Résumé : 

Logic and probability are ancient subjects whose unification holds significant potential for the field of artificial intelligence. A recent cover article in New Scientist went so far as to announce an "Intelligence Revolution" and a "New Dawn for AI". This talk will explain some of the underlying technical ideas and their application.
