(Non-)Equivalence of Universal Priors

Wood, Ian; Sunehag, Peter; Hutter, Marcus


Ray Solomonoff invented the notion of universal induction featuring an aptly termed “universal” prior probability function over all possible computable environments [9]. The essential property of this prior was its ability to dominate all other such priors. Later, Levin introduced another construction — a mixture of all possible priors or “universal mixture”[12]. These priors are well known to be equivalent up to multiplicative constants. Here, we seek to clarify further the relationships...[Show more]
