Just like electricity, Machine Learning will revolutionize our life in many ways – some of which are not even conceivable today. This book provides a thorough conceptual understanding of Machine Learning techniques and algorithms. Many of the mathematical concepts are explained in an intuitive manner. The book starts with an overview of machine learning and the underlying Mathematical and Statistical concepts before moving onto machine learning topics. It gradually builds up the depth, covering many of the present day machine learning algorithms, ending in Deep Learning and Reinforcement Learning algorithms. The book also covers some of the popular Machine Learning applications. The material in this book is agnostic to any specific programming language or hardware so that readers can try these concepts on whichever platforms they are already familiar with.

The goal of machine learning is to program computers to use example data or past experience to solve a given problem. Many successful applications of machine learning exist already, including systems that analyze past sales data to predict customer behavior, optimize robot behavior so that a task can be completed using minimum resources, and extract knowledge from bioinformatics data. Introduction to Machine Learning is a comprehensive textbook on the subject, covering a broad array of topics not usually included in introductory machine learning texts. Subjects include supervised learning; Bayesian decision theory; parametric, semi-parametric, and nonparametric methods; multivariate analysis; hidden Markov models; reinforcement learning; kernel machines; graphical models; Bayesian estimation; and statistical testing.Machine learning is rapidly becoming a skill that computer science students must master before graduation. The third edition of Introduction to Machine Learning reflects this shift, with added support for beginners, including selected solutions for exercises and additional example data sets (with code available online). Other substantial changes include discussions of outlier detection; ranking algorithms for perceptrons and support vector machines; matrix decomposition and spectral methods; distance estimation; new kernel algorithms; deep learning in multilayered perceptrons; and the nonparametric approach to Bayesian methods. All learning algorithms are explained so that students can easily move from the equations in the book to a computer program. The book can be used by both advanced undergraduates and graduate students. It will also be of interest to professionals who are concerned with the application of machine learning methods.

This textbook presents fundamental machine learning concepts in an easy to understand manner by providing practical advice, using straightforward examples, and offering engaging discussions of relevant applications. The main topics include Bayesian classifiers, nearest-neighbor classifiers, linear and polynomial classifiers, decision trees, neural networks, and support vector machines. Later chapters show how to combine these simple tools by way of “boosting,” how to exploit them in more complicated domains, and how to deal with diverse advanced practical issues. One chapter is dedicated to the popular genetic algorithms. This revised edition contains three entirely new chapters on critical topics regarding the pragmatic application of machine learning in industry. The chapters examine multi-label domains, unsupervised learning and its use in deep learning, and logical approaches to induction. Numerous chapters have been expanded, and the presentation of the material has been enhanced. The book contains many new exercises, numerous solved examples, thought-provoking experiments, and computer assignments for independent work.

We've all heard of AI (artificial intelligence) but what does machine learning really mean? The phrase "Machine Learning" refers to the automatic detection of meaningful data by computing systems. In the last few decades, it has become a common tool in almost any task that needs to understand data from large data sets. One of the biggest application of machine learning technology is the search engine. Search engines learn how to provide the best results based on historic, trending, and relative data sets. When you look at anti-spam software, it learns how to filter email messages. Going to credit cards, transactions are secured by software that knows when fraudulent activities are going on. We currently have digital cameras that detect faces, personal assistant applications that are intelligent enough to learn voice commands. These are all applications based on machine learning! Cars are becoming equipped with accident prevention systems that are powered by machine learning algorithms. Machine learning is also widely used in scientific fields like bioinformatics and astronomy. In contrast to traditional computing, and due to the complexity of patterns that need to be detected, it is hard for a programmer to provide a fine-detailed specification on the execution of these tasks. So where do we start? How about key machine learning algorithms? These are algorithms that are used in the real world, and they give a wide spectrum of the different learning techniques. There are also different algorithms that are better suited for big data. The world has become increasingly connected, and as a result, and in many business applications, there is a lot of data and computation needed to learn different concepts. As you can imagine, the topic of machine learning, depending on the application, can be contained or wildly complex. This book will give you an overview of what machine learning is capable of and some basic algorithms to help you understand the fundamentals of the technology. Finally, how will the employment landscape going to be affected by machine learning in the near future? In later chapters of this book, we will talk about the skills that a you will need to have to work in a profession related to machine learning, and how each field might be affected by the age of computerization. The future is changing very quickly and professionals will need to adapt to ever-evolving technology if they want to stand a chance in keeping up with the joneses.
