Paper Abstract

A technique for representing data obtained from sensors, video streams imagery, sound, text, etc. is presented. The technique is called Finite Inductive Sequences (FI) and is proposed as a means for eliminating data requiring storage where conventional mathematical models don’t eliminate enough and statistical models eliminate too much. FI is a simple idea and is based upon a symbol push-out technique that allows the order (inductive base) of the model to be set to an a’priori value for all derived rules. The rules are obtained from an exemplar data set, and are derived by a technique called factoring, and this results in a table of rules called a ruling. These rules can then be used in pattern recognition applications. These techniques are shown to be example as well as a more formal setting, and lastly these rules and ruling are likened to the structure both present and absent in the cerebellum.
