Getting started with Machine Learning

There’s a been a lot of attention directed to AI and Machine learning lately so I’d like to collect great materials to get you up to speed.

Ping me if something is missing or shouldn’t be here.


Andrew Ng’s course —

Andrew Ng’s CS229 Stanford course —

Practical Machine Learning (part of PML, from John Hopkins University) is a lighter version compared to Andrew Ng’s ML class, with a little overlap —

AN’s ML class is a lot more advanced regarding algorithms, so requires more rigorous background knowledge and skills. 

PML is Practical, uses the language R, which is widely used in Predictive Analytics field in the industry.

ML is for more CS focused folks, uses Octave (Matlab-like language). 

You can use WEKA library if you use Java to develop. WEKA is wrapped also in R as well as in Python. But both R and Python has tons of ML libraries already.


Natural Language Processing by Dan Jurafsky & Christopher Manning –

Two books seem to be fundamental in this field:

  • Speech and Language Processing, by Chris Manning & Hinrich Schütze
  • Foundations of Statistical Natural Language Processing, by Daniel Jurafsky & James H. Martin
