  • Patent number: 11580146
    Abstract: A rule storing unit stores a set of rules each defining facts and a relation between the facts, and weights representing importance levels of the rules. An input data storing unit stores input data. A query storing unit stores a query. An importance level calculating unit calculates an importance level of each fact type of the facts defined by the rules. A fact data generating unit generates, for each fact type, fact data in which true/false is observed as a fact by a number corresponding to the importance level of the fact type, from the input data. A fact data storing unit stores the fact data. An inference performing unit performs probabilistic inference of a result of the query by using the fact data, the rules, and the weights. An output unit outputs a result of the inference.
