4.1 Online Alchemy

For many applications, the end user is not interested in performing learning and/or inference once in batch mode, but rather requires this for many time steps in an online mode. The class OnlineEngine in the directory online addresses this issue by performing online inference and (coming soon) learning. The class is designed to be used by an agent which initializes the engine with evidence and an MLN. In subsequent time steps, the agent adds, changes and deletes evidence and query atoms.
