Prof. Sriraam Natarajan is invited speaker @ ACAI 2018Catch Prof. Sriraam Natarajan teach Human Allied Statistical Relational AI at ACAI 2018 Summer School on Statistical Relational Artificial Intelligence on August 27-31, 2018 at Ferrara, Italy.
Statistical Relational AI (StaRAI) Models combine the powerful formalisms of probability theory and first-order logic to handle uncertainty in large, complex problems. While they provide a very effective representation paradigm due to their succinctness and parameter sharing, efficient learning is a significant problem in these models. First, I will discuss state-of-the-art learning methods based on boosting that is representation independent. Our results demonstrate that learning multiple weak models can lead to a dramatic improvement in accuracy and efficiency.
