Machine Learning: A Probabilistic Perspective Kevin P. Murphy
Publisher: MIT Press
Feb 19, 2014 - In recent years, probabilistic-based machine learning methods have been developed and successfully used in many areas in bioinformatics. Jun 19, 2010 - Mike Jordan and his grad students teach a course at Berkeley called Practical Machine Learning which presents a broad overview of modern statistical machine learning from a practitioner's perspective. Regardless of an individual's perspective on the value of these methods though, there is little doubt that significant attention is being paid to them. It is in the best interest of all patent practitioners to have a basic understanding of how these methods work, and how they are being applied to patents. Probability can be very counter-intuitive. Consider Probabilistic Graphical Models by Koller and Friedman as an alternate text for graphical methods, albeit in a totally different prose style than this text. Murphy, “Machine Learning: A Probabilistic Perspective”, MIT Press, 2012. I'm also adding a reference for looking at probability from the Bayesian perspective. Machine Learning: An Algorithmic Perspective The following is a review of Machine Learning: An Algorithmic Perspective by Marsland. Mar 28, 2011 - Review: Machine Learning. Machine learning (ML) is one of those topics that elicits widely varying responses. Some folks think it's rubbish for trading, perhaps be premature. Different methods tackle the problem from different perspectives. Dec 26, 2010 - In the previous list, I thought it would be good to recommend some lighter texts as introductions to topics like probability theory and machine learning. Aug 4, 2013 - I think literary scholars are about to face a similarly productive challenge from the discipline of machine learning — a subfield of computer science that studies learning as a problem of generalization from limited evidence. Jan 1, 2014 - To understand learning of parameters for probabilistic graphical models To understand actions and decisions with Kevin P. Based upon subsequent discussions and feedback, I've changed my view. Straight into the deep end is the way to to choose from the probability list, in order to build a base in probability theory. Aug 2, 2013 - One of the most polarizing collection of tasks, associated with patent analytics, is the use of machine learning methods for organizing, and prioritizing documents.
