"Inductive bias"bias refers to your suspicion that if the sun has risen for the last billion days in a row, then it may rise tomorrow as well. Since it is logically possible that the laws of physics will arbitrarily cease to work and that the sun will *not*not rise tomorrow, coming to this conclusion requires an inductively biased prior.
