This paper discusses explanatory schema acquisition, a learning technique with several interesting properties. It does not require a teacher or concept matching predicate to be provided. It does not rely on searching a concept space to produce generalizations. It can acquire a new concept based on only one input example, although later inputs might result in refinement of learned concepts. These features are made possible by taking a very knowledge-based approach. The concepts that are learned are problem-solving schemata. Thus, the technique is not applicable to all types of learning. However, it provides a unique perspective on a large and interesting class of learning. Author
