The Statistics and Machine Learning Interface Meeting was held in Manchester, UK from Thursday, 23 July 2009 to Friday, 24 July 2009 at the Room 2.15, School of Computer Science.

This workshop is an interface meeting between statisticians and machine learning researchers. The subject of the meeting will be multiple output Gaussian processes (also known as cokriging and multi-task kernel learning).

The objective of the meeting is to bring a small group of selected researchers together to try and exchange issues and ideas in an effort to determine interesting future challenges and common directions of research. The list of invitees is drawn heavily from researchers in the MUCM project, UK ML researchers interested in GPs and known international people with an interest in this area.

The meeting will take place across two days. There is no registration fee for the invited attendees, but you will have to cover your own travel and accommodation costs.

Our aim is to have a further workshop at the NIPS conference in Vancouver where we will also interface with researchers that interpret covariance functions as kernels in Hilbert spaces and use multi-output covariance functions in "multi-task learning".
