We argue that explanation-based generalisation as recently proposed in the machine learning literature is essentially equivalent to partial evaluation, a well known technique in the functional and logic programming literature. We show this equivalence by analysing the definitions and underlying algorithms of both techniques, and by giving a Prolog program which can be interpreted as doing either explanation-based generalisation or partial evaluation.
