Artificial Intelligence - Machine Learning

Go To


I'm just finishing my reading of the Artificial Intelligence a modern approach 3rd Ed. by Perter Norvig. I used this book mostly as an introduction, and to learn more about the general concept of AI. I'll soon start in a machine learning study group with one of my professors and I'd like to know if anyone knows some good books to learn more about Machine Learning (especially Neural Nets, but not just it).

Elements of Statistical Learning

This book (there's a free PDF available in the link webpage) is an excellent and nearly exhaustive review of the field of machine learning. I know this sounds a bit presumptuous, but it's that good.

By the way, even though the book of Norvig and Russell is very good, it provides next to nothing on machine learning. So, the PDF will be a tough read if you are not sure of your math background.

Thanks I'll take a look at this book, I have a medium foundation on mathematics, I've taken some courses in uni. Well thanks I'll take a look at the PD - Raphael Mitrious 2012-04-03 23:27
