Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"In this book, we find many ways of representing machine learning from different fields, including active learning, algorithmic learning, case-based learning, classifier systems, clustering algorithms, decision-tree learning, inductive inference, kernel methods, knowledge discovery, multiple-instance learning, reinforcement learning, statistical learning, and support vector machines. Most of the current issues in machine learning research are discussed. . I strongly recommend this book for all researchers interested in the very best of machine learning studies."
