The relations in Statistical Relational Learning are often expressed using first-order logic, leading to formalisms which combine both logical and probabilistic representations. In this talk I intend to explain the most important consequences of adopting a logical approach to SRL. Defining distributions over 'possible worlds' is a common theme to many such approaches. Two prominent logic-based formalisms - Markov logic networks and PRISM programs - will be used as exemplars. Although the talk is tutorial in nature, I hope to make it interesting to those already familiar with this area!
