Understanding Machine Learning: From Theory to Understanding

by Shai Ben-David and Shai Shalev-Shwartz

Understanding Machine Learning: From Theory to Understanding Machine learning is one of the fastest growing areas of computer science, with far-reaching applications. The aim of this textbook is to introduce machine learning, and the algorithmic paradigms it offers, in a principled way.

The book provides an extensive theoretical account of the fundamental ideas underlying machine learning and the mathematical derivations that transform these principles into practical algorithms. Following a presentation of the basics of the field, the book covers a wide array of central topics that have not been addressed by previous textbooks. These include a discussion of the computational complexity of learning and the concepts of convexity and stability; important algorithmic paradigms including stochastic gradient descent, neural networks, and structured output learning; and emerging theoretical concepts such as the PAC-Bayes approach and compression-based bounds.

Designed for an advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate course, the text makes the fundamentals and algorithms of machine learning accessible to students and non-expert readers in statistics, computer science, mathematics, and engineering.

A Brief Introduction to Neural Networks

by David Kriesel

A Brief Introduction to Neural Networks The purpose of this book is to help you master the core concepts of neural networks, including modern techniques for deep learning.

After working through the book you will have written code that uses neural networks and deep learning to solve complex pattern recognition problems.

And you will have a foundation to use neural networks and deep learning to attack problems of your own devising.
