Sensors pervade our high-tech world - they link available computational power with physical applications. Sensors are rapidly catching up with computing devices in popularity and widespread use. As they become more varied and easy to use, the need to analyze sensor data grows. Scientists must understand sensor data for an extremely varied range of tasks, such as diagnosing automobiles, programming robots, analyzing traffic patterns, detecting terrorist threats, assuring the well-being of elderly persons living at home, and monitoring wildlife habitats.
