Abstract A method for inducing knowledge by abstraction from a sequence of training examples is described. The proposed method, interference matching, induces abstractions by finding relational properties common to two or more exemplars. Three tasks solved by a program that uses an interference-matching algorithm are presented. Several problems concerning the description of the training examples and the adequacy of interference matching are discussed, and directions for future research are considered.
