#### Complexity theoretic limitations on learning DNF's

##### Amit Daniely, Shai Shalev-Shwatz

Using the recently developed framework of [Daniely et al, 2014], we show that under a natural assumption on the complexity of refuting random K-SAT formulas, learning DNF formulas is hard. Furthermore, the same assumption implies the hardness of learning intersections of $\omega(\log(n))$ halfspaces, agnostically learning conjunctions, as well as virtually all (distribution free) learning problems that were previously shown hard (under complexity assumptions).
