A First Encounter with Machine Learning
by Max Welling
Publisher: University of California Irvine 2011
Number of pages: 93
The book you see before you is meant for those starting out in the field of machine learning, who need a simple, intuitive explanation of some of the most useful algorithms that our field has to offer. A first read to wet the appetite so to speak, a prelude to the more technical and advanced text books.
