Luc De Raedt is a full professor (of research) at the University of Leuven (KU Leuven) in the Department of Computer Science and a former chair of Machine Learning at the Albert-Ludwigs-University in Freiburg.
Luc De Raedt has been working in the areas of artificial intelligence and computer science, especially on computational logic, machine learning and data mining, probabilistic reasoning and constraint programming and their applications in bio- and chemoinformatics, vision and robotics, natural language processing, and engineering. His work has typically crossed boundaries between different research areas, often working towards an integration of their principles. He is well-known for his early work on inductive logic programming (combining logic with learning). Since 2000, he has been working towards a further integration of logical and relational learning with probabilistic reasoning (statistical relational learning and probabilistic programming) and on inductive querying in databases. During the last three years he has been fascinated by the possibility of combining constraint programming principles with data mining and machine learning. He is currently coordinating a European IST FET project in this area (ICON — Inductive Constraint Programming) and is the program chair of the 20th European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (Montpellier, 2012). He was a program co-chair of ICML 2005 and ECML/PKDD 2001.
