*. http://www.learningtheory.org/index.php?view=article&id=9*- QUOTE: My current research interest is to develop advanced models of empirical inference. I think that the problem of machine learning is not just a technical problem. It is a general problem of philosophy of empirical inference. One of the ways for inference is induction. The main philosophy of inference developed in the past strongly connected the empirical inference to the inductive learning process. I believe that induction is a rather restrictive model of learning and I am trying to develop more advanced models. First, I am trying to develop non-inductive methods of inference, such as transductive inference, selective inference, and many other options. Second, I am trying to introduce non-classical ways of inference.
