I think, this book is a great introduction to machine learning for people who do not have good mathematical or statistical background. Of course, I didn’t.

Machine Learning by Ethem Alpaydin

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 data or past experience to solve a given problem.

Index of summation should be Y in the second summation Alex Kogan. It will also be of interest to engineers in the field who are concerned with the application of machine learning methods. The manual contains solutions to exercises and example Matlab programs. There is an algorithm called candidate elimination that incrementally updates the S- and G-sets as it sees training instances one by one.

Nov 04, Sunita Thapa rated it really liked it. Oct 01, Arkajit Dey rated it it was amazing. Trivia About Machine Learning. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. The book can be used by advanced undergraduates and graduate students who have completed courses in computer programming, probability, calculus, and linear algebra.

I’m torn on my reaction to this. The following lecture slides pdf and ppt are made available for instructors using the book.


In order to present a unified treatment of machine learning problems and solutions, it discusses many methods from different fields, including statistics, pattern recognition, neural networks, artificial intelligence, signal processing, control, and data mining. I listened to this as an audiobook. This mahine probably a great primer, I believe, for students learning programming and artificial intelligence.

Clearly written and clearly thought out, but shallow for anyone already familiar with the field. Omri Cohen rated it really liked it Sep 05, The upside, is that the book is currently very relevant, with its reference to ‘Alpha Go’, which is the artificial intelligence that beat one of the most complex b I listened to the audio-book very passively.

Reliable Face Recognition Methods: Dec 02, Abe Shocket rated it it was ok. Fatih I think the orange cover one is the first edition.

The ‘Machine Learning’ had a moderately sized emphasis on explaining various algorithms Open Preview See a Problem? See Mitchell, ; Russell and Norvig; To me, it felt like a mixture of concepts, mostly at a high level, but not giving enough understanding to know why one algorithm is picked over others and in what contexts.

Machine Learning

No math or code, but manages to convey the basic ideas behind fundamental ML algorithms from linear regressions to neural networks. However, the author provided a good dose of real world examples that made the material more accessible. But once that part has past, the author Alpaydin explains the conceptual ideas behind the algorithms and the thinking surro Summary: Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

Machine Learning Textbook: Introduction to Machine Learning (Ethem ALPAYDIN)

I listened to the audio-book very passively. Fourth line from the top of the page: Alpaydin does this without ever becoming really technical, and this book is for understanding the basic concepts, not the doing. 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 algorithms, and reinforcement learning.


Books are not really a good source once the you start to dig into an area moving at this pace — well, with the exception of understanding the math, and the statistics. I don’t know why it bothers me so much to see the word “nowadays”, which usual shows up in the abstract of a technical paper and then turns me off immediately.

A good introduction for everybody whether in IT or general business, allowing you introxuction understand the jargon and news in this fields. The book great insights about what is machine learning, how are were using it, ways to enforce learning in machine and as a whole what impact it will create in our lives. Huwenbo Shi rated it liked it Apr 03, I felt learninng was a good introduction to machine learning without being overly technical. Introduction to Machine Learning is a comprehensive textbook on the subject, covering a broad array of topics not usually included in introductory machine learning texts.

Dec 26, Julian M Drault rated leaning it was amazing. The very last eq on the bottom of the page; the prob is 0. Thus, I didn’t get what I was personally wanting possibly, through no fault of the author. This gives a great overview of what Machine Learning is and where it is being applied.

But for the lay-person, this could be a difficult book to follow.
