Inductive programming is a machine learning paradigm combining functional programming (FP) with the information theoretic criterion, Minimum Message Length (MML). IP 1.2 now includes the Geometric and Poisson distributions over non-negative integers, and Student's t-Distribution over continuous values, as well as the Multinomial and Normal (Gaussian) distributions from before. All of these can be used with IP's model-transformation operators, and structure-learning algorithms including clustering (mixture-models), classification- (decision-) trees and other regressions, and mixed Bayesian networks, provided only that the types match between each corresponding component Model, transformation, structured model, and variable -- discrete, continuous, sequence, multivariate, and so on.
