CS Professor David Poole and Graduate Student David Buchman Receive UAI 2017 Best Student Paper Award

Computer Science graduate student David Buchman and Professor David Poole are the recipients of the UAI 2017 Best Student Paper Award, for their paper “Why Rules are Complex: Real-Valued Probabilistic Logic Programs are not Fully Expressive”.  

This paper proves some surprising results about what can and what cannot be represented by a popular method that combines logic and probability.  Such models are important as they let us go beyond features in machine learning to reason about objects and relationships with uncertainty.

Congratulations, David and David!
