Continuing on the same track, today we have got a list of best of the books that can be referred blindly for taking onto modern technological inventions like, Big Data Analytics, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence.
So, here we go,
1) The Art of Data Science
The famous book by Roger D Peng and Elizabeth Matsui, emphasizes on the analysis and distillation of data, the book has very best of it and offers a good platform for data practitioners and specialists. The book has it all that is needed to initiate the process of analyzing the data. Both of the authors have penned down their own experiences of dealing with tremendous data size and types, which surely gives a practical approach to readers.
2) The Data Science Handbook
This book comprises of compilations of discussions with 25 data scientists, where they have shared their respective expertise, visions, stories, and recommendations. Specifically, the book is not for technical readings, but the personal sharing of those scientists surely helps to light up the vision of readers. The dynamic data science aspirants may consider this book for initial career guidelines.
3) Machine Learning Yearning
The well-known and widely acclaimed author of the book, Andrew Ng has his own innovative thinking ways. According to him, the book’s motto is to “communicate in what way to make abundant choices that are required for systematizing a machine learning project. He added that he wanted to help readers to quickly gain some vital skills that can empower them to become better at building such high-end AI systems.
4) Machine Learning: The New AI
The author Ethem Alpaydin is a well-known researcher and writer.
