Next, click on the white area below ``Enter next example.'' Then input your first labelled example b, c(b). For example, you may input 000111, 1. Note that comma is essential. Then click Enter, and wait for the response to be shown in the big area. After the respone has been displayed, you may enter the next vector and the next label.
Adding both the vector and the label at the same time is just for your convenience. The applet shows you what the algorithm P has predicted on the current input vector b. If the prediction has been correct, no new hypothesis is computed and thus not displayed. If a prediction error occured, the applet is honestly telling you that, and it displays its new hypothesis. Note that negated variables are displayed by a minus sign, e.g., not x1 is written as -x1.
If you would like to run a new series, please hit the button ``RELOAD THIS APPLET.'' Enjoy!
Hopefully, now you have understood how the Wholist algorithm works by trying it on some small examples. Did you find out how many examples it takes in the best-case and worst-case?
Then you may wonder how many examples are needed on average.
This finishes our introduction. We continue by explaining further learning models. The next model is Learning in the Limit.
