Charles River Analytics, a developer of intelligent system solutions, is sponsoring the 2013 Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence (UAI), which will be held at the Westin Bellevue Hotel in Bellevue, Washington, from July 11-15, 2013. UAI is the leading international conference on uncertainty management and reasoning. Charles River’s sponsorship of UAI helps enable researchers and students from around the world to come together to discuss innovative research in this key area.
Charles River is a multi-year sponsor of the conference, reflecting its ongoing commitment to the development of novel probabilistic modeling technologies, which Charles River supports through multiple projects. Under a DARPA-funded project called PRIDE, Charles River is developing a framework for probabilistic modeling in a wide range of complex situations.
“In PRIDE, we’re using Probabilistic Relational Models and the Figaro probabilistic programming language,” explained Dr. Avi Pfeffer, Principal Scientist at Charles River. “Probabilistic Relational Models are an object-oriented representation that makes entities and relationships explicit. Figaro supports a new kind of model-development process simplifying the challenging task of creating probabilistic models. Figaro combines the power of functional programming with the ease of use of object-oriented programming.”
