David Poole: Logic, Probability and Computation: Statistical Relational AI and Beyond

Over the last 25 years there has been considerable body of research into combinations of predicate logic and probability forming what has become known as statistical relational artificial intelligence (StaR-AI).

I discuss representations, semantics, inference and learning.
