25 April 2018 - 25 April 2018
IDSIA, Room G1-204 - Galleria 1 - 12:00-13:00
In an attempt to explain what Logic (and a logic) is, in this talk, thorough a brief glimpse into the history of the concerned discipline (spanning from Chrysippus of Soli and Aristotle to Gödel and Turing, and beyond), I will provide an overview of some of its fundamental concepts and results underpinning the connections with researches at the Institute. In guise of conclusion, I will present ongoing works related to statistical relational languages and imprecise probabilities.
