Probabilistic Machine Learning book – a great free reference for maths of machine learning


At the #universityofoxford I focus a lot on the mathematics aspect of AI

 

I recommend eight books for the mathematics of AI

 

 

  1. The Nature Of Statistical Learning Theory By Vladimir Vapnik.
  2. Pattern Classification By Richard O Duda
  3. Machine Learning: An Algorithmic Perspective, Second Edition By Stephen Marsland
  4. The Elements of Statistical Learning: Data Mining, Inference, and Prediction, Second Edition By Trevor Hastie, Robert Tibshirani, Jerome Friedman
  5. Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning (Information Science and Statistics) By Christopher M. Bishop
  6. Machine Learning: The Art and Science of Algorithms that Make Sense of Data By Peter Flach
  7. Deep Learning By Goodfellow, Bengio and Corville
  8. Machine Learning: A Probabilistic Perspective by Kevin Murphy

 

Now, there is a new version of Machine Learning: A Probabilistic Perspective by Kevin Murphy

This is an amazing book – last published in 2012

The structure below and link to access below

 

If you can, I recommend you should buy this book, as I will – because this is very generous of Kevin Murphy and MIT press

 

The structure is very detailed and the book takes a Bayesian perspective
