Machine Learning has become a key enabling technology for many engineering applications and theoretical problems alike. To further discussions and to dis- minate new results, a Summer School was held on February 11-22, 2002 at the Australian National University. The current book contains a collection of the main talks held during those two weeks in February, presented as tutorial chapters on topics such as Boosting, Data Mining, Kernel Methods, Logic, Reinforcement Learning, and Statistical Learning Theory. The papers provide an in-depth overview of these exciting new areas, contain a large set of references, and thereby provide the interested reader with further information to start or to pursue his own research in these directions. Complementary to the book, a recorded video of the presentations during the Summer School can be obtained at http://mlg. anu. edu. au/summer2002 It is our hope that graduate students, lecturers, and researchers alike will ?nd this book useful in learning and teaching Machine Learning, thereby continuing the mission of the Summer School.

This book presents revised reviewed versions of lectures given during the Machine Learning Summer School held in Canberra, Australia, in February 2002.
The lectures address the following key topics in algorithmic learning: statistical learning theory, kernel methods, boosting, reinforcement learning, theory learning, association rule learning, and learning linear classifier systems. Thus, the book is well balanced between classical topics and new approaches in machine learning.
Advanced students and lecturers will find this book a coherent in-depth overview of this exciting area, while researchers will use this book as a valuable source of reference.
