He has also been on the program committees of numerous other conferences and workshops on AI and databases. He edited and coedited several collections on KDD, including two books— Knowledge Discovery in Databases ( AAAI Press, 1991) and Advances in Knowledge Discovery in Databases (AAAI Press, 1996)—and has many other publications in the areas of AI and databases. He is a coeditor in chief of the new D ata Mining and Knowledge Discovery j ournal. Piatetsky-Shapiro founded and moderates the KDD Nuggets electronic newsletter ( and is the web master for Knowledge Discovery Mine (< ~kdd /index.html>). cal Engineering Departments at Caltech (1994) and regularly conducts tutorials on probabilistic learning algorithms at national conferences (including UAI-93, AAAI-94, CAIA-95, IJCAI-95). He is general chair of the Sixth International Workshop on AI and Statistics, to be held in 1997. Smyth’s research interests include statistical pattern recognition, machine learning, decision theory, probabilistic reasoning, information theory, and the application of probability and statistics in AI. He has published 16 journal papers, 10 book chapters, and 60 conference papers on these topics.
