Combining data from many different sources or from sources that are not entirely trusted brings challenges to the automated processing of such data. Knowledge presented in natural language is another challenge for computing. In the semantic web, many applications such as personal agents need to be able to manage multiple kinds of uncertainty. There are two main approaches to modeling uncertainty in the literature - fuzzy and probabilistic. These approaches model semantically different types of uncertainty. This paper focuses on approaches that combine both fuzzy and probabilistic reasoning in one framework to provide automated agents the capability to deal with both types of uncertainty.
