Lower Bounds for Agnostic Learning via Approximate Rank
We prove that the concept class of disjunctions cannot be pointwise approximated by linear combinations of any small set of arbitrary real-valued functions. That is, suppose that t...

Unconditional lower bounds for learning intersections of halfspaces
We prove new lower bounds for learning intersections of halfspaces, one of the most important concept classes in computational learning theory. Our main result is that any statist...

On Online Learning of Decision Lists
A fundamental open problem in computational learning theory is whether there is an attribute efficient learning algorithm for the concept class of decision lists (Rivest, 1987; Bl...

On the Complexity of Teaching
While most theoretical work in machine learning has focused on the complexity of learning, recently there has been increasing interest in formally studying the complexity of teach...

Separating Distribution-Free and Mistake-Bound Learning Models over the Boolean Domain
Two of the most commonly used models in computational learning theory are the distribution-free model in which examples are chosen from a fixed but arbitrary distribution, and the ...

A Lower Bound for Agnostically Learning Disjunctions
We prove that the concept class of disjunctions cannot be pointwise approximated by linear combinations of any small set of arbitrary real-valued functions. That is, suppose there ...

What Can We Learn Privately?
Learning problems form an important category of computational tasks that generalizes many of the computations researchers apply to large real-life data sets. We ask: what concept ...
