Inference as a fundamental mechanism of thought is one of the gifted abilities of human beings. Inference can be described as a cognitive process that creates rational causations between a pair of cause and effect based on empirical arguments, formal reasoning, and/or statistical regulations [2, 15, 24, 26]. Conventional logic inferences may be classified as logical arguments, deductive, inductive, abductive, and analogical inferences [4, 9, 10, 11, 15].
