Machine Learning For Absolute Beginners: A Plain English Introduction (Machine Learning from Scratch) Paperback - 1 Jan 2018
by Oliver Theobald
Machine Learning for Absolute Beginners Second Edition has been written and designed for absolute beginners. This means plain-English explanations and no coding experience required. Where core algorithms are introduced, clear explanations and visual examples are added to make it easy and engaging to follow along at home.

This major new edition features many topics not covered in the First Edition, including Cross-Validation, Data Scrubbing and Ensemble Modeling. Please note that this book is not a sequel to the First Edition, but rather a restructured and revamped version of the First Edition. Readers of the First Edition should not feel compelled to purchase this Second Edition.

In this step-by-step guide you will learn:
  • How to download free datasets
  • What tools and machine learning libraries you need
  • Data scrubbing techniques, including one-hot encoding, binning and dealing with missing data
  • Preparing data for analysis, including k-fold Validation
  • Regression analysis to create trend lines
  • Clustering, including k-means and k-nearest Neighbors
  • The basics of Neural Networks
  • Bias/Variance to improve your machine learning model
  • Decision Trees to decode classification
  • How to build your first Machine Learning Model to predict house values using Python
