Neural-Symbolic Systems concern the integration of the symbolic and connectionist paradigms of Artificial Intelligence. Distributed knowledge representation is traditionally seen under a symbolic perspective. In this paper, we show how neural networks can represent distributed symbolic knowledge, acting as multi-agent systems with learning capability (a key feature of neural networks). We apply the framework of Connectionist Modal Logics to well-known testbeds for distributed knowledge representation formalisms, namely the muddy children and the wise men puzzles. Finally, we sketch a full solution to these problems by extending our approach to deal with knowledge evolution over time.
