This paper presents an innovative approach for learning the distinctive attributes of uncertain objects. The proposed system takes instances, clusters them into different concepts and consequently induces a hierarchy which is used for later classification. We introduce the major steps of the approach using a set of city attributes and further illustrate the applicability for a real world problem, namely the learning of structural concepts of business letters.
