In this talk I will discuss the main principles of inference from data developed in statistical learning theory which consider in non-parametric framework the problem of inference from a given (fixed) sample size.

Along with a survey of new ideas of statistical learning theory and their comparison to classical statistical approaches, I will discuss the problem of constructing learning machines that implement these new ideas.
