I will summarize our work on a declarative programing language that offers native language support for expressing predictive (e.g. machine learning) and prescriptive (e.g. combinatorial optimization) analytics. The presentation gives an overview of the platform and the language. In particular, it focuses on the important role of integrity constraints, which are used not only for maintaining data integrity, but also, for example, for the specification of complex optimization problems and probabilistic programming.
