An OpenCL implementation of a forward sampling algorithm for CP-logic. (English) Zbl 1344.68045
Summary: We present an approximate query answering algorithm for the Probabilistic Logic Programming language CP-logic. It complements existing sampling algorithms by using the rules from body to head instead of in the other direction. We present an implementation in OpenCL, which is able to exploit the multicore architecture of modern GPUs to compute a large number of samples in parallel, and demonstrate that this is competitive with existing inference algorithms.
