Machine learning operates at the intersection of statistics and computer
science. This raises the question as to its underlying methodology. While much
emphasis has been put on the close link between the process of learning from
data and induction, the falsificationist component of machine learning has
received minor attention. In this paper, we argue that the idea of
falsification is central to the methodology of machine learning. It is commonly
thought that machine learning algorithms infer general prediction rules from …
