Machine Learning A Probabilistic Perspective
With the ever increasing amounts of data in electronic form, the need for automated methods for data analysis continues to grow. The goal of machine learning is to develop methods that can automatically detect patterns in data, and then to use the uncovered patterns to predict future data or other outcomes of interest. Machine learning is thus closely related to the fields of statistics and data mining, but differs slightly in terms of its emphasis and terminology. This book provides a detailed introduction to the field, and includes worked examples drawn from application domains such as molecular biology, text processing, computer vision, and robotics.
