Have you ever come across the need of proving that your supervised learning algorithm indeed learned something from data? How could you define the minimal training sample size to ensure learning guarantees to your algorithm on some target problem? This will be a provocative talk on such a topic with the aim of bringing some initial thoughts/conclusions on it.


This event is co-organized with the Machine Learning Group at University of Waikato.
