The important thing is to not stop questioning... One cannot help but be in awe when contemplating the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. - Albert Einstein, 1936 The Marvelous Structure of Reality Joseph M. Hellerstein Keynote at WebDB 2003, San Diego The Marvelous Structure of Reality Joseph M. Hellerstein Keynote at WebDB 2003, San Diego

12 Its about the disappearance forty years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden, and about her uncle, determined to know the truth about what he believes was her murder. Blomkvist visits Henrik Vanger at his estate on the tiny island of Hedeby. The old man draws Blomkvist in by promising solid evidence against Wennerström. Blomkvist agrees to spend a year writing the Vanger family history as a cover for the real assignment: the disappearance of Vanger's niece Harriet some 40 years earlier. Hedeby is home to several generations of Vangers, all part owners in Vanger Enterprises. Blomkvist becomes acquainted with the members of the extended Vanger family, most of whom resent his presence. He does, however, start a short lived affair with Cecilia, the niece of Henrik. After discovering that Salander has hacked into his computer, he persuades her to assist him with research. They eventually become lovers, but Blomkvist has trouble getting close to Lisbeth who treats virtually everyone she meets with hostility. Ultimately the two discover that Harriet's brother Martin, CEO of Vanger Industries, is secretly a serial killer. A 24-year-old computer hacker sporting an assortment of tattoos and body piercings supports herself by doing deep background investigations for Dragan Armansky, who, in turn, worries that Lisbeth Salander is the perfect victim for anyone who wished her ill."

19 Probabilistic databases combine first-order logic and probability theory in an elegant way: Declarative: Queries formulated in SQL/Relational Algebra/Datalog, support for updates, transactions, etc. Deductive: Well-studied resolution algorithms for SQL/Relational Algebra/Datalog (top-down/bottom- up), indexes, automatic query optimization Scalable (?): Polynomial data complexity (SQL), but #P-complete for the probabilistic inference Probabilistic Databases: A Panacea to All of the Afore Tasks? C2

20
20 Special Cases: Query Semantics: (Marginal Probabilities) Run query Q against each instance D i ; for each answer tuple t, sum up the probabilities of all instances D i where t exists. A probabilistic database D p (compactly) encodes a probability distribution over a finite set of deterministic database instances D i (1) Tuple-independent PDB(II) Block-independent PDB Note: (I) and (II) are not equivalent!

SAT #P = class of problems of the form how many witnesses ? #SAT NP = class of problems of the form is there a witness ? SAT #P = class of problems of the form how many witnesses ? #SAT The decision problem for 2CNF is in PTIME. The counting problem for 2CNF is already #P-complete.

Inference in Probabilistic Databases Safe query plans [Dalvi,Suciu: VLDB-J07] Can propagate confidences along with relational operators. Read-once functions [Sen,Deshpande,Getoor: PVLDB10] Can factorize Boolean formula (in polynomial time) into read-once form, where every variable occurs at most once. Knowledge compilation [Olteanu et al.: ICDT10, ICDT11] Can decompose Boolean formula into ordered binary decision diagram (OBDD), such that inference resolves to independent-and and independent-or operations over the decomposed formula. Top-k pruning [Ré,Davli,Suciu: ICDE07; Karp,Luby,Madras: J-Alg.89] Can return top-k answers based on lower and upper bounds, even without knowing their exact marginal probabilities. Multi-Simulation: run multiple Markov-Chain-Monte-Carlo (MCMC) simulations in parallel.

48
Bounds for First-Order Formulas Theorem 1: Given a (partially grounded) first-order lineage formula Φ : Φ (Q 2 ) = B y gradFrom(S,y) Lower bound P low (for all query answers that can be obtained from grounding Φ) Substitute y gradFrom(S,y) with false (or true if negated). P low (Q 2 ) = P(B false) = P(B) = 0.6 Upper bound P up (for all query answers that can be obtained from grounding Φ) Substitute y gradFrom(S,y) with true (or false if negated). P up (Q 2 ) = P(B true) = P(true) = 1.0 Proof: (sketch) Substitution of a subformula with false reduces the number of models (possible worlds) that satisfy Φ ; substitution with true increases them. [Dylla,Miliaraki,Theobald: ICDE13]

49
Theorem II: Let Φ 1,…, Φ n be a series of first-order lineage formulas obtained from grounding Φ via SLD resolution, and let φ be the propositional lineage formula of an answer obtained from this grounding procedure. Then rewriting each Φ i according to Theorem 1 into P i,low and P i,up creates a monotonic series of lower and upper bounds that converges to P( φ ). 0 = P(false) P(B false) = 0.6 P(B (C D)) = P(B true) = P(true) = 1 Proof: (sketch, via induction) Substitution of true with a formula reduces the number of models that satisfy Φ ; substitution of false with a formula increases this number.

Basic Types of Inference MAP Inference Find the most likely assignment to query variables y under a given evidence x. Compute: arg max y P( y | x) (NP-complete for MaxSAT) Marginal/Success Probabilities Probability that query y is true in a random world under a given evidence x. Compute: y P( y | x ) (#P-complete already for conjunctive queries)

Probabilistic & Temporal Database Sequenced Semantics & Snapshot Reducibility: Built-in semantics: reduce temporal-relational operators to their non- temporal counterparts at each snapshot of the database. Coalesce/split tuples with consecutive time intervals based on their lineages. Non-Sequenced Semantics Queries can freely manipulate timestamps just like regular attributes. Single temporal operator T supports all of Allens 13 temporal relations. Deduplicate tuples with overlapping time intervals based on their lineages. A temporal-probabilistic database D Tp (compactly) encodes a probability distribution over a finite set of deterministic database instances D i and a finite time domain T.

Statistical Relational Learning & Probabilistic Programming SRL combines first-order logic and probabilistic inference Employs relational data as input, but with a focus also on learning the relations (facts, rules & weights) Knowledge compilation for probabilistic inference Including recent techniques for lifted inference Markov Logic Networks (U-Washington) Grounding of weighted first-order rules over a function-free Herbrand base into an undirected graphical model ( Markov Random Field) Probabilistic Programming (ProbLog, KU-Leuven) Deductive grounding over a set of base facts into a directed graphical model (SLD proofs Bayesian Net)

Summary & Challenges (II) RDF is Not Enough! HMMs, CRFs, PCFGs (not in this talk) yield much richer output structures than just triplets. Extraction of facts beliefs, modifiers, modalities, etc.. intensional knowledge (rules) More expressive but canonical representation of natural language: trees, graphs, objects, frames (F-logic, KL-one, CycL, OWL, etc.) All combined with structured probabilistic inference Extraction of facts beliefs, modifiers, modalities, etc.. intensional knowledge (rules) More expressive but canonical representation of natural language: trees, graphs, objects, frames (F-logic, KL-one, CycL, OWL, etc.) All combined with structured probabilistic inference

Summary & Challenges (III) Scalable Probabilistic Inference Domain-liftable FO formula X,Y People smokes(X) friends(X,Y) smokes(Y) Exact lifted inference via Weighted-First-Order-Model-Counting (WFOMC) Probability of a query depends only on the size(s) of the domain(s), a weight function for the first-order predicates, and the weighted model count over the FO d-DNNF. [Van den Broeck11]: Compilation rules and inference algorithms for FO d-DNNFs [Jha & Suciu11]: Classes of SQL queries which admit polynomial-size (propositional) d-DNNFs Approximate inference via Belief Propagation, MCMC-style sampling, etc. Scale-out via distributed grounding & inference: TrinityRDF (MSR), GraphLab2 (MIT) Corresponding FO d-DNNF circuit
