Probabilistic Logic Programming is a promising formalism for dealing with uncertainty. Learning probabilistic logic programs has been receiving an increasing attention in Inductive Logic Programming: for instancethe system SLIPCOVER learns high quality theories in a variety of domains. HoweverSLIPCOVER is computationally expensivewith a running time of the order of hours. In order to apply SLIPCOVER to Big Data, we present SEMPRE, for “Structure lEarning by MaPREduce”, that scales SLIPCOVER by following a MapReduce strategy, directly implemented with the Message Passing Interface.
