Book :: Machine Learning
Compared to ‘Pattern Classification‘ from Richard O. Duda, this book might give a slightly broader overview of the domain of machine learning, ranging from supervised learning to genetic algorithms and reinforcement learning. This book might be the best place to get started if you think you lack the mathematical background to start with more theoretical works such as ‘Pattern Classification‘. This book covers most of the major machine learning algorithms and explains them in a practical and intuitive manner. As such, it can be seen as an easy way into the world of machine learning, and I would recommend it to anyone who is new to the domain of pattern recognition and data science.
