First Learning Theory Discussion

Chipotle on Monroe

The Winter 2023 AIGSA reading group is about Foundations of Learning Theory. Join us for the first meeting! Lunch will be provided.

This week’s topic is The Riddle of Induction. Hume asks why we trust inference based on our past experiences. His argument later becomes formalized by Wolpert as part of the “No Free Lunch” theorems.

To prepare, please spend up to 1 hour reading at least Section 1 “Hume’s Problem” of the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy entry on “The Problem of Induction”.
