Book Description
Machine learning makes use of computer programs to discover meaningful patters in complex data. It is one of the fastest growing areas of computer science, with farreaching applications. This book explains the principles behind the automated learning approach and the considerations underlying its usage.
The authors explain the "hows" and "whys" of the most important machinelearning algorithms, as well as their inherent strengths and weaknesses, making the field accessible to students and practitioners in computer science, statistics, and engineering.
The aim of this textbook is to introduce machine learning, and the algorithmic paradigms it offers, in a principled way. The book provides an extensive theoretical account of the fundamental ideas underlying machine learning and the mathematical derivations that transform these principles into practical algorithms.

 The Mirror Site (1)  PDF

Foundations of Machine Learning (Mehryar Mohri, et al)
This book is a general introduction to machine learning. It covers fundamental modern topics in machine learning while providing the theoretical basis and conceptual tools needed for the discussion and justification of algorithms.

The HundredPage Machine Learning Book (Andriy Burkov)
Everything you really need to know in Machine Learning in a hundred pages! This book provides a great practical guide to get started and execute on ML within a few days without necessarily knowing much about ML apriori.

Introduction to Statistical Learning: with Applications in Python
This book covers the same materials as Introduction to Statistical Learning: with Applications in R (ISLR) but with labs implemented in Python. These labs will be useful both for Python novices, as well as experienced users.

The Shallow and the Deep: Old School Machine Learning
This book is a collection of lecture notes that offers an accessible introduction to Neural Networks and machine learning in general. The focus lies on classical machine learning techniques, with a bias towards classification and regression.

Financial Machine Learning (Bryan T. Kelly, et al.)
This book is designed for both financial economists interested in grasping machine learning tools, as well as for statisticians and machine learners seeking interesting financial contexts where advanced methods may be deployed.

Distributional Reinforcement Learning (Marc G. Bellemare, et al)
Distributional reinforcement learning is a new mathematical formalism for thinking about decisions. This first comprehensive guide provides a new mathematical formalism for thinking about decisions from a probabilistic perspective.

Machine Learning under Resource Constraints (Katharina Morik)
It provides a comprehensive overview of the novel approaches to machine learning research that consider resource constraints, as well as the application of the described methods in various domains of science and engineering.

An Introduction to Machine Learning Interpretability
Understanding and trusting models and their results is a hallmark of good science. Get an applied perspective on how this applies to machine learning, including fairness, accountability, transparency, and explainable AI.

Machine Learning with Python Tutorial (Bernd Klein)
This practical guide provides helps to solve machine learning challenges you may encounter in your work. Go beyond theory and concepts by learning the nuts and bolts you need to construct working machine learning applications.

Hyperparameter Tuning for Machine Learning: A Practical Guide
This open access book provides a wealth of handson examples that illustrate how hyperparameter tuning can be applied in practice and gives deep insights into the working mechanisms of machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL) methods.

Approaching (Almost) Any Machine Learning Problem
This book is for people who have some theoretical knowledge of machine learning and deep learning and want to dive into applied machine learning. The book is best enjoyed with a cup of coffee and a laptop/workstation where you can code along.
