Abstract : StatLog is a European Community (ESPRIT) funded project which began in October 1990. There are about 10 academic and industrial partners involved in the project. Its aim is to complete an evaluation of the performance of Machine Learning and Statistical Algorithms on large-scale, complex commercial and industrial problems. The objectives of the project are threefold: (1). to provide critical performance measurements, and criteria for measurement on available Learning Algorithms which improve confidence in full exploitation; (2). to indicate the nature and scope of next-stage development which particular algorithms require to meet commercial performance expectations; (3). to indicate the most promising avenues of development for the commercially immature approaches. This paper describes the project and the progress completed to date.
