The following are the main points you should have learned from this chapter:

  • Relational representations are used when an agent requires models to be given or learned before it knows what individuals it will encounter.
  • Many of the representations in earlier chapters can be made relational.
  • Situation calculus represents time in terms of the action of an agent, using the init constant and the do function.
  • Event calculus allows for continuous and discrete time and axiomatizes what follows from the occurrence of events.
  • Inductive logic programming can be used to learn relational models, even when the values of features are meaningless names.
  • The independent choice logic allows for the specification of probabilistic models before the individuals are known.
