## Machine learning books

- Tom Mitchell's book
- Smola & Vishwanathan's book
- Daume's book
- Murphy's book
- Shalev-Shwartz & Ben-David's book
- Nilsson's book
- Harrington's book
- Ian Goodfellow, Yoshua Bengio, and Aaron Courville's book
- Hastie, Tibshirani, and Friedman's book; also James, Witten, Hastie, and Tibshirani's book, which has less focus on mathematical foundations and more on applications (in R).

## Online Machine Learning Resources

- ML course by Stanford computer scientist Andrew Ng (requires Coursera signup --> free enrollment)
- Andrew Ng ML course exercises for Python
- Markov Chains explained visually
- Mo Chen's toolbox for all the methods discussed in the book: Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning by C. Bishop
- arXiv Sanity Preserver, an interface to the machine learning section of arXiv; lists recent papers most discussed in social media, and gives similar paper recommendations.
