Our machine learning book, The Foundations of Machine Learning, is now published! The book, with authors from both Google Research and academia, covers a large variety of fundamental machine learning topics in depth, including the theoretical basis of many learning algorithms and key aspects of their applications. The material presented takes its origin in a machine learning graduate course, "Foundations of Machine Learning", taught by Mehryar Mohri over the past seven years and has considerably benefited from comments and suggestions from students and colleagues at Google.
The book can serve as a textbook for both graduate students and advanced undergraduate students and a reference manual for researchers in machine learning, statistics, and many other related areas. It includes as a supplement introductory material to topics such as linear algebra and optimization and other useful conceptual tools, as well as a large number of exercises at the end of each chapter whose full solutions are provided online.
