This paper introduces a new type of application for ILP called Bootstrapped Learning (BL). BL brings several challenges to ILP, including the need to (a) automate the 'ILP setup' problem, (b) exploit the fact that a well-meaning teacher is providing pedagogically chosen examples and may be offering hints, (c) deal with small numbers of training examples and sometimes no explicit negative examples; and (d) 'bootstrap', i.e., to automatically base learning in part on the results of earlier learning sessions.
