abstract={This paper introduces Higher-Order Bayesian Networks, a probabilistic reasoning formalism which combines the efficient reasoning mechanisms of
Bayesian Networks with the expressive power of higher-order logics. We discuss
how the proposed graphical model is used in order to define a probability distribution semantics over particular families of higher-order terms. We give an example
of the application of our method on the Mutagenesis domain, a popular dataset
from the Inductive Logic Programming community, showing how we employ
probabilistic inference and model learning for the construction of a probabilistic
classifier based on Higher-Order Bayesian Networks. },
