A Brief Introduction to Machine Learning for Engineers

Book cover for A Brief Introduction to Machine Learning for Engineers

This monograph aims at providing an introduction to key concepts, algorithms, and theoretical results in machine learning. The treatment concentrates on probabilistic models for supervised and unsupervised learning problems.

In addition to that it introduces fundamental concepts and algorithms by building on first principles, while also exposing the reader to more advanced topics with extensive pointers to the literature, within a unified notation and mathematical framework.

Machine Learning from Scratch

Book cover for Machine Learning from Scratch

This book covers the building blocks of the most common methods in machine learning. This set of methods is like a toolbox for machine learning engineers. Those entering the field of machine learning should feel comfortable with this toolbox so they have the right tool for a variety of tasks.

Each chapter in this book corresponds to a single machine learning method or group of methods. In other words, each chapter focuses on a single tool within the ML toolbox.

Understanding Machine Learning: From Theory to Algorithms

Book cover for  Understanding Machine Learning: From Theory to Algorithms

The aim of this textbook is to introduce machine learning, and the algorithmic paradigms it offers, in a principled way. The book provides a theoretical account of the fundamentals underlying machine learning and the mathematical derivations that transform these principles into practical algorithms.


R

Advanced R Programming

Book cover for Advanced R Programming

This book is designed primarily for R users who want to improve their programming skills and understanding of the language and explains some of R’s quirks and shows how some parts that seem horrible do have a positive side.

Data Analysis and Prediction Algorithms with R

Book cover for Data Analysis and Prediction Algorithms with R

The demand for skilled data science practitioners in industry, academia, and government is rapidly growing.

This book introduces concepts from probability, statistical inference, linear regression and machine learning and R programming skills.

The R Inferno

Book cover for The R Inferno

An essential guide to the trouble spots and oddities of R. In spite of the quirks exposed here, R is the best computing environment for most data analysis tasks.

R is free, open-source, and has thousands of contributed packages.


Python
