This talk shall introduce the field of statistical relational
learning, which is concerned with the use of expressive relational representations,
reasoning about uncertainty and learning. Techniques in
this domain are well suited for addressing some of the challenges of the
I shall illustrate several of the issues using the probabilistic Prolog system
called ProbLog that was developed over the past few years in Leuven.
I shall use ProbLog to illustrate issues concerning the representation of
semantic knowledge, the challenge of inference and methods for the learning
of parameters and rules. Furthermore, some applications in biological
network mining and analysis will be presented.
