Adaptive Computation and Machine Learning. Cambridge, MA: MIT Press (ISBN 978-0-262-03561-3/hbk; 978-0-262-33743-4/ebook). xxii, 775 p. (2016).
The book presents solutions to intuitive problems, that is, problems that people solve intuitively, and that feel automatic, but are hard to be described. Deep learning solves the central problem in representation learning by introducing representations based on simpler ones. The text offers the mathematical and machine learning background needed to understand the concepts and techniques related to deep learning. The book is useful for undergraduate and graduate university students studying machine learning, and for software engineers working in domains requiring statistics and machine learning.
