I will report the latest ideas and results in our research exploring how children develop and revise intuitive theories. Two lines of research show, first, that young children can infer over hypotheses, abstract relations, and ‘framework theories’ from data, as well as inferring specific cause effect relationships, and second that varieties of sampling used in machine learning can provide a good account of how this is possible at the algorithmic level.
