Do the following. For each item include a proper documentation in your report:

  1. Create a data file in Prolog format using the set of examples for the target concept "PlayTennis", shown in Mitchell - Table 3.2 (page 59). Use the following template (for an example of this format see the data file example(ID, Class, List_of_attribute_value_pairs). ID must be a number. Test the file for eventual syntax errors by loading it in Zprolog. Include a printout in your report.
  2. Using the program and specifically the predicates generalize(E,H) and model(H,M), generate all hypotheses that cover more than one example from class "no" and no examples from class "yes". Do all this with a single query and include a copy of the query and the Zprolog output in your report. Hint: see item #9 (second query) in Lab Experiments 1.
  3. Using the program generate pairs of different examples from class "no" and then apply lgg(E1,E2,H) and model(H,M), to generate all hypotheses that cover examples from class "no" , but do not cover examples from class "yes".  Hint: see query #10 in Lab Experiments 1.
  4. Using the above results create (manually) the following two sets of rules (hypotheses):
Documentation and submission: Include the results of all the work you did according to the above specifications in a document (Word or HTML format) with a title page including your name and either send it as an e-mail attachment or hand it as a hard copy.
