The Independent Choice Logic began in the early 90's as a way to combine logic programming and probability into a coherent framework. The idea of the Independent Choice Logic is straightforward: there is a set of independent choices with a probability distribution over each choice, and a logic program that gives the consequences of the choices. There is a measure over possible worlds that is defined by the probabilities of the independent choices, and what is true in each possible world is given by choices made in that world and the logic program. ICL is interesting because it is a simple, natural and expressive representation of rich probabilistic models. This paper gives an overview of the work done over the last decade and half, and points towards the considerable work ahead, particularly in the areas of lifted inference and the problems of existence and identity. © 2008 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
