We present the intentional kernel as a new class of kernel functions for structured data. The class is highly contrasted to the convolution kernel, that is a typical class of kernel functions. That is, the convolution kernel is defined with sub-structures, while the intentional kernel is based on derivations constracting structures. We show instances of the intentional kernel for boolean functions, first-order terms, context sensitive languages, and RNA sequences. We also show some properties
