  title={nFOIL: Integrating Na{\"i}ve Bayes and FOIL},
  author={Niels Landwehr and Kristian Kersting and Luc De Raedt},
We present the system nFOIL. It tightly integrates the na ı̈ve Bayes learning scheme with the inductive logic programming rule-learner FOIL. In contrast to previous combinations, which have employed na ı̈ve Bayes only for post-processing the rule sets, nFOIL employs the na ı̈ve Bayes criterion to directly guide its search. Experimental evidence shows that nFOIL performs better than both its base line algorithm FOIL or the post-processing approach, and is at the same time competitive with more… CONTINUE READING
