On the existence and convergence of computable universal priors

Hutter, Marcus


Solomonoff unified Occam’s razor and Epicurus’ principle of multiple explanations to one elegant, formal, universal theory of inductive inference, which initiated the field of algorithmic information theory. His central result is that the posterior of his universal semimeasure M converges rapidly to the true sequence generating posterior μ, if the latter is computable. Hence, M is eligible as a universal predictor in case of unknown μ. We investigate the existence and convergence of computable...[Show more]
