Unifying Logic and Probability: A "New Dawn" for Artificial Intelligence?
Stuart Russell ( Computer Science Division, University of California, Berkeley and LIP6, Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris )
Logic and probability are ancient subjects whose unification holds significant potential for the field of artificial
intelligence. A recent cover article in New Scientist went so far as to announce an "Intelligence Revolution" and
a "New Dawn for AI". This talk will explain some of the underlying technical ideas and their application.
