It's time to dispel the myth that machine learning is difficult. Grokking Machine Learning teaches you how to apply ML to your projects using only standard Python code and high school-level math. No specialist knowledge is required to tackle the hands-on exercises using readily-available machine learning tools!

about the technology

Machine learning is a collection of mathematically-based techniques and algorithms that enable computers to identify patterns and generate predictions from data. This revolutionary data analysis approach is behind everything from recommendation systems to self-driving cars, and is transforming industries from finance to art. Whatever your field, knowledge of machine learning is becoming an essential skill. Python, along with its libraries like NumPy, Pandas, and scikit-learn, has become the go-to language for machine learning.

about the book

In Grokking Machine Learning, expert machine learning engineer Luis Serrano introduces the most valuable ML techniques and teaches you how to make them work for you. You’ll only need high school math to dive into popular approaches and algorithms. Practical examples illustrate each new concept to ensure you’re grokking as you go. You’ll build models for spam detection, language analysis, and image recognition as you lock in each carefully-selected skill. Packed with easy-to-follow Python-based exercises and mini-projects, this book sets you on the path to becoming a machine learning expert. When you’re done, you’ll have an intuitive understanding of the right approach for any machine learning task or project.

You don't need to be a math genius to understand every lesson in this book!

Valerie Parham-Thompson

This is the book I always wanted to read when I started with ML.

Anonymous Reviewer

The best introduction to Machine Learning that won't labor you with mathematical formulas.

Amit Lamba

A nicely written guided introduction to machine learning, especially apt for those who want to code and understand the content, but feel shaky in their mathematics.

Erik Sapper

The tone is friendly and casual, which is welcoming against the more frequently-seen rigorous textbooks.
