Reasoning about Data — A Rough Set Perspective

Zdzisław Pawlak


The paper contains some considerations concerning the relationship between decision rules and inference rules from the rough set theory perspective. It is shown that decision rules can be interpreted as a generalization of the modus ponens inference rule, however there is an essential difference between these two concepts. Decision rules in the rough set approach are used to describe dependencies in data, whereas modus ponens is used in general to derive conclusions from premises.
