Circuit expressions were introduced to provide a natural link between Computational Learning and certain aspects of Structural Complexity. Upper and lower bounds on the learnability of circuit expressions are known. We study here the case in which the circuit expressions are of low (time-bounded) Kolmogorov complexity. We show that these are polynomial-time learnable from membership queries in the presence of an NP oracle. We also exactly characterize the sets that have such circuit
