Approaching (Almost) Any Machine Learning Problem :by Abhishek

This is not a traditional book.
The book has a lot of code. If you don’t like the code first approach do not buy this book. Making code available on Github is not an option.

This book is for people who have some theoretical knowledge of machine learning and deep learning and want to dive into applied machine learning. The book doesn’t explain the algorithms but is more oriented towards how and what should you use to solve machine learning and deep learning problems. The book is not for you if you are looking for pure basics. The book is for you if you are looking for guidance on approaching machine learning problems. The book is best enjoyed with a cup of coffee and a laptop/workstation where you can code along.

Table of contents:
– Setting up your working environment
– Supervised vs unsupervised learning
– Cross-validation
– Evaluation metrics
– Arranging machine learning projects
– Approaching categorical variables
– Feature engineering
– Feature selection
– Hyperparameter optimization
– Approaching image classification & segmentation
– Approaching text classification/regression
– Approaching ensembling and stacking
– Approaching reproducible code & model serving

There are no sub-headings. Important terms are written in bold.

I will be answering all your queries related to the book and will be making YouTube tutorials to cover what has not been discussed in the book. To ask questions/doubts, please create an issue on github repo: https: //github.com/abhishekkrthakur/approachingalmost

Machine Learning for Beginners: Learn to Build Machine Learning Systems Using Python (English Edition) BY  Harsh Bhasin

This book covers important concepts and topics in machine learning. It begins with data cleansing and presents an overview of feature selection. It then talks about training and testing, cross-validation, and feature selection. The book covers algorithms and implementations of the most common feature selection techniques. The book then focuses on linear regression and gradient descent. Some of the important classification techniques such as K-Nearest neighbors, logistic regression, naïve Bayesian, and linear Discriminant analysis are covered in the book. It then gives an overview of neural networks and explains the biological background, the limitations of the perceptron, and the backpropagation model. The support vector machines and kernel methods are also included in the book. It then shows how to implement decision trees and random forests.

Applied Machine Learning by Madan GopaL

Very good book for developing the theoretical basis of machine learning. The approach is mathematical and demands a graduate level mathematical understanding. It covers statistical learning, ANN and genetic algorithm also.

Real-World Machine Learning Paperback : by Henrik Brink 

Machine learning systems help you find valuable insights and patters in data which you had never recognized in the traditional methods. In the real world, ML techniques give you a way to identify trends, forecast behavior and make fact-based recommendations. It’s a hot and growing field and up-to speed ML developers are in demand. Real-World Machine Learning will teach you the concepts and techniques you need to be a successful machine learning practitioner without overdosing you on abstract theory and complex mathematics. By working through immediately relevant examples in Python, you’ll build skills in data acquisition and modelling, classification and regression.

Machine Learning with Python for Everyone by Pearson : by Mark Fenner (Author)

Students are crushing to master powerful machine learning techniques for improving decision-making and scaling analysis to immense datasets. Machine learning with Python for everyone brings together all they’ll need to succeed: a practical understanding of the machine learning process, accessible code, skills for implementing that process with Python and the scikit-learn library, and real expertise in using learning systems intelligently.Reflecting 20 years of experience teaching non-specialists, the author teaches through carefully-crafted datasets that are complex enough to be interesting, but simple enough for non-specialists. Building on this foundation, the book presents real-world case studies that apply his lessons in detailed, nuanced ways. Throughout, he offers clear narratives, practical “code-alongs,” and easy-to-understand images — focusing on Mathematics only where it’s necessary to make connection and deepen insight.

Understanding Machine Learning: From Theory to Algorithms Paperback

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 a theoretical account of the fundamentals underlying machine learning and the mathematical derivations that transform these principles into practical algorithms. Following a presentation of the basics, the book covers a wide array of central topics unaddressed 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 advanced undergraduates or beginning graduates, the text makes the fundamentals and algorithms of machine learning accessible to students and non-expert readers in statistics, computer science, mathematics and engineering.
