This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 18th International Conference on Algorithmic Learning Theory, ALT 2007, held in Sendai, Japan, October 1-4, 2007, co-located with the 10th International Conference on Discovery Science, DS 2007.
The 25 revised full papers presented together with the abstracts of five invited papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 50 submissions. The papers are dedicated to the theoretical foundations of machine learning; they address topics such as query models, on-line learning, inductive inference, algorithmic forecasting, boosting, support vector machines, kernel methods, complexity and learning, reinforcement learning, unsupervised learning and grammatical inference.
