This exciting addition to the McGraw-Hill Series in Computer Science focuses on the concepts and techniques that contribute to the rapidly changing field of machine learningincluding probability and statistics, artificial intelligence, and neural networksunifying them all in a logical and coherent manner. Machine Learning serves as a useful reference tool for software developers and researchers, as well as an outstanding text for college students.
An introductory text on primary approaches to machine learning and the study of computer algorithms that improve automatically through experience. Introduce basics concepts from statistics, artificial intelligence, information theory, and other disciplines as need arises, with balanced coverage of theory and practice, and presents major algorithms with illustrations of their use. Includes chapter exercises. Online data sets and implementations of several algorithms are available on a Web site. No prior background in artificial intelligence or statistics is assumed. For advanced undergraduates and graduate students in computer science, engineering, statistics, and social sciences, as well as software professionals. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
