Algorithmic learning theory is a mathematically precise, general framework for studying the existence of computational strategies for converging to the truth in empirical questions. As such, algorithmic learning theory has immediate implications for the philosophy of science and induction and for empirical methodology in general. Indeed, the subject was independently co-invented by E. Mark Gold [16], a mathematician/computer scientist and by Hilary Putnam [44], a philosopher/logician. But it is… Expand
