Inductive rule learning on the knowledge level
We present an application of the analytical inductive programming system Igor to learning sets of recursive rules from positive experience. We propose that this approach can be used within cognitive architectures to model regularity detection and generalization learning. Induced recursive rule sets represent the knowledge which can produce systematic and productive behavior in complex situations – that is, control knowledge for chaining actions in different, but structural similar situations. We argue, that an analytical approach which is governed by regularity detection in example experience is more plausible than generate-and-test approaches. After introducing analytical inductive programming with Igor we will give a variety of example applications from different problem solving domains. Furthermore, we demonstrate that the same generalization mechanism can be applied to rule acquisition for reasoning and natural language processing.
