Comprehensive machine learning text[book]?
November 5, 2013 7:33 AM Subscribe
As a post-Masters student in a technical discipline -- computer-science-related -- I find myself wishing to fill in knowledge gaps from courses that I took in school. I'm looking for one, long, comprehensive text on Machine Learning (or several shorter texts) from which to self-teach the whole ML process from beginning to end.
Topics of interest would be
- supervised, unsupervised and semi-supervised learning
- clustering, classification
Having already delved into Manning's 'Foundations of Statistical Natural Language Processing
' in school I feel I've a decent knowledge of SVMs, perceptrons, clustering, (H)MMs, etc. but I'd like to learn more about general algorithm design, ML and how it has evolved over the years. Thanks! :)
