PCA and Friends: A useful review

Here is a potentially-useful review of PCA and other "geometric methods for feature extraction and dimensional reduction" (that's the paper title). It's by Chris Burges, who has done some nenat machine-learning work at Microsoft Research. The selection of algorithms reviewed is a bit limited by what Burges thinks is cool/useful and what he has used in the past, but hey, that's probably an OK criterion.

[Update: eliminated claim Burges invented SMO when really it was John Platt.]
