### Abstract

. The state-of-the-art in inductive logic programming is surveyed by analyzing the approach taken by this field over the past 8 years. The analysis investigates the roles of 1) logic programming and machine learning, of 2) theory, techniques and applications, of 3) various technical problems addressed within inductive logic programming. 1 Introduction The term inductive logic programming was first coined by Stephen Muggleton in 1990 [1]. Inductive logic programming is concerned with the study of inductive machine learning within the representations offered by computational logic. Since 1991, annual international workshops have been organized [2-8]. This paper is an attempt to analyze the developments within this field. Particular attention is devoted to the relation between inductive logic programming and its neighboring fields such as machine learning, computational logic and data mining, and to the role that theory, techniques and implementations, and applications play. The analysis...
