The problem of designing polynomial prediction algorithms for learning binary relations is studied for an online model in which the instances are drawn by the learner, by a helpful teacher, by an adversary, or according to a probability distribution on the instance space. The relation is represented as an n × m binary matrix, and results are presented when the matrix is restricted to have at most k distinct row types, and when it is constrained by requiring that the predicate form a total order.
