Logically reliable inductive inference

In Michele Friend, Norma B. Goethe & Valentina Harizanov (eds.), Induction, algorithmic learning theory, and philosophy. Springer. pp. 157-178 (2007)
This paper aims to be a friendly introduction to formal learning theory. I introduce key concepts at a slow pace, comparing and contrasting with other approaches to inductive inference such as con…rmation theory. A number of examples are discussed, some in detail, such as Goodman’s Riddle of Induction. I outline some important results of formal learning theory that are of philosophical interest. Finally, I discuss recent developments in this approach to inductive inference.
