The act or process of inferring by deduction or induction

An inference is a conclusion that you draw about something by using information that you already have about it. There were two inferences to be drawn from her letter. = conclusion
a conclusion arrived at inductively or deductively
(1) This is an umbrella term referring to a final outcome of a study The outcome may consist of a conclusion about, an understanding of, or an explanation for an event, a behavior, a relationship, or a case (2) This is “a conclusion reached” where there is either (a) a “deduction from premises that are accepted as true” or (b) an induction by “deriving a conclusion from factual statements taken as evidence for the conclusion” (Angeles, 1981, p 133) See also deductive inference (in research cycle), deductive logic, inductive inference (in research cycle), inductive logic, meta-inference (or integrated mixed inference), and retroductive inference Back to the top
the process of reasoning from observations to interpretations/conclusions
a logical conclusion or judgment that is explicitly supported by data, evidence, and information gathered as part of the teacher evaluation process See Data, Evidence, High Inference, Information, Low Inference
A conclusion reached through reasoning Inference is used to reach conclusions when information is implied but not stated as a certainty
An explanation for an observation
the reasoning involved in drawing a conclusion or making a logical judgment on the basis of circumstantial evidence and prior conclusions rather than on the basis of direct observation
the process of reasoning whereby one statement (the conclusion) is derived from one or more other statements (the premises)
The movement of thought to a conclusion or generalization from starting points of premises or particular observations Inferences are generally categorized as either deductive or inductive
Inference is the process of automatically adding new facts to a knowledge base by applying rules of inference to the axioms and already-inferred facts of the knowledge base CYC® currently uses two rules of inference in its general theorem proving, modus ponens and modus tollens
to draw a conclusion that is not explicit to the subject matter
An inference is reasoning based on observation and experience To infer is to arrive at a decision or opinion by reasoning from known facts For example, I can see that someone is smiling From this, I can infer from my experience that he is happy It is particularly easy to think that an inference is a fact It takes critical thinking to distinguish between the two In the example of the smiling student, I do not know that the student is happy He may be smiling for some other reason
{i} act of deriving, act of inferring; speculation; drawing of a conclusion
- Assumption based on an observation
A logical conclusion drawn using one of several methods of reasoning, knowledge and data See also: Abduction, Deduction, Induction
– The logical process by which new facts are derived from known facts Put simply, drawing conclusions
A conclusion based on a premise [DEC]
That which inferred; a truth or proposition drawn from another which is admitted or supposed to be true; a conclusion; a deduction
Any judgment that a given proposition is true on the basis of the truth of one or more other propositions
A conclusion arrived at from facts and by reasoning Example: If you arrived at a gathering of friends and one of them was sitting in front of a decorated cake and blowing out candles, you would make the inference that it was a birthday celebration and the person celebrating the birthday was the one blowing out the candles
Inference is the act of drawing conclusions about something on the basis of information that you already have. It had an extremely tiny head and, by inference, a tiny brain
A series of wffs or propositions in which some (called premises) support another (called the conclusion); also the act of concluding the conclusion from the premises See conclusion; deduction; derivation; induction; premise; proof
Inductive inferences or inductive generalizations are abstractions or constructs based on information or measurements from a sample or set of direct observations Inductive inferences or generalizations however are no more true or contain no more information than the observations or measures upon which they are based or drawn Deductive inferences are conclusions derived from a set of premises which are usually inductive inferences or generalizations A deductive inference or conclusion draws its truth value from the premises and its validity from the logic/language structure A sound argument is one which is both true and valid A mistaken or false deductive inference or conclusion is often the result of an error in the preliminary reasoning (See logical fallacies )
ideas or facts that are implied or suggested rather than stated outright; evidence is usually some "prior knowledge"
inference engine
(Bilgisayar) An inference engine is a computer program that tries to derive answers from a knowledge base. It is the "brain" that expert systems use to reason about the information in the knowledge base for the ultimate purpose of formulating new conclusions
deductive inference
inference in which the conclusion is of no greater generality than the premises
deductive inference
inference in which the conclusion is just as certain as the premises
