Knowledge compilation (KC) is a research area which aims to preprocess information to improve the time required to solve highly-demanding computational tasks (NP and Beyond NP problems). Pioneered more than two decades ago, KC is nowadays a very active field, being at the intersection of several areas of AI and computer science. This includes knowledge representation, tractable reasoning, algorithms, complexity theory and databases. As a result, KC is now providing a meeting point for several active research areas, while offering great potential for new synergies and advancements.
In this talk, after an introduction to knowledge compilation, I will focus on the language of Decision-DNNF representations that is often used as a target language for compiling propositional formulae. I will explain why this language is appealing and present some compilation algorithms for generating Decision-DNNF representations.
