The purpose of this paper is to outline a new formulation of statistical learning that will be more useful and relevant to the field of robotics. The primary motivation for this new perspective is the mismatch between the form of data assumed by current statistical learning algorithms, and the form of data that is actually generated by robotic systems. Specifically, robotic systems generate a vast unlabeled data stream, while most current algorithms are designed to handle limited numbers of discrete, labeled, independent and identically distributed samples. We argue that there is only one meaningful unsupervised learning process that can be applied to a vast data stream: adaptive compression. The compression rate can be used to compare different techniques, and statistical models obtained through adaptive compression should also be useful for other tasks.
