Machine Learning Yearning Book

Andrew Ng [Co-Founder of Coursera, Stanford Professor, Chief Scientist at Baidu, and All-Around Machine Learning Expert] is writing a book during the summer of 2016. The book is titled, Machine Learning Yearning. It you visit the site and signup quickly you can get draft copies of the chapters as they become available.

Andrew is an excellent teacher. His MOOCs are wildly successful, and I expect his book to be excellent as well.

More Deep Learning Resources

Recently, MIT Technology Review ran an article about the new uses of deep learning at Facebook. Facebook would like to use deep learning to understand more about its users. They have assembled quite a team.

If you are looking to learn more about deep learning, Andrew Ng, cofounder of Coursera, has some course materials on deep learning available on the Stanford Openclassroom site. The materials appear incomplete, but they do provide lectures covering neural networks which are the foundations of deep learning.
