Machine Learning, Neural and Statistical Classification

by D. Michie, D.J. Spiegelhalter, C.C. Taylor (eds)

The aim of this book is to provide an up-to-date review of different approaches to classification, compare their performance on a wide range of challenging data-sets, and draw conclusions on their applicability to realistic industrial problems.

As the book's title suggests, a wide variety of approaches has been taken towards this task. Three main historical strands of research can be identified: statistical, machine learning and neural network.

Report writing for Data Science in R

by Roger D. Peng

This book teaches the concepts and tools behind reporting modern data analyses in a reproducible manner. Reproducibility is the idea that data analyses should be published or made available with their data and software code so that others may verify the findings and build upon them. The need for reproducible report writing is increasing dramatically as data analyses become more complex, involving larger datasets and more sophisticated computations.

Reproducibility allows for people to focus on the actual content of a data analysis, rather than on superficial details reported in a written summary. In addition, reproducibility makes an analysis more useful to others because the data and code that actually conducted the analysis are available.

This book will focus on literate statistical analysis tools which allow one to publish data analyses in a single document that allows others to easily execute the same analysis to obtain the same results.

 

 

An Introduction to Statistical Learning with Applications in R

by Gareth James, Daniela Witten, Trevor Hastie and Robert Tibshirani

This book provides an introduction to statistical learning methods.

It is aimed for upper level undergraduate students, masters students and Ph.D. students in the non-mathematical sciences.

The book also contains a number of R labs with detailed explanations on how to implement the various methods in real life settings, and should be a valuable resource for a practicing data scientist.
