An appealing property of conformal predictors is their automatic validity under the exchangeability assumption: they make an error with probability not exceeding the prespecified significance level. A major focus of this chapter is on conditional versions of the notion of validity. Other extensions that we consider are a computationally efficient version of conformal prediction and probabilistic prediction. We also discuss classical tolerance regions, which can be regarded as a special case of conformal predictors and a generalization of inductive ...
