1. The Hundred-Page Machine Learning Book
Author: by Andriy Burkov
Published at: Andriy Burkov (January 13, 2019)
Peter Norvig, Research Director at Google, co-author of AIMA, the most popular AI textbook in the world: “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.”Aurlien Gron, Senior AI Engineer, author of the bestseller Hands-On Machine Learning with Scikit-Learn and TensorFlow: “The breadth of topics the book covers is amazing for just 100 pages (plus few bonus pages!.
Burkov doesn’t hesitate to go into the math equations: that’s one thing that short books usually drop. I really liked how the author explains the core concepts in just a few words. The book can be very useful for newcomers in the field, as well as for old-timers who can gain from such a broad view of the field.”Karolis Urbonas, Head of Data Science at Amazon: “A great introduction to machine learning from a world-class practitioner.”Chao Han, VP, Head of R&D at Lucidworks: “I wish such a book existed when I was a statistics graduate student trying to learn about machine learning.”Sujeet Varakhedi, Head of Engineering at eBay: “Andriy’s book does a fantastic job of cutting the noise and hitting the tracks and full speed from the first page.”Deepak Agarwal, VP of Artificial Intelligence at LinkedIn: “A wonderful book for engineers who want to incorporate ML in their day-to-day work without necessarily spending an enormous amount of time.”Vincent Pollet, Head of Research at Nuance: “The Hundred-Page Machine Learning Book is an excellent read to get started with Machine Learning.”Gareth James, Professor of Data Sciences and Operations, co-author of the bestseller An Introduction to Statistical Learning, with Applications in R: “This is a compact how to do data science manual and I predict it will become a go-to resource for academics and practitioners alike.

No previous knowledge in computer science, mathematics, programming, or cryptography is required. Terminology is explained through pictures, analogies, and metaphors.
This book bridges the gap that exists between purely technical books about the blockchain and purely business-focused books. It does so by explaining both the technical concepts that make up the blockchain and their role in business-relevant applications. What You’ll LearnWhat the blockchain isWhy it is needed and what problem it solvesWhy there is so much excitement about the blockchain and its potentialMajor components and their purposeHow various components of the blockchain work and interactLimitations, why they exist, and what has been done to overcome themMajor application scenariosWho This Book Is For Everyone who wants to get a general idea of what blockchain technology is, how it works, and how it will potentially change the financial system as we know it.
4. Machine Learning Engineering
Author: by Andriy Burkov
Published at: True Positive Inc. (September 5, 2020)
From the author of a world bestseller published in eleven languages, The Hundred-Page Machine Learning Book, this new book by Andriy Burkov is the most complete applied AI book out there. It is filled with best practices and design patterns of building reliable machine learning solutions that scale.
Andriy Burkov has a Ph.D. In AI and is the leader of a machine learning team at Gartner. This book is based on Andriy’s own 15 years of experience in solving problems with AI as well as on the published experience of the industry leaders.
Here’s what Cassie Kozyrkov, Chief Decision Scientist at Google tells about the book in the Foreword:”You’re looking at one of the few true Applied Machine Learning books out there. That’s right, you found one! A real applied needle in the haystack of research-oriented stuff.
Excellent job, dear reader… Unless what you were actually looking for is a book to help you learn the skills to design general-purpose algorithms, in which case I hope the author won’t be too upset with me for telling you to flee now and go pick up pretty much any other machine learning book.
5. The Master Algorithm: How the Quest for the Ultimate Learning Machine Will Remake Our World
Author: by Pedro Domingos
Published at: Basic Books; Reprint edition (February 13, 2018)
A thought-provoking and wide-ranging exploration of machine learning and the race to build computer intelligences as flexible as our ownIn the world’s top research labs and universities, the race is on to invent the ultimate learning algorithm: one capable of discovering any knowledge from data, and doing anything we want, before we even ask.
In The Master Algorithm, Pedro Domingos lifts the veil to give us a peek inside the learning machines that power Google, Amazon, and your smartphone. He assembles a blueprint for the future universal learner-the Master Algorithm-and discusses what it will mean for business, science, and society.
If data-ism is today’s philosophy, this book is its bible.
