Learning and Intelligent Optimization (LION) is the combination of learning from data and optimization applied to solve complex problems. This book is about increasing the automation level and connecting data directly to decisions and actions.
by Shai Shalev-Shwartz, Shai Ben-David - Cambridge University Press
This book introduces machine learning and the algorithmic paradigms it offers. It provides a theoretical account of the fundamentals underlying machine learning and mathematical derivations that transform these principles into practical algorithms.
by Richard S. Sutton, Andrew G. Barto - The MIT Press
The book provides a clear and simple account of the key ideas and algorithms of reinforcement learning. It covers the history and the most recent developments and applications. The only necessary mathematical background are concepts of probability.
