CRACS Seminar by Manuel Carro (UPM)

18 June 2012

DCC-FCUP, 11-12am

Seminar: A General Implementation Framework for Tabled CLP

This paper describes a framework to combine tabling evaluation and constraint logic programming (TCLP). While this combination has been studied previously from a theoretical point of view and some implementations exist, they either suffer from a lack of efficiency, flexibility, or generality, or have inherent limitations with respect to the programs they can execute to completion (either with success or failure).

Recent Advances in Markov Network Structure Learning
A Markov network is an undirected graphical model for compactly representing a joint probability distribution over a set of random variables. However, learning their structure from data is extremely difficult.(...) In this talk, I will review some three classes of algorithms that address this task.
