Probabilistic Program Induction = program synthesis + learning?

In this talk I will first give a brief overview of a recent line of work on program synthesis based on
typed lambda-calculi. I will then outline some research questions pertaining to the integration of program synthesis and learning and will also include some examples from some recent, thought-provoking contributions in machine learning.
