Many top-down Inductive Logic Programming systems use a greedy, covering approach to construct hypotheses. This paper presents an alternative, cautious approach, known as cautious induction. We conjecture that cautious induction can allow better hypotheses to be found, with respect to some hypothesis quality criteria. This conjecture is supported by the… (More)
