The Inverse Levin Search

The Inverse Levin Search is a general algorithm to invert every function .

Using this algorithm is possible to “solve” the first step of The Solution ( also explained in Implementing the Solution ) .

The main idea is to run all the programs in increasing length and decreasing execution steps until you find the correct program , the drawback is the exponential resource requirement .

The first optimization is due to Levin with a complexity of  (2^(K(T)+1) ) *t(n) and then with Juergen Schmidhuber in “The Speed Prior” paper.

Despite the improvements nowadays the constant is again exponential and the time consumption by this algorithm is a big problem.
