You may have already found AIFAD (Automated Induction of Functions over
Algebraic Datatypes), a symbolic machine learning program, which generalizes
induction of decision trees to structured values, and is pretty efficient
even on large amounts of data.  You can find the sources and documentation

It's also available as a Godi-package, which makes it easier to install,
because it depends on other libraries.

We use Lacaml, a fairly complete and convenient binding to BLAS/LAPACK, here
at Jane Street Capital for implementing numeric algorithms to analyse very
substantial amounts of financial data.  I unfortunately cannot give you
details about this work.  You can get Lacaml through Godi or download it

Best regards,
