inference policies are examined.
