Book Description
Learning and Intelligent Optimization (LION) is the combination of learning from data and optimization applied to solve complex and dynamic problems. The LION way is about increasing the automation level and connecting data directly to decisions and actions. More power is directly in the hands of decision makers in a selfservice manner, without resorting to intermediate layers of data scientists.
LION is a complex array of mechanisms, like the engine in an automobile, but the user (driver) does not need to know the inner workings of the engine in order to realize its tremendous benefits. LION's adoption will create a prairie fire of innovation which will reach most businesses in the next decades. Businesses, like plants in wildfireprone ecosystems, will survive and prosper by adapting and embracing LION techniques, or they risk being transformed from giant trees to ashes by the spreading competition.
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.
About the Authors Roberto Battiti combines research and teaching in machine learning and optimization with a passion for startups and realworld applications. He received the Laurea from the University of Trento and the Ph. D. degree from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), USA, in 1990. He is full professor of Computer Science and director of the LION lab for machine Learning and Intelligent OptimizatioN. He is a Fellow of the IEEE (class of 2009).

Convex Optimization for Machine Learning (Changho Suh)
This book covers an introduction to convex optimization, one of the powerful and tractable optimization problems that can be efficiently solved on a computer. The goal is to help develop a sense of what convex optimization is, and how it can be used.

Introduction to Online Convex Optimization (Elad Hazan)
This book presents a robust machine learning approach that contains elements of mathematical optimization, game theory, and learning theory: an optimization method that learns from experience as more aspects of the problem are observed.

Probabilistic Machine Learning: An Introduction (Kevin Murphy)
This book is a comprehensive introduction to machine learning that uses probabilistic models and inference as a unifying approach. It is written in an informal, accessible style, complete with pseudocode for the most important algorithms.

Mathematics for Machine Learning (Marc P. Deisenroth, et al.)
This self contained textbook bridges the gap between mathematical and machine learning texts, introducing the mathematical concepts with a minimum of prerequisites. It provides a beautiful exposition of the mathematics underpinning modern machine learning.

Artificial Intelligence: Foundations of Computational Agents
This text is a modern and coherent introduction to the field of Artificial Intelligence that uses rational computational agents and logic as unifying threads in this vast field. Many fully worked out examples, expanded coverage on machine learning material, etc.

On the Path to AI: Foundations of the Machine Learning Age
This book explores machine learning and its impact on how we make sense of the world. It introduces readers to the key concepts of machine learning, discusses the potential applications and limitations of predictions generated by machines using data.

Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning (Christopher Bishop)
This is the first textbook on pattern recognition to present the Bayesian viewpoint. The book presents approximate inference algorithms that permit fast approximate answers in situations where exact answers are not feasible.

Gaussian Processes for Machine Learning (Carl E. Rasmussen)
This book provides a longneeded systematic and unified treatment of theoretical and practical aspects of Gaussian Processes (GPs) in machine learning. It deals with the supervisedlearning problem for both regression and classification.

Global Optimization Algorithms  Theory and Application
This book is devoted to global optimization algorithms, which are methods to find optimal solutions for given problems. It especially focuses on Evolutionary Computation by discussing evolutionary algorithms, genetic algorithms, Genetic Programming, etc.

Fundamental Engineering Optimization Methods (Kamran Iqbal)
This bookcovers the fundamentals of commonly used optimization methods in engineering design. These include graphical optimization, linear and nonlinear programming, numerical optimization, and discrete optimization.
