This book presents a summary of recent work on the interface between artificial intelligence and statistics. It does this through a series of papers by different authors working in different areas of this interface. These papers are a selected and referenced subset of papers presented at the 3rd Interntional Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Statistics, Florida, January 1991.

Industry Reviews

"This is an interesting collection of specialised papers in a new field. Good AI libraries and all research groups will need a copy." -Computing "The book provides a broad update of current work tat should aid researchers on both sides of the AI/Statistics interface, and is a useful successor to earlier volumes in the series from W A Gale." -Short Book Reviews ..."the book is a substantial and worthwhile contribution to the literature for both AI and Statistics. It collects a lot of major results from the frontiers of both sciences and presents them in a very readable context...I enjoyed reading this book very much." -Engineering Applications in Artificial Intelligence
