A Logic of Information Systems
A logic can be formulated with information systems as elements. The calculus of this logic is similar to, but not identical with, Boolean algebra. The logic is inductive—conclusions have more information than premises. Inferences have a strong justification; they are valid for all proper scoring rules.
