Abstract [en]

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are fields of research that have become very popular and are getting more attention in the media as our computational power increases and the theories and latest developments of these fields can be put into practice in the real world. The field of machine learning consists of different paradigms, two of which are the symbolic and connectionist paradigms. In 1991 it was pointed out by Minsky that we could benefit from sharing ideas between the paradigms instead of competing for dominance in the field. That is why this thesis is investigating two approaches to inductive logic programming, where the main research goals are to, first: find similarities or differences between the approaches and potential areas where cross-pollination could be beneficial, and secondly: investigate their relative performance to each other based on the results published in the research. The approaches investigated are Meta-Interpretive Learning and Inductive Metalogic Programming, which belong to the symbolic paradigm of machine learning. The research is conducted through a comparative study based on published research papers. The conclusion to the study suggests that at least two aspects of the approaches could potentially be shared between them, namely the reversible aspect of the meta-interpreter and restricting the hypothesis space using the Herbrand base. However, the findings regarding performance were deemed incompatible, in terms of a fair one to one comparison. The results of the study are mainly specific, but could be interpreted as motivation for similar collaboration efforts between different paradigms.
