Syntactico-Semantic Reasoning using PCFG, MEBN, and PR-OWL

09/20/2018 ∙ by Shrinivasan R Patnaik Patnaikuni, et al. ∙ 0

Probabilistic context free grammars (PCFG) have been the core of the probabilistic reasoning based parsers for several years especially in the context of the NLP. Multi entity bayesian networks (MEBN) a First Order Logic probabilistic reasoning methodology and is widely adopted and used method for uncertainty reasoning. Further upper ontology like Probabilistic Ontology Web Language (PR-OWL) built using MEBN takes care of probabilistic ontologies which model and capture the uncertainties inherent in the domain's semantic information. The paper attempts to establish a link between probabilistic reasoning in PCFG and MEBN by proposing a formal description of PCFG driven by MEBN leading to usage of PR-OWL modeled ontologies in PCFG parsers.
