    A connectionist model is presented for commonsense knowledge representation and reasoning. The representation and reasoning ability of the model is described through examples. The commonsense knowledge base is employed to develop a human face detection system. The system consists of three stages: preprocessing, face-components extraction, and final decision-making. A neural network-based algorithm is utilized to extract face components. Five networks are trained to detect mouth, nose, eyes, and full face. The detected face components and their corresponding possibility degrees allow the knowledge base to locate faces in the image and generate a membership degree for the detected faces within the face class. The experimental results obtained using this method are presented.
