About these proceedings
This volume contains the text of the five invited papers and
16 selected contributions presented at the third
International Workshop on Analogical and Inductive
Inference, AII `92, held in Dagstuhl Castle, Germany,
October 5-9, 1992.
Like the two previous events, AII '92 was intended to bring
together representatives from several research communities,
in particular, from theoretical computer science, artificial
intelligence, and from cognitive sciences.
The papers contained in this volume constitute a
state-of-the-art report on formal approaches to algorithmic
learning, particularly emphasizing aspects of analogical
reasoning and inductive inference. Both these areas are
currently attracting strong interest: analogical reasoning
plays a crucial role in the booming field of case-based
reasoning, and, in the fieldof inductive logic programming,
there have recently been developed a number of new
techniques for inductive inference.
