Great overview of machine learning
Reviewed in the United States on January 26, 2019
The "Hundred-Page Machine Learning Book" by Andriy Burkov, is in my opinion the best book for those working with machine learning libraries but don't have an understanding of the underlying science behind the libraries. I am a machine learning scientist/ engineer and often get asked what is the difference between what I do and what someone that just applies libraries are. This book explains it in a very down to earth way. Yes in this book there is some math used, nothing too excessive and should be easy for anyone with some mathematical experience to grasp.
The best part of the book I have to say is that it gives the introduction that I think so many need in understanding that a simple ML library and a coder are not going to present the answers to the questions being asked. If there is a simple question with a clean dataset, then yes someone with some tech knowledge will be able to grab a ML library and come to a conclusion. For a more in-depth question with a messy dataset or when the basic libraries don't cover the problem someone with more in-depth knowledge of the science is needed. Thank you Andriy Burkov for writing this amazing book.
