by G. James, D. Witten, T. Hastie, R. Tibshirani - Springer
This book provides an introduction to statistical learning methods. It contains a number of R labs with detailed explanations on how to implement the various methods in real life settings and it is a valuable resource for a practicing data scientist.
by Yoshua Bengio - Now Publishers
This book discusses the principles of learning algorithms for deep architectures, in particular those exploiting as building blocks unsupervised learning of single-layer models such as Restricted Boltzmann Machines, used to construct deeper models.
by Robert E. Schapire, Yoav Freund - The MIT Press
Boosting is an approach to machine learning based on the idea of creating a highly accurate predictor by combining many weak and inaccurate 'rules of thumb'. A remarkably rich theory has evolved around boosting, with connections to a range of topics.
by T. Hastie, R. Tibshirani, J. Friedman - Springer
This book brings together many of the important new ideas in learning, and explains them in a statistical framework. The authors emphasize the methods and their conceptual underpinnings rather than their theoretical properties.
