The goal of machine learning is to program computers to use example data or past experience to solve a given problem. Many successful applications of machine learning exist already, including systems that analyze past sales data to predict customer behavior, optimize robot behavior so that a task can be completed using minimum resources, and extract knowledge from bioinformatics data. Introduction to Machine Learning is a comprehensive textbook on the subject, covering a broad array of topics not usually included in introductory machine learning texts. Subjects include supervised learning; Bayesian decision theory; parametric, semi-parametric, and nonparametric methods; multivariate analysis; hidden Markov models; reinforcement learning; kernel machines; graphical models; Bayesian estimation; and statistical testing.
Machine learning is rapidly becoming a skill that computer science students must master before graduation. The third edition of Introduction to Machine Learning reflects this shift, with added support for beginners, including selected solutions for exercises and additional example data sets (with code available online). Other substantial changes include discussions of outlier detection; ranking algorithms for perceptrons and support vector machines; matrix decomposition and spectral methods; distance estimation; new kernel algorithms; deep learning in multilayered perceptrons; and the nonparametric approach to Bayesian methods. All learning algorithms are explained so that students can easily move from the equations in the book to a computer program. The book can be used by both advanced undergraduates and graduate students. It will also be of interest to professionals who are concerned with the application of machine learning methods.

Ethem Alpaydin is a Professor in the Department of Computer Engineering at Bogaziçi University, Istanbul.Review:
Ethem Alpaydin's Introduction to Machine Learning provides a nice blending of the topical coverage of machine learning (à la Tom Mitchell) with formal probabilistic foundations (à la Christopher Bishop). This newly updated version now introduces some of the most recent and important topics in machine learning (e.g., spectral methods, deep learning, and learning to rank) to students and researchers of this critically important and expanding field.(John W. Sheppard, Professor of Computer Science, Montana State University)
I have used Introduction to Machine Learning for several years in my graduate Machine Learning course. The book provides an ideal balance of theory and practice, and with this third edition, extends coverage to many new state-of-the-art algorithms. I look forward to using this edition in my next Machine Learning course.(Larry Holder, Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Washington State University)
This volume is both a complete and accessible introduction to the machine learning world. This is a 'Swiss Army knife' book for this rapidly evolving subject. Although intended as an introduction, it will be useful not only for students but for any professional looking for a comprehensive book in this field. Newcomers will find clearly explained concepts and experts will find a source for new references and ideas.(Hilario Gómez-Moreno, IEEE Senior Member, University of Alcalá, Spain)
