By Nicolò Cesa-Bianchi, Masayuki Numao, Rüdiger Reischuk (eds.)

This quantity comprises the papers provided on the thirteenth Annual convention on Algorithmic studying thought (ALT 2002), which used to be held in Lub ¨ eck (Germany) in the course of November 24–26, 2002. the most target of the convention used to be to p- vide an interdisciplinary discussion board discussing the theoretical foundations of computer studying in addition to their relevance to functional functions. The convention used to be colocated with the 5th foreign convention on Discovery technology (DS 2002). the amount contains 26 technical contributions which have been chosen through this system committee from forty nine submissions. It additionally comprises the ALT 2002 invited talks awarded through Susumu Hayashi (Kobe collage, Japan) on “Mathematics according to Learning”, by way of John Shawe-Taylor (Royal Holloway college of L- don, united kingdom) on “On the Eigenspectrum of the Gram Matrix and Its dating to the Operator Eigenspectrum”, and by way of Ian H. Witten (University of Waikato, New Zealand) on “Learning constitution from Sequences, with functions in a electronic Library” (joint invited speak with DS 2002). in addition, this quantity - cludes abstracts of the invited talks for DS 2002 offered through Gerhard Widmer (Austrian learn Institute for Arti?cial Intelligence, Vienna) on “In seek of the Horowitz issue: meantime file on a Musical Discovery undertaking” and by means of Rudolf Kruse (University of Magdeburg, Germany) on “Data Mining with Graphical Models”. the whole models of those papers are released within the DS 2002 lawsuits (Lecture Notes in Arti?cial Intelligence, Vol. 2534). ALT has been awarding the E.

M, where {xi : i = 1, . . , m} is a given dataset and k(·, ·) is a kernel function. For Mercer ˆ1 ≥ kernels K is symmetric positive semi-definite. We denote its eigenvalues λ ˆ2 . . ≥ λ ˆ m ≥ 0 and write its eigendecomposition as K = V ΛV ˆ where Λˆ is a λ diagonal matrix of the eigenvalues and V denotes the transpose of matrix V . The eigenvalues are also referred to as the spectrum of the Gram matrix. A number of learning algorithms rely on estimating spectral data on a sample of training points and using this data as input to further analyses.

As a simple example consider now the first eigenvalue, which by Theorem 3 and the above observations is given by λ1 (M ) = maxm 0=v∈R v Nv v XX v vX = maxm = maxm 0=v∈R 0=v∈R vv vv vv m = maxm 0=v∈R Pv (xj ) 2 m = j=1 xj j=1 2 m − min m 0=v∈R 2 Pv⊥ (xj ) 2 j=1 where Pv (x) (Pv⊥ (x)) is the projection of x onto the space spanned by v (space perpendicular to v), since x 2 = Pv (x) 2 + Pv⊥ (x) 2 . It follows that the first eigenvector is characterised as the direction for which sum of the squares of the residuals is minimal.

When Karl Marx wrote Das Kapital , he worked in the reading room of the British Museum library. Not only will tomorrow’s writers use their laptop instead of Marx’s pen and paper, and sit in the garden, they will work “inside” their digital libraries in a stronger and more visceral sense. H. Witten Fig. 1. (a) Browsing for information about locusts, (b) Expanding on desert locust notion of a “collection” implies a boundary. Paradoxically, perhaps, in the future we will work inside the digital library with a new sense of “in”-ness that we can barely glimpse today.
