Machine Learning For Dummies

Published: February 9, 2021

Overview

One of Mark Cuban’s top reads for better understanding A.I. (inc.com, 2021)

Your comprehensive entry-level guide to machine learning

While machine learning expertise doesn’t quite mean you can create your own Turing Test-proof android—as in the movie Ex Machina—it is a form of artificial intelligence and one of the most exciting technological means of identifying opportunities and solving problems fast and on a large scale. Anyone who masters the principles of machine learning is mastering a big part of our tech future and opening up incredible new directions in careers that include fraud detection, optimizing search results, serving real-time ads, credit-scoring, building accurate and sophisticated pricing models—and way, way more.

Unlike most machine learning books, the fully updated 2nd Edition of Machine Learning For Dummies doesn't assume you have years of experience using programming languages such as Python (R source is also included in a downloadable form with comments and explanations), but lets you in on the ground floor, covering the entry-level materials that will get you up and running building models you need to perform practical tasks. It takes a look at the underlying—and fascinating—math principles that power machine learning but also shows that you don't need to be a math whiz to build fun new tools and apply them to your work and study.

  • Understand the history of AI and machine learning
  • Work with Python 3.8 and TensorFlow 2.x (and R as a download)
  • Build and test your own models
  • Use the latest datasets, rather than the worn out data found in other books
  • Apply machine learning to real problems

Whether you want to learn for college or to enhance your business or career performance, this friendly beginner's guide is your best introduction to machine learning, allowing you to become quickly confident using this amazing and fast-developing technology that's impacting lives for the better all over the world.

Machine Learning For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Machine learning is an incredible technology that you use more often than you think today and that has the potential to do even more tomorrow. The interesting thing about machine learning is that Python makes the task easier than most people realize because it comes with a lot of built-in and extended support (through the use of libraries, datasets, and other resources). With that in mind, this Cheat Sheet helps you access the most commonly needed reminders for making your machine learning experience fast and easy.
