We propose a framework for automated multi-attribute deci- sion making, employing the probabilistic non-monotonic description log- ics proposed by Lukasiewicz in 2008. Using this framework, we can model artificial agents in decision-making situation, wherein background knowl- edge, available alternatives and weighted attributes are represented via probabilistic ontologies. It turns out that extending traditional utility theory with such description logics, enables us to model decision-making problems where probabilistic ignorance and default reasoning plays an important role. We provide several decision functions using the notions of expected utility and probability intervals, and study their properties.
