It is common wisdom that gathering a variety of views and inputs improves the process of decision making, and, indeed, underpins a democratic society. Dubbed ensemble learning by researchers in computational intelligence and machine learning, it is known to improve a decision systems robustness and accuracy. Now, fresh developments are allowing researchers to unleash the power of ensemble learning in an increasing range of real-world applications. Ensemble learning algorithms such as boosting and random forest facilitate solutions to key computational issues such as face recognition and are now being applied in areas as diverse as object tracking and bioinformatics.Responding to a shortage of literature dedicated to the topic, this volume offers comprehensive coverage of state-of-the-art ensemble learning techniques, including the random forest skeleton tracking algorithm in the Xbox Kinect sensor, which bypasses the need for game controllers. At once a solid theoretical study and a practical guide, the volume is a windfall for researchers and practitioners alike.
Machine Learning in Python
Incorporating machine learning in your applications is becoming essential. As a programmer this book is the ideal introduction to scikit-learn for your Python environment, taking your skills to a whole new level. Overview Use Python and scikit-learn to create intelligent applications Apply regression techniques to predict future behaviour and learn to cluster items in groups by their similarities Make use of classification techniques to perform image recognition and document classification In Detail Machine learning, the art of creating applications that learn from experience and data, has been around for many years. However, in the era of big data, huge amounts of information is being generated. This makes machine learning an unavoidable source o...
The interplay between optimization and machine learning is one of the most important developments in modern computational science. Optimization formulations and methods are proving to be vital in designing algorithms to extract essential knowledge from huge volumes of data. Machine learning, however, is not simply a consumer of optimization technology but a rapidly evolving field that is itself generating new optimization ideas. This book captures the state of the art of the interaction between optimization and machine learning in a way that is accessible to researchers in both fields.Optimization approaches have enjoyed prominence in machine learning because of their wide applicability and attractive theoretical properties. The increasing complexity...
Practical Machine Learning Tools and Techniques
As with any burgeoning technology that enjoys commercial attention, the use of data mining is surrounded by a great deal of hype. Exaggerated reports tell of secrets that can be uncovered by setting algorithms loose on oceans of data. But there is no magic in machine learning, no hidden power, no alchemy. Instead there is an identifiable body of practical techniques that can extract useful information from raw data. This book describes these techniques and shows how they work. The book is a major revision of the first edition that appeared in 1999. While the basic core remains the same, it has been updated to reflect the changes that have taken place o...
