What is the type-1/type-2 distinction?

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 20 (1):68-69 (1997)
Clark & Thornton's type-1/-2 distinction is not well-defined. The classes of type-1 and type-2 problems are too broad: many nocomputable functions are type-1 and type-2 learnable. They are also too narrow: trivial functions, such as identity, are neither type-1 nor type-2 learnable. Moreover, the scope of type-1 and type-2 problems appears to be equivalent. Overall, this distinction does not appear useful for machine learning or cognitive science.
