Hastie-Tibshirani Statistical Learning Course Now Open

Machine learning is hot, hot, hot. I can't imagine better instructors (or scholars) in the area than H&T (great videos), and the course is also a fine way to learn R. It's happening now (started just last week) and runs through late March. Just go to the course site to register. The book is James, Witten, Hastie and Tibshirani (JWHT), Introduction to Statistical Learning, with Applications in R, Springer, 2013. The book homepage has a free pdf download as well as a variety of related information.
