Reports of the Machine Learning and Inference Laboratory, a publication of our laboratory that has been continuously published since 1972 (before our group moved from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana to GMU, they were published under the name Reports of the Intelligent Systems Group). The reports are internally and sometimes externally reviewed, and now are made downloadable from MLI website (this website lists all publications, not only reports). Since our field is developing very rapidly and publishing a paper in a journal may take two or even three years when it becomes de facto obsolete, communicating quickly novel results via the mechanism of technical reports (now instantaneously available from our website) is an important service to the scientific community and very beneficial to students. Such practice is well-established at major U.S. universities.
