Probability based on pre-entered database

  1. Aug 12, 2012 #1
    Greetings
    I have been working on database collection, and I'm trying to take it to the next level, as a calculator based on the pre-entered information
    The information would consist of many variable factor (around 8)

    This is only an example, and not related to the real statistical data
    Team A vs Team B, players X Y Z played >> Team A won
    Team A vs Team B, players X Y Z played >> Team B won
    Team A vs Team B, players X Y played and Z didn't play >> Team A won

    Then, based on the information entered earlier, you entered the variables
    if team A plays against team B with X Y Z playing >> there is a 50% chance to win
    if team A plays against team B with X Y playing >> there is a 100% chance for team A to win

    What is the best program to build such a thing, Any idea?
    Thank you in advance

    Hey ibkhayyat and welcome to the forums.

    There is actually a language for the deterministic case and it's called Prolog. I did a quick search and it appears someone has written a probabilistic prolog platform called "ProbLog":

    I haven't checked it out, but Prolog is a major platform used for things like theorem proving and also for these doing logical inferences. If the probabilistic extends this in the way that you would expect, I imagine this will be immensely useful to yourself.
