The fundamental mathematical tools needed to understand machine learning include linear algebra, analytic geometry, matrix decompositions, vector calculus, optimization, probability, and statistics. These topics are traditionally taught in disparate courses, making it hard for data science or computer science students or professionals to learn mathematics efficiently. This self contained textbook bridges the gap between mathematical and machine learning texts, introducing the mathematical concepts with a minimum of prerequisites.
Gareth James, Daniela Witten, Trevor Hastie, Robert Tibshirani, Jonathan Taylor
An Introduction to Statistical Learning provides a broad and less technical treatment of key topics in statistical learning. This book is appropriate for anyone who wishes to use contemporary tools for data analysis.
Jerome H. Friedman, Robert Tibshirani, and Trevor Hastie
This book describes the important ideas in a variety of fields, such as medicine, biology, finance, and marketing, in a common conceptual framework. While the approach is statistical, the emphasis is on concepts rather than mathematics. Many examples are given, with liberal use of color graphics.
Kevin Patrick Murphy
This book offers a detailed and up-to-date introduction to machine learning (including deep learning) through the unifying lens of probabilistic modeling and Bayesian decision theory.
Kevin Patrick Murphy
An advanced counterpart to Probabilistic Machine Learning: An Introduction, this high-level textbook provides researchers and graduate students detailed coverage of cutting-edge topics in machine learning, including deep generative modeling, graphical models, Bayesian inference, reinforcement learning, and causality.
Shai Shalev-Shwartz and Shai Ben-David
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.

This open-access book presents the first comprehensive overview of general methods in Automated Machine Learning (AutoML), collects descriptions of existing systems based on these methods, and discusses the first series of international challenges of AutoML systems.
Uday Kamath, Kenneth Graham, Mitchell Naylor
This book is designed to help anyone along the spectrum of experience with causal inference – nearly everyone, from absolute beginners to experienced users of causality, will be able to learn something about the world of causal inference and how it can be applied.
Richard S. Sutton and Andrew G. Barto
In Reinforcement Learning, Richard Sutton and Andrew Barto provide a clear and simple account of the field's key ideas and algorithms. This second edition has been significantly expanded and updated, presenting new topics and updating coverage of other topics.
Burkov has undertaken a very useful but impossibly hard task in reducing all of machine learning to 100 pages. He succeeds well in choosing the topics — both theory and practice — that will be useful to practitioners, and for the reader who understands that this is the first 100 (or actually 150) pages you will read, not the last, provides a solid introduction to the field.
This new book by Andriy Burkov is the most complete applied AI book out there. It is filled with best practices and design patterns for building reliable machine learning solutions that scale.
Steven Bird, Ewan Klein, and Edward Loper
This book offers a highly accessible introduction to natural language processing, the field that supports a variety of language technologies, from predictive text and email filtering to automatic summarization and translation.
Aston Zhang, Zachary C. Lipton, Mu Li, Alexander J. Smola
This book is a comprehensive resource that makes deep learning approachable while still providing sufficient technical depth to enable engineers, scientists, and students to use deep learning in their own work.
The book has been divided into 13 parts originally by Prof. Andrew NG, along with the complete book with all the parts consolidated. In this book, you will learn how to align on ML strategies in a team setting, as well as how to set up development (dev) sets and test sets.
Vishal Maini, Samer Sabri
This guide is intended to be accessible to anyone. Basic concepts in probability, statistics, programming, linear algebra, and calculus will be discussed, but it isn’t necessary to have prior knowledge of them to gain value from this series.
Christopher M. 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. It uses graphical models to describe probability distributions when no other books apply graphical models to machine learning.
Yao Ma and Jiliang Tang
This book covers comprehensive content on developing deep learning techniques for graph-structured data with a specific focus on Graph Neural Networks (GNNs). The foundation of the GNN models is introduced in detail, including the two main building operations: graph filtering and pooling operations.
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 doesn't explain the algorithms but is more oriented towards how and what should you use to solve machine learning and deep learning problems.
Max Kuhn and Kjell Johnson
This book describes techniques for finding the best representations of predictors for modeling and for finding the best subset of predictors for improving model performance.
Bradley Boehmke & Brandon Greenwell
Hands-on Machine Learning with R provides a practical and applied approach to learning and developing intuition into today’s most popular machine learning methods. This book serves as a practitioner’s guide to the machine learning process and is meant to help the reader learn to apply the machine learning stack within R
Deep Learning Interviews: Hundreds of fully solved job interview questions from a wide range of key topics in AI
Shlomo Kashani and Amir Ivry
It is designed to both rehearse interview or exam-specific topics and provide machine learning M.Sc./Ph.D. students and those awaiting an interview with a well-organized overview of the field.
Patrick Hall and Navdeep Gill
To help practitioners make the most of recent and disruptive break‐ throughs in debugging, explainability, fairness, and interpretability techniques for machine learning, this report defines key terms, introduces the human and commercial motivations for the techniques, and discusses predictive modeling and machine learning from an applied perspective, focusing on the common challenges of business adoption, internal model documentation, governance, validation requirements, and external regulatory mandates.
This book covers a range of interpretability methods, from inherently interpretable models to methods that can make any model interpretable, such as SHAP, LIME and permutation feature importance. It also includes interpretation methods specific to deep neural networks and discusses why interpretability is important in machine learning.
Robert E. Schapire, Yoav Freund
An accessible introduction and essential reference for an approach to machine learning that creates highly accurate prediction rules by combining many weak and inaccurate ones.
This presents the problem of where the engineer should start. The answer is often "for a general, but slightly outdated introduction, read this book; for a detailed survey of methods based on probabilistic models, check this reference; to learn about statistical learning, this text is useful" and so on.
Daniel Jurafsky & James Martin
For undergraduate or advanced undergraduate courses in Classical Natural Language Processing, Statistical Natural Language Processing, Speech Recognition, Computational Linguistics, and Human Language Processing.
Simon J.D. Prince
This modern treatment of computer vision focuses on learning and inference in probabilistic models as a unifying theme. It shows how to use training data to learn the relationships between the observed image data and the aspects of the world that we wish to estimate, such as the 3D structure or the object class, and how to exploit these relationships to make new inferences about the world from new image data.
David J. C. MacKay
This textbook introduces theory in tandem with applications. Information theory is taught alongside practical communication systems, such as arithmetic coding for data compression and sparse-graph codes for error-correction.
