Julog.jl is a library and domain-specific language for Prolog-like logic programming in Julia. This lightning will introduce logic programming at a high level, how Julog can be used to solve first-order logic problems, how its functionality can be integrated with custom Julia functions, downstream use cases, and some next steps for making logic and constraint programming fast and accessible for Julia users.
Xuan (Sh-YEN, IPA: ɕɥɛn) is a PhD student at MIT in the Computational Cognitive Science and Probabilistic Computing research groups. Their current research focuses on inferring the hidden structure of human motivations by modeling agents as probabilistic programs, in the hope of aligning AI with the higher-order goals, values, and principles that humans strive (in part) to live by.
