The demarcation problem, originally proposed by I. Kant, is a central question of inductive theory: What is the difference between the cases with a justified inductive step, and those for which the inductive step is not justified? The demarcation problem is usually descusses in the terms of the philosophy of natural science. All theories in the natural sciences are the result of generalizations of observed real facts and therefore theories are built using inductive inference. In the history of the natural science, there have been both true theories that reflect reality (say chemistry) and false ones (say alchemy) that do not reflect reality.
In the following we show how by using the ML method one can estimate a desired function. 2 Pattern Recognition (Discriminant Analysis) Problem Using the ML technique, Fisher considered a problem of pattern recognition (he called it discriminant analysis). He proposed the following model: There exist two categories of data distributed according to two different statistical laws Pi (x, a*) and P2 (x, (3* ) (densities, belonging to parametric classes). Let the probability of occurrence of the first category of data be ql and the probability of the second category be 1 - ql.
Iii) A learning machine (LM) capable of implementing a set of functions I(x, a), a E A, where A is a set of parameters. 2 The problem of learning is that of choosing from the given set of functions I(x, a), a E A, the one which best approximates the supervisor's response. IThis is the general case which includes the case where the supervisor uses a function y = I(x). 2Note that the elements Q E A are not necessarily vectors. They can be any abstract parameters. Therefore, we in fact consider any set of functions.
