Master machine learning techniques using Clojure with Packt’s new book and eBook

May 2014 | Open Source

Packt is pleased to announce the release of its new ebook, Clojure for Machine Learning. Developers will learn how to make use of Clojure’s machine learning techniques in order to handle vast amounts of data, and they will also learn how to build machine learning systems using Clojure libraries.

About the author: Akhil Wali has been working as a software developer for around four years. He is knowledgeable in areas such as programming languages, functional programming, and the analysis and design of algorithms. He currently works at Computer Generated Solutions, Inc. on ERP and BI projects. He has also worked in areas such as text search, real-time collaboration, and parallel data processing.

Clojure for Machine Learning begins with introducing developers to simple machine learning problems such as regression and classification, and explores several machine learning techniques. Readers will also learn how several of these techniques can be used to solve real-world problems. The eBook delves further into making use of Clojure libraries. It also helps readers understand machine learning problems such as regression, classification, and clustering.

Advanced models of machine learning such as clustering, artificial neural networks, and support vector machines are covered in detail. Filled with plenty of examples, each chapter describes the strength of Clojure programming in detail.

Clojure for Machine Learning focuses on the following topics:

Chapter 1: Working with Matrices

Chapter 2: Understanding Linear Regression

Chapter 3: Categorizing Data

Chapter 4: Building Neural Networks

Chapter 5: Selecting and Evaluating Data

Chapter 6: Building Support Vector Machines

Chapter 7: Clustering Data

Chapter 8: Anomaly Detection and Recommendation

Chapter 9: Large-scale Machine Learning

Appendix: References
