Machine Learning – A Few Links and Tweets

On Machine Learning from A free book on ML – A First Encounter of Machine Learning by Max Welling

The first reason for the recent successes of machine learning and the growth of the field as a whole is rooted in its multidisciplinary character. Machine learning emerged from AI but quickly incorporated ideas from fields as diverse as statistics, probability, computer science, information theory, convex optimization, control theory, cognitive science, theoretical neuroscience, physics and more.
The second, perhaps more important reason for the growth of m
achine learning is the exponential growth of both available data and computer power. While the field is build on theory and tools developed statistics machine learning recognizes that the most exiting progress can be made to leverage the enormous flood of data that is generated each year by satellites, sky observatories, particle accelerators, the human genome project, banks, the stock market, the army, seismic measurements, the internet, video, scanned text and so on.

On why this book was written

Much of machine learning is built upon concepts from mathematics such as partial derivatives, eigenvalue decompositions, multivariate probability densities and so on. I quickly found that these concepts could not be taken for granted at an undergraduate level.

Meta

Once in a while, I go and gather my recent tweets and create a Tweet Cloud (a project developed by a student). I find some interesting topics, save the tweets and start a blog. I have written about this Linked Tweet Cloud a couple of times.
