Abstract:

It has been suggested that if a discriminating procedure is to adapt to an environment, it must not be limited by erroneous assumptions concerning the unknown distributions or functional form for the discriminator. This technical note displays mathematically the analogy between the notion of learning and the concept of consistency originally defined for parameter estimation. Moreover, some information concerning limiting behavior is deduced. Author
