Transitive relations show up a lot in AI code, in this post we look at a couple of ways to code them that depend on what you can assume about your domain and what Prolog you're using.
When we start doing knowledge representation in Prolog, we start needing to describe the properties of relations so we can infer more than is in our recorded data. Symmetry, reflexivity and transitivity are the three main relationship properties you'll end up using. In this interactive post we take a look at how they can be encoded.
