    A Project for the Construction of an Italian Lexical Knowledge Base in the Framework of WordNet,
    This paper describes a project that aims to develop a large-size Lexical Knowledge Base (LKB) for the Italian language. The project began because presently there is no LKB available for Italian, on an electronic support, that can be used both for natural language processing and lexicography applications. To develop the LKB techniques developed in artificial intelligence that allow acquisition and automatic data structuring will be used,

    A Mechanized Multi-Context Solution to McCarthy's GLM Problem,
    In this paper I present a context-based mechanization in GETFOL of the Glasgow-London-Moscow (GLM) problem, an instance of a more general problem called the qualification problem ([McC80]). The mechanization is based on a formalization of the GLM problem using multi-context systems (MC-systems) that is aimed to overcome some epistemological limitations of a previous formalization using circumscription. Though this approach solves many difficulties from a representational point of view, its mechanization raises some theoretical and practical problems that are not faced in the formalization. Since these problems don't depend on the particular example, their solution can be extended to context-based mechanizations of a broad class of problems,

    Reasoning about Theory Adequacy. A New Solution to the Qualification Problem,
    One of the main problems in commonsense reasoning is the qualification problem, ie. the fact that the number of qualifications for most general commonsense statements is virtually infinite. In this paper we argue that a solution to this problem should be based on a (meta) conjecture that the theory used to reason about the world contains all the necessary information. We also show that this theory adequacy conjecture can be made before the application of any of the formalisms proposed in the past, eg. circumscription. Finally, we present a formalization of the solution proposed using contexts and circumscription and use it to solve McCarthy's Glasgow-London-Moscow example,

    APASCI 1.0: acquisizione,
    Questo lavoro descrive le acquisizioni della base dati alla quale è stato dato il nome di APASCI [Ric92], un acronimo per Acoustic Phonetic And Spontaneous speech Corpus of IRST. APASCI comprende sia materiale vocale che possa garantire una copertura adeguata dei fenomeni acustici della lingua italiana, sia materiale spontaneo ottenuto durante simulazioni [FG91, CFGLar] in cui i soggetti credono di interagire con una macchina,

    Viewpoint Dependence in Face Recognition,
    This paper analyzes the problem of face recognition as a cognitive process. Specifically, it studies the influence of the angle from which the face to recognize is observed. Following the examination of studies that considered this problem in the past, two psychophysical experiments are presented that seek to further clarify the problem. It is shown that the subject gives different responses according to target viewpoint, with the surest and most rapid recognition coming from observation of the right-hand side of the face.,

    A Foundation of Metalogical Reasoning: OM Pairs (Propositional Case),
    In this paper we propose a framework, called OM pairs, for the formalization of reasoning with meta theories. OM pairs allow us to generate deductively the object theory and/or the meta theory by imposing via appropriate reflection rules, the relation we want to hold between the object and meta theory themselves. We study OM pairs from three different points of view: we compare the stength of the object and meta theories generated by different OM pairs. For each OM pair we study the precise form of the object theory and meta theory. For each OM pair we study the relation between the models of the meta theory and the object theory,
