>  A  NEW LEARNING PARADIGM: LEARNING WITH TEACHER
>                       Vladimir Vapnik
>
> Abstract.
>
> The existing machine learning paradigm considers a simple scheme:
> given a set of training examples find in a given collection of
> functions the one that in the best possible way approximates the
> unknown decision rule. In such a paradigm a teacher does not play any
> role.
>
> In human learning, however, the role of a teacher is very important:
> along with examples a teacher provides students with explanations,
> comments, comparisons, and so on. In this talk I will introduce
> elements of human teaching in machine learning.  I will introduce an
> advanced learning paradigm called learning using privileged
> information (LUPI), where at the training stage a teacher gives some
> additional information about training examples. This privileged
> information will not be available during test stage.
>
> I will consider LUPI paradigm for support vector machine type of
> algorithms and demonstrate big superiority of the advanced learning
> paradigm over classical one.
>
> The new learning paradigm is general; it can be apply to almost any
> learning problem.
