A new view of learning is presented. The basis of this view is a natural notion of reduction. We prove completeness and relative difculty results. An in nite hierarchy of intrinsically more and more di cult to learn concepts is presented. Our results indicate that the complexity notion captured by our new notion of reduction di ers dramatically from the traditional studies of the complexity of the algorithms performing learning tasks. 2
