Clever Algorithms: Statistical Machine Learning Recipes
Clever Algorithms: Statistical Machine Learning Recipes is an open source book that has the goal to describe a large number of algorithmic techniques from the the field of statistical machine learning in a complete, consistent, and centralized manner such that they are accessible, usable, and understandable. This is a repository for the book project used during the development and ongoing maintenance of the books’ content.
The book will be released for free on the website CleverAlgorithms.com and will be available for purchase as a paperback and ebook.
|Title||Clever Algorithms: Statistical Machine Learning Recipes|
Implementing an Machine Learning algorithms is difficult. Algorithm descriptions may be incomplete, inconsistent, and distributed across a number of papers, chapters and even websites. This can result in varied interpretations of algorithms, undue attrition of algorithms, and ultimately bad science. This book is an effort to address these issues by providing a handbook of algorithmic recipes drawn from the field of Machine Learning, described in a complete, consistent, and centralized manner. These standardized descriptions were carefully designed to be accessible, usable, and understandable. An encyclopedic algorithm reference, this book is intended for research scientists, engineers, students, and interested amateurs. Each algorithm description provides a working code example in R.
How to Build
- Assumes a Linux or Mac workstation with make, Latex such as TeXLive or MacTex installed and maybe JabRef
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:jbrownlee/CleverAlgorithmsMachineLearning.git
make r(creates the file
make vl(to view the PDF on linux) or
make vm(to view the PDF on mac)
