This paper investigates the safety properties of inductive logic programming (ILP), particularly as compared to deep learning systems.
We consider the following properties: ease of model specification; robustness to input change; control over inductive bias; verification of specifications; post-hoc model editing; transfer learning; and interpretability.
We find that ILP satisfies many of these properties in some domains.
Lastly, we propose a hybrid system using ILP as a preprocessor to generate specifications for other ML systems.
