MODELLING THE MAN MACHINE INTERACTION - Erotetic Logic and Information Retrieval Systems

Antonio Bellacicco, Mario Vacca

Abstract

The usual communication between man and machine is a one way interaction. It can be upgraded considering a two way interaction if the basic constituents of an information retrieval system are deeply modified in their principles. In this paper we redefine, in a syntactical way, some concepts of the erotetic logic to make them more easily computable and show how them can be used to solve some problems in the field of information retrieval systems. The result is the possibility to build more flexible and powerful information retrieval systems.
