Machine Learning in Action

Buy

After college I went to work for Intel in California and mainland China. Originally my plan was to go back to grad school after two years, but time flies when you are having fun, and two years turned into six. I realized I had to go back at that point, and I didn’t want to do night school or online learning, I wanted to sit on campus and soak up everything a university has to offer. The best part of college is not the classes you take or research you do, but the peripheral things: meeting people, going to seminars, joining organizations, dropping in on classes, and learning what you don’t know.

Summary

Machine Learning in Action is unique book that blends the foundational theories of machine learning with the practical realities of building tools for everyday data analysis. You'll use the flexible Python programming language to build programs that implement algorithms for data classification, forecasting, recommendations, and higher-level features like summarization and simplification.

About the Book

A machine is said to learn when its performance improves with experience. Learning requires algorithms and programs that capture data and ferret out the interesting or useful patterns. Once the specialized domain of analysts and mathematicians, machine learning is becoming a skill needed by many.

Machine Learning in Action is a clearly written tutorial for developers. It avoids academic language and takes you straight to the techniques you'll use in your day-to-day work. Many (Python) examples present the core algorithms of statistical data processing, data analysis, and data visualization in code you can reuse. You'll understand the concepts and how they fit in with tactical tasks like classification, forecasting, recommendations, and higher-level features like summarization and simplification.

Readers need no prior experience with machine learning or statistical processing. Familiarity with Python is helpful.

What's Inside
  • A no-nonsense introduction
  • Examples showing common ML tasks
  • Everyday data analysis
  • Implementing classic algorithms like Apriori and Adaboos

Effective C#: 50 Specific Ways to Improve Your C# (Effective Software Development)
Effective C#: 50 Specific Ways to Improve Your C# (Effective Software Development)

C#'s resemblances to C++, Java, and C make it easier to learn, but there's a downside: C# programmers often continue to use older techniques when far better alternatives are available. In Effective C#, respected .NET expert Bill Wagner identifies fifty ways you can start leveraging the full power of C# in order to write faster,...

Real World Haskell
Real World Haskell

Haskell is a deep language; we think learning it is a hugely rewarding experience. We will focus on three elements as we explain why. The first is novelty: we invite you to think about programming from a different and valuable perspective. The second is power: we’ll show you how to create software that is short, fast, and safe....

Molecular Basis of Thyroid Cancer (Cancer Treatment and Research)
Thyroid cancer is the fastest growing cancer in the U.S., especially among women. Given the relative success we have had in its treatment, there is a need to capitalize on it by better understanding the factors that underpin this malignancy, and exploring better strategies for diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up. To do so, we must...
