Usama Fayyad joins Yahoo

Usama Fayyad led the data mining group at Microsoft Research a few years ago. He just joined Yahoo.

He and his group were relatively early applying statistical analysis techniques to massive data sets. I remember particularly liking his "Scaling Clustering Algorithms to Large Databases" paper.

Yahoo certainly has plenty of juicy, tasty data. Mmm... data.
