Layered Concept-Learning and Dynamically Variable Bias Management

  title={Layered Concept-Learning and Dynamically Variable Bias Management},
  author={Larry A. Rendell and Raj Sheshu and David K. Tcheng},
Concept learning is inherently complex. Without severe constraint or inductive "bias," the general problem is intractable. While most learning systems have been designed with built-in biases, these systems typically work well only in narrowly circumscribed problem domains. Here we present a model of concept formation that views learning as a simultaneous optimization problem at three different levels, with dynamically chosen biases guiding the search for satisfactory hypotheses. In this model… CONTINUE READING
