Answer Set Programming (ASP) is a powerful rule-based language for knowledge representation and reasoning that has been developed in the field of logic programming and nonmonotonic reasoning. After more than twenty years from the introduction of ASP, the theoretical properties of the language are well understood and the solving technology has become mature for practical applications. In this paper, we first present the basics of the ASP language, and we then concentrate on its usage for knowledge representation and reasoning in real-world contexts. In particular, we report on the development of some industry-level applications with the ASP system DLV, and we illustrate two advanced development tools for ASP, namely ASPIDE and JDLV, which speed-up and simplify the implementation of applications.

Abstract

Answer Set Programming (ASP) is a powerful rule-based language for knowledge representation and reasoning that has been developed in the field of logic programming and nonmonotonic reasoning. After more than twenty years from the introduction of ASP, the theoretical properties of the language are well understood and the solving technology has become mature for practical applications. In this paper, we first present the basics of the ASP language, and we then concentrate on its usage for knowledge representation and reasoning in real-world contexts. In particular, we report on the development of some industry-level applications with the ASP system DLV, and we illustrate two advanced development tools for ASP, namely ASPIDE and JDLV, which speed-up and simplify the implementation of applications.
