Definition - What does Syllogism mean?
Techopedia explains Syllogism
In some fundamental ways, a syllogistic logic can be applied to computer programs. In this case, a computer program could use a syllogistic logic structure to determine outcomes. For example, if all A's are B's and all B's are C's, therefore all A's are C's. However, some types of syllogisms in human logic try to make deductive guesses about outcomes. These would generally be replaced by outcomes used in computer science, which are largely predetermined and strictly logical. In other cases, a syllogism could be contrasted with or related to a series of "if/then" statements used in programming to affect outcomes based on logical cases.
