If the aforementioned cases from DOD's Encyclopedia of Ethical Failure were viewed through the lens of domain theory, they would fall within the conventional domain.
Where rules may come and go within the conventional domain, the rules in the personal and moral domains are few and enduring, giving a sense of permanence to this part of domain theory.
33) Using domain theory as a lens, we see that sexual assault is a violation of the moral domain, where mutual respect and concern for the victim's well-being are superseded by the perpetrator's selfish desires.
34) Using domain theory as a lens, these are items of the personal domain--personal rights of expression and association.
28] combine domain theory with the causality structure of Petri nets.
HAMB'S input consists of the file containing the set of cases that it will use to make its discoveries (the discovery database), an optional testing set of examples (the testing database), and a domain theory file containing problem- and domainspecific information.
The problem- and domain-specific information is kept in a separate file called a domain theory file.
During the evaluations of HAMB, several pairs of attributes and rule clauses were identified that were essentially equivalent in the cases given to HAMB but were not specified as equivalent in the domain theory.
Learning and Improving Domain Theory Automated planning implies the presence of a domain theory--the descriptions of the actions available to the planner.
This phase is closely connected to the aspect of learning and improving the domain theory but encompasses only preprocessing of a given domain theory.
A system that seeks to improve an incomplete domain theory would conduct learning in this phase, as might a planner seeking to improve plan quality based on actual execution experience.
Most CBR approaches to planning that do not assume the existence of a complete domain theory use transformational analogy for plan adaptation, although derivational analogy can also be used.
