Item description for Logical and Relational Learning (Cognitive Technologies) by Luc De Raedt...
This textbook covers logical and relational learning in depth, and hence provides an introduction to inductive logic programming (ILP), multirelational data mining (MRDM) and (statistical) relational learning (SRL). These subfields of data mining and machine learning are concerned with the analysis of complex and structured data sets that arise in numerous applications, such as bio- and chemoinformatics, network analysis, Web mining, and natural language processing, within the rich representations offered by relational databases and computational logic.
The author introduces the machine learning and representational foundations of the field and explains some important techniques in detail by using some of the classic case studies centered around well-known logical and relational systems.
The book is suitable for use in graduate courses and should be of interest to graduate students and researchers in computer science, databases and artificial intelligence, as well as practitioners of data mining and machine learning. It contains numerous figures and exercises, and slides are available for many chapters.

Luc De Raedt is currently a full professor (C4) of computer science at the Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg and head of the Machine Learning lab. Before coming to Freiburg in 1999, he held positions as (parttime) senior lecturer, lecturer and assistant at the Department of Computer Science of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Belgium) and as post-doc of the Fund for Scientific Research, Flanders. He obtained his undergraduate degree as well as his Ph.D. in computer science from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Belgium) in 1986 and 1991. His Ph.D. thesis was subsequently published by Academic Press.
De Raedt has a rich experience in European Union research projects.He (co-)coordinated the successful ESPRIT III and IV Inductive Logic Programming (1 and 2) projects, coordinated the IST assessment project APrIL, and the Marie Curie Training Site DAISY (Foundations of Intelligent Systems). He is at present also involved in the European IST-FET project cInQ belonging to FP5.
De Raedt has (co)-organised several international workshops and conferences.
