Abstract
In the last decade, there has been a growing interest in applying AI technologies to implement complex data analytics over data streams. To this end, researchers in various fields have been organising a yearly event called the "Stream Reasoning Workshop" to share perspectives, challenges, and experiences around this topic. In this paper, the previous organisers of the workshops and other community members provide a summary of the main research results that have been discussed during the first six editions of the event. These results can be categorised into four main research areas: The first is concerned with the technological challenges related to handling large data streams. The second area aims at adapting and extending existing semantic technologies to data streams. The third and fourth areas focus on how to implement reasoning techniques, either considering deductive or inductive techniques, to extract new and valuable knowledge from the data in the stream. This summary is written not only to provide a crystallisation of the field, but also to point out distinctive traits of the stream reasoning community. Moreover, it also provides a foundation for future research by enumerating a list of use cases and open challenges, to stimulate others to join this exciting research area.

Inclusion Testing of Büchi Automata Based on Well-Quasiorders

Authors: Kyveli Doveri, Pierre Ganty, Francesco Parolini, and Francesco Ranzato

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 203, 32nd International Conference on Concurrency Theory (CONCUR 2021)


Abstract
We introduce an algorithmic framework to decide whether inclusion holds between languages of infinite words over a finite alphabet. Our approach falls within the class of Ramsey-based methods and relies on a least fixpoint characterization of ω-languages leveraging ultimately periodic infinite words of type uv^ω, with u a finite prefix and v a finite period of an infinite word. We put forward an inclusion checking algorithm between Büchi automata, called BAInc, designed as a complete abstract interpretation using a pair of well-quasiorders on finite words. BAInc is quite simple: it consists of two least fixpoint computations (one for prefixes and the other for periods) manipulating finite sets (of pairs) of states compared by set inclusion, so that language inclusion holds when the sets (of pairs) of states of the fixpoints satisfy some basic conditions. We implemented BAInc in a tool called BAIT that we experimentally evaluated against the state-of-the-art. We gathered, in addition to existing benchmarks, a large number of new case studies stemming from program verification and word combinatorics, thereby significantly expanding both the scope and size of the available benchmark set. Our experimental results show that BAIT advances the state-of-the-art on an overwhelming majority of these benchmarks. Finally, we demonstrate the generality of our algorithmic framework by instantiating it to the inclusion problem of Büchi pushdown automata into Büchi automata.

A Rice’s Theorem for Abstract Semantics

Authors: Paolo Baldan, Francesco Ranzato, and Linpeng Zhang

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 198, 48th International Colloquium on Automata, Languages, and Programming (ICALP 2021)


Abstract
Classical results in computability theory, notably Rice’s theorem, focus on the extensional content of programs, namely, on the partial recursive functions that programs compute. Later and more recent work investigated intensional generalisations of such results that take into account the way in which functions are computed, thus affected by the specific programs computing them. In this paper, we single out a novel class of program semantics based on abstract domains of program properties that are able to capture nonextensional aspects of program computations, such as their asymptotic complexity or logical invariants, and allow us to generalise some foundational computability results such as Rice’s Theorem and Kleene’s Second Recursion Theorem to these semantics. In particular, it turns out that for this class of abstract program semantics, any nontrivial abstract property is undecidable and every decidable overapproximation necessarily includes an infinite set of false positives which covers all values of the semantic abstract domain.

Decidability and Synthesis of Abstract Inductive Invariants

Authors: Francesco Ranzato

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 171, 31st International Conference on Concurrency Theory (CONCUR 2020)


Abstract
Decidability and synthesis of inductive invariants ranging in a given domain play an important role in software verification. We consider here inductive invariants belonging to an abstract domain A as defined in abstract interpretation, namely, ensuring the existence of the best approximation in A of any system property. In this setting, we study the decidability of the existence of abstract inductive invariants in A of transition systems and their corresponding algorithmic synthesis. Our model relies on some general results which relate the existence of abstract inductive invariants with least fixed points of best correct approximations in A of the transfer functions of transition systems and their completeness properties. This approach allows us to derive decidability and synthesis results for abstract inductive invariants which are applied to the well-known Karr’s numerical abstract domain of affine equalities. Moreover, we show that a recent general algorithm for synthesizing inductive invariants in domains of logical formulae can be systematically derived from our results and generalized to a range of algorithms for computing abstract inductive invariants.
