  4. 4. • Crossing the street in traffic. We’ve all done this: UNCERTAINTY AND UNCERTAIN REASONING : Intuition warmup you’re in a hurry, so instead of waiting for the “walk” sign you look both ways and see that the nearest cars are far enough away that you can cross safely before they arrive where you are. You start walking and (I’m guessing) make it across just fine.
  5. 5. • The cop and the man in the window. UNCERTAINTY AND UNCERTAIN REASONING : Intuition warmup You’re a police officer out on patrol late at night. You hear an alarm go off and follow the sound to a jewelry store. When you arrive, you see a broken window and a man crawling out of it wearing black clothes and a mask, carrying a sack which turns out to be full of jewelry.
  6. 6. • Medical diagnosis 1. the person has a cold (h1), 2. lung disease (h2), 3. heartburn (h3). 4. tuberculosis (h4) UNCERTAINTY AND UNCERTAIN REASONING : Intuition warmup Suppose we observe a person coughing, and we consider three hypotheses as explanations.
  7. 7. • Doing science requires the ability to cope with uncertainty UNCERTAINTY • Human familiar deductive logic is great for reasoning • With science & machines, we need a procedure for determining which conclusions to draw This should take the form of an inductive logic.
