Below is the Table of Contents for the new book “Machine Learning for Hackers” by Drew Conway & John Miles White. Drew is a long time friend of this blog and we are very excited about his new book. My copy just arrived and I will be working through the book this summer (for potential inclusion in the 2013 edition of my Quantitative Methods for Lawyers Course and/or E-Discovery Course).
Here is the description: “Each chapter focuses on a specific problem in machine learning, such as classification, prediction, optimization, and recommendation. Using the R programming language, you’ll learn how to analyze sample datasets and write simple machine learning algorithms. Machine Learning for Hackers is ideal for programmers from any background, including business, government, and academic research.” Check it out!
