Machine Learning by Ethem Alpaydin
The goal of machine learning is to program computers to use example data or past experience to solve a given problem. Huwenbo Shi rated it liked it Apr 03, Oscillates between being too simple and too alpayein.
Many successful applications of machine learning exist already, including systems that analyze past sales data to predict customer behavior, recognize faces or spoken speech, optimize robot behavior so that a task can be completed using minimum resources, and extract knowledge from bioinformatics data. Find in a Library. The author gives you a nice, simple and quick overview of machine learning but gives you little of how to write a program yourself. It is the basis of the new approach in computing where we do not write programs but collect data; the idea is to learn the algorithms for the tasks automatically from data.
If you like books and love to build cool products, we may be looking for you. Alpaydin does this without ever becoming really technical, and this book is for understanding the basic concepts, not the doing. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. There is an algorithm called candidate elimination that incrementally updates the S- and G-sets as it sees training instances one by one.
It gives a very broad overview of the different algorithms and methodologies available in the ML field.
No trivia or quizzes yet. As computing devices grow more ubiquitous, a larger part of our lives and work is recorded digitally, and as “Big Data” has gotten bigger, the theory of machine learning — the foundation of efforts to process that data into knowledge — has also advanced.
He was appointed Associate Professor in and Professor in in the same department. This gives a great overview of what Machine Learning is and where it is being applied. Lists with This Book. The book can be used by advanced undergraduates and graduate students who have completed courses in computer programming, probability, calculus, and linear algebra.
Jan 05, Brian Baquiran rated it liked it Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. Table of Contents and Sample Chapters. I’m torn on my reaction to this. I felt this was a good introduction to machine learning without being overly technical.
Sidharth Shah rated it liked it Oct 22, Jun 11, Zac rated it really liked it. A very well done, non-technical primer on machine learning.
The text covers such topics as supervised learning, Bayesian decision theory, parametric methods, multivariate methods, multilayer perceptrons, local models, hidden Markov models, assessing and comparing classification akpaydin, and reinforcement learning. The book never touches on how you yourself, or your business can start playing with machine learning. You can see all editions from here.
Oct 09, Scott rated it lezrning was amazing. I found issue with the mixing of important concepts with unimportant ones to the point which the big ideas are not presented clearly. Many successful applications of machine learning exist already, including systems that analyze past sales data to predict customer behavior, recognize faces or spoken speech, optimize robot behavior so that a task can be completed using minimum resources, a The goal of machine learning is to program computers to use example machiine or past experience to solve a given problem.
Not a deep dive into the mathematics or technical aspects of machine learning. Each chapter reads almost independently. The upside, is that the book is currently very relevant, with its reference to ‘Alpha Go’, yo is the artificial intelligence that beat one of the most complex b I listened to the audio-book very passively.
Mar 12, Nick Hargreaves rated it really liked it. Dec 17, John Norman lexrning it really liked it. OK as an introduction, but you have to have some familiarity with data mgt, programming, etc. He was appointed Associate Professor in and Professor in in the same department. It discusses many methods based in different fields, including statistics, pattern recognition, neural networks, artificial intelligence, signal processing, control, and data mining, in order to present a unified treatment of machine learning problems and solutions.
I got this book in an inroduction format; so thought it would be hard to understand with complicated formulas or algorithm, but it wasn’t complicated at all.
He describes the basics of machine learning and some applications; the use of machine learning algorithms for pattern recognition; artificial neural networks inspired by the human brain; algorithms that learn associations between instances, with such applications as customer segmentation and learning recommendations; and reinforcement learning, when an autonomous agent learns act so alpaydkn to maximize reward and minimize penalty.
However, the author provided a good dose of real world examples that made the material more accessible. If you like books and love to build cool products, we may be looking for you. It is more about what is machine learning, how it evolved, or evolving, and what are some of the important topic of machine learning.
Introduction to Machine Learning
A good introduction for everybody whether in IT or general business, allowing you to understand the jargon and news in this fields. It will also be of interest to engineers in the field ldarning are concerned with the application of machine learning methods. A very liberal-arts, high level explanation of machine learning techniques and broadly how they work.
Very decent introductory book. Nonetheless, if Machine Learning history, and fundamentals are for you, then I recommend ‘Machine Learning’.
A great read nontheless.
