Subject field(s)
  • Artificial Intelligence
CONT

Inductive inference that produces strong hypotheses is falsity preserving. This means that if the original premise statements are false, the derived hypothesis will be false also.

CONT

... the generalization rules are not truth-preserving but falsity preserving.

  • Intelligence artificielle
CONT

Contrairement [...] à la déduction, l'induction n'est pas nécessairement adéquate en général (on dit encore que l'induction préserve la fausseté). Nous utiliserons le symbole /< pour annoter les règles d'inférence qui ne sont pas nécessairement adéquates.
