Traditionally, rule learners have learned deterministic rules from deterministic data, that is, the rules have been expressed as logical statements and also the examples and their classification have been purely logical. We upgrade rule learning to a probabilistic setting, in which both the examples themselves as well as their classification can be probabilistic. The setting is incorporated in the probabilistic rule learner Prob-FOIL, which combines the principles of the relational rule learner FOIL with the probababilistic Prolog, ProbLog. We report on experiments that demonstrate the utility of the approach
