Your comprehensive entry-level guide to machine learning
While machine learning expertise doesn’t quite mean you can create your own Turing Test-proof android―as in the movie Ex Machina―it is a form of artificial intelligence and one of the most exciting technological means of identifying opportunities and solving problems fast and on a large scale. Anyone who masters the principles of machine learning is mastering a big part of our tech future and opening up incredible new directions in careers that include fraud detection, optimizing search results, serving real-time ads, credit-scoring, building accurate and sophisticated pricing models―and way, way more.
Unlike most machine learning books, the fully updated 2nd Edition of Machine Learning For Dummies doesn’t assume you have years of experience using programming languages such as Python (R source is also included in a downloadable form with comments and explanations), but lets you in on the ground floor, covering the entry-level materials that will get you up and running building models you need to perform practical tasks. It takes a look at the underlying―and fascinating―math principles that power machine learning but also shows that you don’t need to be a math whiz to build fun new tools and apply them to your work and study.
