Machine learning gains the popularity not because it is done with a particular language or technique, it appeals everyone due to the ease it brings to everyone's life. It makes data much more accessible and simpler to understand and gain hidden insights from data.
This book focuses on exploring all the Machine Learning techniques and some specific behavioral differences or implementation intricacies with the parallel or distributed processing approach. For each technique along with a deep dive on internals of each algorithm, example implementations using top and evolving machine learning frameworks and tools like R, SPSS, Python, Scala, Julia and Spark.
This book helps readers master Machine Learning techniques and gain ability to identify and apply appropriate techniques in the given problem context. In the context of large datasets, multi-core cluster based learning, distributed learning, parallel computation tools and libraries and more. Readers will be exposed to a list of machine learning frameworks and for each of the frameworks detailed implementation aspects like function libraries, syntax, installation or set-up and integration with Hadoop and Spark. The book also explores cutting-edge advances in machine learning, with worked examples and guidance on deep learning-TensorFlow and Keras-- and reinforcement learning, providing you with practical demonstrations and samples that help take the theory-and-mystery out of even the most advanced machine learning methodologies.
