  1. Errata: Erratum: Emerging Topics and Challenges for Statistical Analysis and Data Mining Volume 4, Issue 3, 353, Article first published online: 31 March 2011


The Preview integrates a sample of emerging topics in statistical analysis and data mining which I collected at 4 relevant 2010 meetings and major challenges which correspond to them. They are grouped into Mixtures of Problem Data, Methodologies for Solutions, Challenges for Statistical Analysis and Data Mining, and Challenges Suggested during Review. This Preview is meant to be a provocative overview, but it is not meant to be a comprehensive or definitive research article. A vision of the near future in any area is there for us to perceive when we look for it carefully. It has the advantages of short term predictions and its disadvantages may be overcome by checking against current literature. In times of cascading change, such an informed Preview may be even more valuable than the far more typical Reviews of what has already been accomplished that are provided by most Journals in overabundance. Now let us welcome the new decade full of things that have never beenimagine the possibilities! © 2011 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Statistical Analysis and Data Mining 4: 3–8 2011
