2010 Spring Colloquium: V.S. Subrahmanian

Professor V.S. Subrahmanian will be giving a talk, "Selected Research in Probabilistic Logics".

  • Date: April 5, 2010
  • Time: 4:00 pm
  • Location: CSIC Building, Room 1115

Probabilistic logics (due originally to Boole) are used to reason about situations where dependencies between events are either non-existent or not understood. In this talk, I will describe the basic ideas underlying probabilistic logics and describe some recent results on solving the "most probable world" problem as well as results on intelligibly representing the uncertainty in answers to queries to probabilistic logic programs.

In addition, I will also briefly describe some ongoing work related to social networks and geospatial reasoning.
