Abstract
One of the most admirable characteristic of the hu- man cognitive system is its ability to extract gener- alized rules covering regularities from example expe- rience presented by or experienced from the environ- ment. Humans' problem solving, reasoning and verbal behavior often shows a high degree of systematicity and productivity which can best be characterized by a competence level reflected by a set of recursive rules. While we assume that such rules are different for dif- ferent domains, we believe that there exists a general mechanism to extract such rules from only positive ex- amples from the environment. Our system Igor2 is an analytical approach to inductive programming which induces recursive rules by generalizing over regularities in a small set of positive input/output examples. We applied Igor2 to typical examples from cognitive do- mains and can show that the Igor2 mechanism is able to learn the rules which can best describe systematic and productive behavior in such domains.
