Introducing Machine Learning (Microsoft Press)
Wednesday, 11 March 2020

This book delivers practical knowledge to make the most of the opportunities offered by machine learning. Authors Dino and Francesco Esposito start with a quick overview of the foundations of artificial intelligence and the basic steps of any machine learning project. Next, they introduce Microsoft’s ML.NET library, including capabilities for data processing, training, and evaluation. They present families of algorithms that can be trained to solve real-life problems, as well as deep learning techniques utilizing neural networks and conclude by introducing runtime services available through the Azure cloud platform and consider the long-term business vision for machine learning.
