Workshop on Logic and Learning
Affiliated with LICS 2001
June 19-20, 2001, Boston, Massachusetts
Logic has been used as the underlying representation language in many
areas of AI including machine learning.
Learnability of logical expressions has been studied in many paradigms
including PAC learning, query based learning, inductive inference, and
inductive logic programming. There are theoretical results on
learning in propositional logic as well as for logic programs,
description logic, and fragments of first-order logic. The techniques
applied are probabilistic and combinatorial, recursion theoretic,
proof theoretic, and model theoretic.
The workshop aims to focus on such logic-based results and techniques
for learning, fostering further understanding of the use of logic in
learning. The workshop has a two-fold objective: to provide an
introduction to the area for those who work in other LICS areas and
are interested in applying logic to learning, and to provide a forum
for research in the area of logic learning.
