A Guide to Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and their Applications acts as a comprehensive guide to the innovative fields of machine learning and deep learning. The tutorial-style prose allows the reader to explore the topics from scratch and to broaden their knowledge of the theory and for practical understanding. By the time you are finished with this book, you will be confident with your knowledge of what machine learning is and how state-of-the-art algorithms can be utilized to solve real-world problems. Whether you are a student (high school, undergraduate, or graduate) or a data scientist, this book will supplement your current knowledge with rigorous yet practical tools to break down machine learning and familiarize yourself with best practices used in the industry.
About Machine Learning
In today’s world, machine learning is becoming increasingly ubiquitous as the forefront of methods for pattern recognition. These techniques require input data and allow the computer to learn from experience. Through the recent advances in data science software and the availability of libraries, it is now possible for programmers and basic users to get familiar with creating their own programs that are capable of learning from the data. Deep learning is the fastest-growing subset of machine learning and is loosely inspired by biological networks.
Why this book?
This book serves as a guide for both beginners and users of machine learning to become more familiar with the fields on both a theoretical basis and through a hands-on, practical example-based approach. Unlike other books on the subject, we use efficient, grounded tools to demonstrate the power of machine learning while guiding the reader from the fundamentals of data science and mathematics towards state-of-the-art algorithms and modern developments in the field. What’s special about this book is that the applications are at the center of the content and detailed commentary is present in every chapter. We also prioritize high-level, concrete explanations over less intuitive pathways to understanding. Moreover, this book was written by students and is for students.
For the Reader
With just knowledge of high school mathematics, readers can follow along. No knowledge of calculus, linear algebra, or programming is required, just a willingness to learn. This book builds understanding through intuitive explanations and direct applications. Through this content, you will learn both challenging yet elegant concepts to practice the application of machine learning to computer vision, natural language processing, and bioinformatics.
While most machine learning textbooks and guides are 30 USD at minimum, we believe in accessibility to knowledge. To reinforce this message, we have placed our book at a friendly price point. You can buy a paperback copy of our book for only 14.99 USD.
Here are some testimonials which attest to the strength of our book:
“We live in a golden age of machine learning with so many inventions happening and so much more left to do. At this juncture, it is of critical importance that machine learning is understood and accessible to students from all backgrounds and perspectives. It is exciting to see a high school student such as Siddharth putting the effort to help bridge the gap in demystifying machine learning for high school students.”
- Swami Sivabrumanian, VP of Amazon Web Services (AWS) AI
“This book is a tour de force through the scientific aspects of AI by a group of impressive young authors. I strongly recommend it.”
- Bernard Widrow, Prof. Emeritus of electrical engineering, Stanford University
If you want to start your AI journey, we believe that this is the best way to do it! It is time for us to democratize AI for all and to eliminate all bias and barriers which currently exist. Moreover, all proceeds of this work go to charities such as GirlsWhoCode. Thus, the purchase of the book will be for a noble cause.
