Abstract

Neuro-Symbolic Integration is an interdisciplinary area that endeavours to unify neural networks and symbolic logic. The goal is to create a system that combines the advantages of neural networks (adaptive behaviour, robustness, tolerance of noise and probability) and symbolic logic (validity of computations, generality, higher-order reasoning). Several different approaches have been proposed in the past. However, the existing neuro-symbolic networks provide only a limited coverage of the techniques used in computational logic. In this paper, we outline the areas of neuro-symbolism where computational logic has been implemented so far, and analyse the problematic areas. We show why certain concepts cannot be implemented using the existing neuro-symbolic networks, and propose four main improvements needed to build neuro-symbolic networks of the future.
