Deep Learning in Neural Networks: An Overview
by Juergen Schmidhuber - arXiv , 2014
In recent years, deep artificial neural networks (including recurrent ones) have won numerous contests in pattern recognition and machine learning. This historical survey compactly summarises relevant work, much of it from the previous millennium.
by Yoshua Bengio, Ian Goodfellow, Aaron Courville - MIT Press , 2014
This book can be useful for the university students learning about machine learning and the practitioners of machine learning, artificial intelligence, data-mining and data science aiming to better understand and take advantage of deep learning.
Algorithms for Reinforcement Learning
by Csaba Szepesvari - Morgan and Claypool Publishers , 2009
We focus on those algorithms of reinforcement learning that build on the theory of dynamic programming. We give a comprehensive catalog of learning problems, describe the core ideas, followed by the discussion of their properties and limitations.
A Survey of Statistical Network Models
by A. Goldenberg, A.X. Zheng, S.E. Fienberg, E.M. Airoldi - arXiv , 2009
We begin with the historical development of statistical network modeling and then we introduce some examples in the network literature. Our subsequent discussion focuses on prominent static and dynamic network models and their interconnections.
Machine Learning: The Complete Guide
- Wikipedia , 2014
Contents: Introduction and Main Principles; Background and Preliminaries; Knowledge discovery in Databases; Reasoning; Search Methods; Statistics; Main Learning Paradigms; Classification Tasks; Online Learning; Semi-supervised learning; etc.
Introduction to Machine Learning
by Alex Smola, S.V.N. Vishwanathan - Cambridge University Press , 2008
Over the past two decades Machine Learning has become one of the mainstays of information technology and a rather central part of our life. Smart data analysis will become even more pervasive as a necessary ingredient for technological progress.
An Introductory Study on Time Series Modeling and Forecasting
by Ratnadip Adhikari, R. K. Agrawal - arXiv , 2013
This work presents a concise description of some popular time series forecasting models used in practice, with their features. We describe three important classes of time series models, viz. the stochastic, neural networks and SVM based models.
The LION Way: Machine Learning plus Intelligent Optimization
by Roberto Battiti, Mauro Brunato - Lionsolver, Inc. , 2013
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.
A Course in Machine Learning
by Hal Daumé III - ciml.info , 2012
Tis is a set of introductory materials that covers most major aspects of modern machine learning (supervised and unsupervised learning, large margin methods, probabilistic modeling, etc.). It's focus is on broad applications with a rigorous backbone.
A First Encounter with Machine Learning
by Max Welling - University of California Irvine , 2011
The book you see before you is meant for those starting out in the field of machine learning, who need a simple, intuitive explanation of some of the most useful algorithms that our field has to offer. A prelude to the more advanced text books.
Bayesian Reasoning and Machine Learning
by David Barber - Cambridge University Press , 2011
The book is designed for final-year undergraduate students with limited background in linear algebra and calculus. Comprehensive and coherent, it develops everything from basics to advanced techniques within the framework of graphical models.
Introduction to Machine Learning
by Amnon Shashua - arXiv , 2009
Introduction to Machine learning covering Statistical Inference (Bayes, EM, ML/MaxEnt duality), algebraic and spectral methods (PCA, LDA, CCA, Clustering), and PAC learning (the Formal model, VC dimension, Double Sampling theorem).
The Elements of Statistical Learning: Data Mining, Inference, and Prediction
by T. Hastie, R. Tibshirani, J. Friedman - Springer , 2009
This book brings together many of the important new ideas in learning, and explains them in a statistical framework. The authors emphasize the methods and their conceptual underpinnings rather than their theoretical properties.
by C. Weber, M. Elshaw, N. M. Mayer - InTech , 2008
This book describes and extends the scope of reinforcement learning. It also shows that there is already wide usage in numerous fields. Reinforcement learning can tackle control tasks that are too complex for traditional controllers.
by Abdelhamid Mellouk, Abdennacer Chebira - InTech , 2009
Neural machine learning approaches, Hamiltonian neural networks, similarity discriminant analysis, machine learning methods for spoken dialogue simulation and optimization, linear subspace learning for facial expression analysis, and more.
How Are We To Know?
by Nils J. Nilsson - Stanford University , 2006
This book is about beliefs -- how we get them and how we evaluate them. It takes the form of a fictional conversation among three people and Gio, an intelligent robot. The level of exposition is neither technical nor deeply philosophical.
Reinforcement Learning: An Introduction
by Richard S. Sutton, Andrew G. Barto - The MIT Press , 1998
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.
