1 Probabilistic Datalog Probabilistic Datalog is an extension of ordinary (two-valued) Datalog (2D). g. 7 indterm(dl,ir). 8 indterm(dl,db). about(D,T) 4-- indterm(D,T). about(D,T) <-- link(D,Dl) , about(Di,T). ql(X) +- about(X, ir) , about(X,db). 5 link(d2,dl). Informally speaking, the probabilistic weight gives the probability that the following predicate is true. 8 about databases (DB). The rule for ql searches for documents dealing with both of these topics. 56 for ql (dl). g. for document d 2 : 0 .

Thus, we have three different types of clauses: 1. Ground facts consist of the head literal only, and all arguments must be constants. Note that 4D supports both positive and negative facts. 2. Rules consist of a head and a body. e. all variables occurring in the head also must occur in the body of the rule. 3. A goal clause consisting of a body only represents a query to the Datalog program to be answered. Declarations allow for specifying closed-world assumptions for predicates. Let q denote a predicate, then q is closed via the declaration #close (q).
