Programming Collective Intelligence: Building Smart Web 2.0 Applications

The explanations are broken up into digestible chunks, and are supported by great visualizations. This manual covers various topics such as filtering techniques which enable online retailers to suggest products, Bayesian filtering for spam filters, numerical value predictions and vector machines to name a few. Each of the algorithms is illustrated with real world application examples, and examples where applying them doesn’t make sense are brought too.

ML is a maths heavy subject, it’s good book if you already know maths behind the stuff. Within each chapter, readers will find exercises that allow algorithms to be extended, allowing for better use of the data that is available on the internet.

That aside, I would have purchased this book this year anyway, and would have reviewed it on this blog too.

Template from James Yu’s Jekyll template This is a personal weblog. The book claims that you don’t need previous Python knowledge to understand the code samples, which I can’t confirm I use Python at my day jobbut I wouldn’t be surprised if not knowing Python could make understanding the code even more difficult I’ve actually learned a few new language features from the samples!

I downloaded source code from here. Could not open http: Also, the Python language has come a long way since 2. Refreshing and advancing my data analytics skills is one of my goals this year, and reading this book was part of the plan. I type in interpreter this code: While I haven’t used math much in my day jobs, I liked and was good at it in high school, including taking extra classes – so I have learned basic statistics.

Some code samples are actually incorrect implementations of the given algorithm and there are antipatterns like string sql concatenation in the code without a warning comment to the reader to remind them it’s a bad practice. The book introduces lots of algorithms that can be used to gain new insight into any kind of data one might come across.

Book Review – Programming Collective Intelligence by Toby Segaran | Do. Reflect. Learn. Repeat!

What am I doing wrong? The exercises at the end of the chapters are applied and not purely theoretical – and collectivve up collectivd exercises from the domain I work with every day was pretty easy! I would love if you would leave a comment – drop me an email at hello zsoldosp.

This book is a delight to read for any beginner in machine learning. Email Required, but never shown. Have doubts regarding this product?

Posted on March 01, at Nonetheless, it is great to have actual code to play with, just the initial reading and reviewing of it requires some extra effort.

This book is essentially a guide that shows readers how to create Web 2. Code examples are given. These codes are described in detail so that they may used immediately on personal blogs, websites or other applications.
