My book ‘Practical Machine Learning in R and Python: Third edition’ on Amazon

Are you wondering whether to get into the ‘R’ bus or ‘Python’ bus?
My suggestion is to you is “Why not get into the ‘R and Python’ train?”

The third edition of my book ‘Practical Machine Learning with R and Python – Machine Learning in stereo’ is now available in both paperback ($12.99) and kindle ($8.99/Rs449) versions.  In the third edition all code sections have been re-formatted to use the fixed width font ‘Consolas’. This neatly organizes output which have columns like confusion matrix, dataframes etc to be columnar, making the code more readable.  There is a science to formatting too!! which improves the look and feel. It is little wonder that Steve Jobs had a keen passion for calligraphy! Additionally some typos have been fixed.

 

In this book I implement some of the most common, but important Machine Learning algorithms in R and equivalent Python code.
1. Practical machine with R and Python: Third Edition – Machine Learning in Stereo(Paperback-$12.99)
2. Practical machine with R and Python Third Edition – Machine Learning in Stereo(Kindle- $8.99/Rs449)

This book is ideal both for beginners and the experts in R and/or Python. Those starting their journey into datascience and ML will find the first 3 chapters useful, as they touch upon the most important programming constructs in R and Python and also deal with equivalent statements in R and Python. Those who are expert in either of the languages, R or Python, will find the equivalent code ideal for brushing up on the other language. And finally,those who are proficient in both languages, can use the R and Python implementations to internalize the ML algorithms better.

Here is a look at the topics covered

Presentation on ‘Machine Learning in plain English – Part 3

This is the 3rd and final part of Machine Learning in plain English -Part 3. In this presentation, I discuss the intuition behind SVMs, B-Splines, GAMs, Decision Trees, Random Forest and Gradient Boosting. Also I touch upon Unsupervised Learning, specifically PCA and K-Means. As before the presentation does not include any math or programming. The presentation can be seen below


The implementations of all the discussed algorithm are are available in my book which is available on Amazon My book ‘Practical Machine Learning with R and Python’ on Amazon
