Entropy bounds on Bayesian learning

Abstract : An observer of a process View the MathML source believes the process is governed by Q whereas the true law is P. We bound the expected average distance between P(xt|x1,...,xt−1) and Q(xt|x1,...,xt−1) for t=1,...,n by a function of the relative entropy between the marginals of P and Q on the n first realizations. We apply this bound to the cost of learning in sequential decision problems and to the merging of Q to P.
