Hi Linda

There is plenty of interest in this field and it goes by several names:
Bayesian reasoning, uncertainty reasoning, statistical reasoning/inferencing
and what have you....
OWL/RDF(s) inferencing are a (deterministic) subset of uncertainty reasoning
and combing these two is also the thrust of my research at MIT.

If you are interested in some further reading along this topic, a superb
book is "On Intelligence" by Jeff Hawkins. Jeff was the co-founder of Palm
and has now founded a company called Numenta to work in this field. It is
meant for non-technical audience and is a fantastic read for anyone remotely
interested in this topic.

HTH,
Shashi
