Book Description

Machine learning methods are now an important tool for scientists, researchers, engineers and students in a wide range of areas.  This book is written for people who want to adopt and use the main tools of machine learning, but aren’t necessarily going to want to be machine learning researchers. Intended for students in final year undergraduate or first year graduate  programs in machine learning, this textbook is a machine learning toolkit. Applied Machine Learning covers many topics for people who want to use machine learning processes to get things done, with a strong emphasis on using existing tools and packages, rather than writing one’s own .

A companion to the author's Probability and for Science, this book picks up where the earlier book left off (but also supplies a summary of probability that the reader can use).

Emphasizing the usefulness of standard machinery from applied statistics, this textbook gives an overview of the major applied areas in learning, including coverage of:

  • classification using standard machinery (naive bayes; nearest neighbor; SVM)
  • clustering and vector quantization (largely as in PSCS)
  • PCA (largely as in PSCS)
  • variants of PCA (NIPALS; latent semantic ; canonical correlation )
  • linear regression (largely as in PSCS)
  • generalized linear models including logistic regression
  • model selection with Lasso, elasticnet
  • robustness and m-estimators
  • Markov chains and HMM’s (largely as in PSCS)
  • EM in fairly gory detail; long experience teaching this suggests one detailed example is required, which students hate; but once they’ve been through that, the next one is easy
  • simple models (in the variational inference section)
  • classification with neural networks, with a particular emphasis on
  • image classification
  • autoencoding with neural networks
  • structure learning
