On the foundations of universal sequence prediction
Solomonoff completed the Bayesian framework by providing a rigorous, unique, formal, and universal choice for the model class and the prior. We discuss in breadth how and in which sense universal (non-i.i.d.) sequence prediction solves various (philosophical) problems of traditional Bayesian sequence prediction. We show that Solomonoff’s model possesses many desirable properties: Fast convergence and strong bounds, and in contrast to most classical continuous prior densities has no zero...[Show more]
