New Advances in Logic-Based Probabilistic Modeling by PRISM
We review a logic-based modeling language PRISM and report recent developments including belief propagation by the generalized inside-outside algorithm and generative modeling with constraints. The former implies PRISM subsumes belief propagation at the algorithmic level. We also compare the performance of PRISM with state-of-the-art systems in statistical natural language processing and probabilistic inference in Bayesian networks respectively, and show that PRISM is reasonably competitive.
