An easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide for getting to grips with the real-world application of machine learning algorithms
- Explore statistics and complex mathematics for data-intensive applications
- Discover new developments in EM algorithm, PCA, and Bayesian regression
- Study patterns and make predictions across various datasets
Machine learning has gained tremendous popularity for its robust, fast predictions with large datasets. However, the actual forces behind its powerful output are the complex algorithms involving substantial statistical analysis that churn large datasets and generate substantial insight.
This second edition of Machine Learning Algorithms walks you through prominent development outcomes that have taken place relating to machine learning algorithms, which constitute significant contributions to the machine learning process and help you to strengthen and master statistical interpretation across the areas of supervised, semi-supervised, and reinforcement learning. Once the core concepts of an algorithm have been covered, you’ll explore real-world examples based on the most diffused libraries, such as scikit-learn, NLTK, TensorFlow, and Keras. You will discover new topics such as principal component analysis (PCA), independent component analysis (ICA), Bayesian regression, discriminant analysis, advanced clustering, and Gaussian mixture.
By the end of this book, you will have studied machine-learning algorithms and be able to put them into production to make your machine-learning applications more innovative.
