In recent years, the application of formal methods has become increasingly important in philosophy. In my talk I will present a recent instance of that development: a new theory of rational belief which involves methods from logic, probability theory, and the theory of artificial neural networks. The theory might lay the foundations for future methods by which probabilistic data and the dynamics of neural networks can be interpreted rationally with the help of qualitative terms and logical rules.
