Abstract

Reasoning often involves deliberations in different perspectives. Distinct perspectives or views support knowledge acquisition and representation suitable for different types of inference in the same discourse. In decision analysis, for instance, state transition diagrams, influence diagrams, and decision trees provide alternative perspectives to the same decision problem; the different frameworks are best suited for different stages of decision modeling, evaluation, and analysis. This paper presents a new methodology for decision making over time and under uncertainty. We identify a formal basis that supports representation and reasoning from different perspectives. We address how to integrate information from various prospects. We propose how to incrementally extend the reasoning ontology. We also discuss the practical potential of the proposed paradigm.
