Predicate encryption is an encryption paradigm which gives a master secret key owner fine-grained control over access to encrypted data.

The master secret key owner can generate secret key tokens corresponding to predicates. An encryption of data $x$ can be evaluated using a secret token corresponding to a predicate $f$; the user learns whether the data satisfies the predicate, i.e., whether $f(x) = 1$.
