- QUOTE: In the (mathematical) theory of learning, the term approximative learning is used in different meanings. To ease understanding the concepts, briefly recall what inductive learning means: upon receiving (positive or negative) evidence, the learner (often also called inference machine) formulates hypotheses that should, over time, (always) yield a correct one. This notion goes at least back to Gold, 1967. This concept leads to several natural questions:
- What is a “correct hypothesis?” This can be answered on a purely syntactic level (leading, e.g., to the notion of EX[planatory]-learning) or on a more semantic level (behaviorally …
