Learning by artificial intelligence systems what I will typically call machine
learning has a distinguished history, and the field has experienced something of a renaissance
in the past twenty years. Machine learning consists principally of a diverse set of algorithms and
techniques that have been applied to problems in a wide range of domains. Any overview of the
methods and applications will inevitably be incomplete, at least at the level of specific
algorithms and techniques. There are many excellent introductions to the formal and statistical
details of machine learning algorithms and techniques available elsewhere (e.g., Bishop, 1995;
Duda, Hart, & Stork, 2000; Hastie, Tibshirani, & Friedman, 2001; Mitchell, 1997). The present
