Description:

Abstract:

I will talk about recent progress in implementing an efficient method for doing a type of inferencing called abduction, or inference to the best explanation.  I will illustrate its wide applicability to a variety of language interpretation problems.  I'll describe our recent work on implementing ontologies, or logical theories of commonsense domains.  Then I will show how we are applying all this to the interpretation of metaphors.
