Dr. Vaishak Belle

Dr Vaishak Belle is a Chancellor’s Fellow/Lecturer in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh. His research interests are motivated by the need to augment learning and perception with high-level structured, commonsensical knowledge, to enable AI systems to learn faster and more accurate models of the world. He is interested in computational frameworks that are able to explain their decisions, modular, re-usable, and robust to variations in problem description.


Explainable AI, scalable probabilistic inference and learning, probabilistic programming, statistical relational learning, commonsense reasoning, automated planning, and unifying logic and probability more generally.
