Understanding Machine Learning: From Theory to Algorithms
by Shai Shalev-Shwartz, Shai Ben-David
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 2014
Number of pages: 449
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.

This text focuses on theoretical aspects of Statistical Learning and Sequential Prediction. The minimax approach, which we emphasize throughout the course, offers a systematic way of comparing learning problems. We will discuss learning algorithms...

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.

This book describes and extends the scope of reinforcement learning. It also shows that there is already wide usage in numerous fields. Reinforcement learning can tackle control tasks that are too complex for traditional controllers.
