Occam’s Razor

  • …or why prefer short hypotheses?

  • William Occam was one of the first to discuss this question around year 1320.

  • Several arguments have been discussed since then.

  • Arguments:
    • Based on combinatorial arguments there are fewer short hypothesis that coincidentally fit the training data.
    • Very complex hypotheses fail to generalize correctly to subsequent data.
