  abstract =     "This thesis provides a breadth-first tour of
                 artificial intelligence techniques using ordinary data
                 compression programs like zip. Using mathematical
                 theory such as Kolmogorov Complexity and Shannon's
                 Coding Theory, we arrive at a unique and generic
                 perspective on universal learning with a plethora of
                 real examples. Included are results from literature,
                 astronomy, animal and virus evolution, linguistics,
                 semantics, and music. An open source software package,
                 CompLearn, is available for download so that interested
                 readers may continue the research themselves in their
                 own applications.",
