Abstract

Learning of certain classes of two-dimensional picture languages is considered. Linear time algorithms that learn in the limit, from positive data the classes of local picture languages and locally testable picture languages are presented. A crucial step for obtaining the learning algorithm for local picture languages is an explicit construction of a two-dimensional on-line tessellation acceptor for a given local picture language. An efficient algorithm that learns the class of recognizable picture languages from positve data and restricted subset queries, is presented in contrast to the fact that this class is not learnable in the limit from positive data alone.
