Prediction Machines: The Simple Economics of Artificial Intelligence Hardcover – April 17, 2018

'Compared with the amount of ink spilled over the prospects of artificial general intelligence and all its accompanying fears--the singularity!--there's been much less attention to the smaller changes already happening in the realm of A.I.

-- The New York Times'…a readily understandable guide to artificial intelligence and the immensely consequential effects it could have on our economy, our society and our political system.'

Steeped in both economics and AI/ML, this book steers clear of hype (or anti-hype), applying standard economic concepts to a rapidly emerging phenomenon.

Taking a grounded, realistic perspective on the technology, the book uses principles of economics and strategy to understand how firms, industries, and management will be transformed by AI.'Dominic Barton, Global Managing Partner, McKinsey & Company--'Prediction Machines achieves a feat as welcome as it is unique: a crisp, readable survey of where artificial intelligence is taking us separates hype from reality, while delivering a steady stream of fresh insights.

Must Read Books for Beginners on Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence

The power to run tasks in automated manner, the power to make our lives comfrotable, the power to improve things continuously by studying decisions at large sacle .

We’re in the early days, but you’ll see us in a systematic way think about how we can apply machine learning to all these areas.’

When Elon Musk, the busiest man of planet right now, was asked about his secret of success, he replied, ‘I used to read books.

The motive of this article is not to promote any particular book, but you make you aware of a world which exists beyond video tutorials, blogs and podcasts.

Programming Collective Intelligence, PCI as it is popularly known, is one of the best books to start learning machine learning. If there is one book to choose on machine learning – it is this one.

The book was written long before data science and machine learning acquired the cult status they have today – but the topics and chapters are entirely relevant even today!

Some of the topics covered in the book are collaborative filtering techniques, search engine features, Bayesian filtering and Support vector machines. If you don’t have a copy of this book – order it as soon as you finish reading this article! The book uses Python to deliver machine learning in a fascinating manner.

It has interesting case studies which will help you to understand the importance of using machine learning algorithms.

This book provides a perfect introduction to machine learning. This book prepares you to understand complex areas of machine learning.

This book serves as a excellent reference for students keen to understand the use of statistical techniques in machine learning and pattern recognition.

More than just providing an overview of artificial intelligence, this book thoroughly covers subjects from search algorithms, reducing problems to search problems, working with logic, planning, and more advanced topics in AI such as reasoning with partial observability, machine learning and language processing.

It teaches basic artificial intelligence algorithms such as dimensionality, distance metrics, clustering, error calculation, hill climbing, Nelder Mead, and linear regression.

It delves deep into the practical aspects of A.I and teaches its readers the method to build and debug robust practical programs.

This books covers topics such as Neural networks, genetic programming, computer vision, heuristic search, knowledge representation and reasoning, Bayes networks and explains them with great ease.

In these books, the authors have not only explained the ML concepts precisely, but also mentioned their perspective and experiences using those concepts, which you would have missed otherwise!
