A Brief Introduction to Machine Learning for Engineers
by Osvaldo Simeone
Publisher: arXiv.org 2017
Number of pages: 237
This monograph aims at providing an introduction to key concepts, algorithms, and theoretical results in machine learning. The treatment concentrates on probabilistic models for supervised and unsupervised learning problems. It introduces fundamental concepts and algorithms by building on first principles, while also exposing the reader to more advanced topics with extensive pointers to the literature, within a unified notation and mathematical framework.
