Inductive Logic Programming is a new discipline which investigates the inductive construction of first-order clausal theories from examples and background knowledge. The authors survey the most important theories and methods of this new field.

This text focuses on theoretical aspects of Statistical Learning and Sequential Prediction. The minimax approach, which we emphasize throughout the course, offers a systematic way of comparing learning problems. We will discuss learning algorithms...

We focus on those algorithms of reinforcement learning that build on the theory of dynamic programming. We give a comprehensive catalog of learning problems, describe the core ideas, followed by the discussion of their properties and limitations.
