Example domains include bioinformatics, chemoinform- ics, transportation systems, communication networks, social network analysis, linkanalysis, robotics, amongothers.Thestructuresencounteredcanbeass- pleassequencesandtrees(suchasthosearisinginproteinsecondarystructure predictionandnaturallanguageparsing)orascomplexascitationgraphs, the WorldWideWeb, andrelationaldatabases. This book providesan introduction to this ?eld with an emphasison those methods based on logic programming principles. The book is also the main resultofthesuccessfulEuropeanISTFETprojectno.FP6-508861onAppli- tionofProbabilisticInductiveLogicProgramming(APRILII,2004-2007).This projectwascoordinatedbytheAlbertLudwigsUniversityofFreiburg(Germany, Luc De Raedt) and the partners were Imperial College London (UK, Stephen MuggletonandMichaelSternberg), theHelsinkiInstituteofInformationTe- nology(Finland, HeikkiMannila), theUniversit adegliStudidiFlorence(Italy, PaoloFrasconi), andtheInstitutNationaldeRechercheenInformatiqueet- tomatiqueRocquencourt(France, FrancoisFages).Itwasconcernedwiththeory, implementationsandapplicationsofprobabilisticinductivelogicprogramming. Thisstructureisalsore?ectedinthebook. The book starts with an introductory chapter to "Probabilistic Inductive LogicProgramming"byDeRaedtandKersting.Inasecondpart, itprovidesa detailedoverviewofthemostimportantprobabilisticlogiclearningformalisms and systems. We are very pleased and proud that the scientists behind the key probabilistic inductive logic programming systems (also those developed outside the APRIL project) have kindly contributed a chapter providing an overviewoftheircontributions.Thisincludes: relationalsequencelearningte- niques (Kersting et al.), using kernels with logical representations (Frasconi andPasserini), MarkovLogic(Domingosetal.), the PRISMsystem (Satoand Kameya), CLP(BN)(SantosCostaetal.), BayesianLogicPrograms(Kersting andDeRaedt), andtheIndependentChoiceLogic(Poole).Thethirdpartthen provides a detailed account of some show-caseapplications of probabilistic - ductive logic programming, more speci?cally: in protein fold discovery (Chen et al.), haplotyping (Landwehr and Mielik] ainen) and systems biology (Fages andSoliman).
