**Introduction To Machine Learning**

by Nils J Nilsson

1997**Number of pages**: 209

**Description**:

This book surveys many of the important topics in machine learning circa 1996. The intention was to pursue a middle ground between theory and practice. This book concentrates on the important ideas in machine learning -- it is neither a handbook of practice nor a compendium of theoretical proofs. The goal was to give the reader sufficient preparation to make the extensive literature on machine learning accessible.
