商品描述

Deep Learning: Foundations and Concepts aims to offer both newcomers to machine learning and those already experienced in the field a comprehensive grasp of fundamental ideas underpinning deep learning. Covering key concepts related to contemporary deep learning architectures and techniques, this essential book will equip readers with a robust foundation for potential future specialization. The field of deep learning is undergoing rapid evolution. Rather than summarizing the latest research developments, Bishop distills the key ideas in order to ensure that the foundations and concepts presented in this book will endure the test of time.

For enhanced accessibility, the book is organized into numerous bite-sized chapters, each exploring a distinct topic. The narrative follows a linear progression, with each chapter building upon content from its predecessors. This structure lends itself effectively to teaching a two-semester undergraduate or postgraduate machine learning course, while remaining equally relevant to those engaged in active research or in self-study.

 

To fully grasp machine learning, a certain level of mathematical understanding is required. The book provides a self-contained introduction to probability theory, and includes appendices summarizing useful results in linear algebra, calculus of variations, and Lagrange multipliers. However, the focus of the book is on conveying a clear understanding of ideas rather than mathematical rigor, with emphasis on real-world practical value of techniques rather than abstract theory. Complex concepts are presented from multiple perspectives including textual descriptions, diagrams, mathematical formulae, and pseudo-code to cater to readers from diverse backgrounds.

 

This book can be viewed as a successor to Neural Networks for Pattern Recognition (Bishop, 1995a) which provided the first comprehensive treatment of neural networks from a statistical perspective. It can be considered as a companion volume to Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning (Bishop, 2006) which covered a broader range of topics in machine learning but predates the deep learning revolution.

 

 

 

商品描述(中文翻譯)

《深度學習:基礎與概念》旨在為機器學習的新手和有經驗的專業人士提供對深度學習基本概念的全面理解。本書涵蓋了與當代深度學習架構和技術相關的關鍵概念,將為讀者提供堅實的基礎,以便未來可能的專業化。深度學習領域正在快速發展。Bishop在本書中提煉了關鍵思想,而不是總結最新的研究進展,以確保本書所呈現的基礎和概念能夠經受住時間的考驗。

為了提高可讀性,本書分為多個小章節,每個章節探討一個獨立的主題。敘述遵循線性進展,每個章節都建立在前一章節的內容基礎上。這種結構非常適合教授為期兩個學期的本科或研究生機器學習課程,同時對於從事主動研究或自學的人士也同樣具有相關性。

要完全理解機器學習,需要一定程度的數學理解。本書提供了自包含的概率論介紹,並包含附錄摘要,概述了線性代數、變分計算和拉格朗日乘數法的有用結果。然而,本書的重點在於傳達對思想的清晰理解,而不是數學嚴謹性,強調技術的實際價值而不是抽象理論。複雜的概念以多個角度呈現,包括文字描述、圖表、數學公式和偽代碼,以滿足不同背景的讀者需求。

本書可以視為《模式識別的神經網絡》(Bishop, 1995a)的續集,該書從統計角度首次全面介紹了神經網絡。它也可以被視為《模式識別和機器學習》(Bishop, 2006)的伴侶卷,該書涵蓋了更廣泛的機器學習主題,但是在深度學習革命之前出版。

作者簡介

Chris Bishop is a Technical Fellow at Microsoft and is the Director of Microsoft Research AI4Science. He is a Fellow of Darwin College, Cambridge, a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of London. He is a keen advocate of public engagement in science, and in 2008 he delivered the prestigious Royal Institution Christmas Lectures, established in 1825 by Michael Faraday, and broadcast on prime-time national television. Chris was a founding member of the UK AI Council and was also appointed to the Prime Minister's Council for Science and Technology.

Hugh Bishop is an Applied Scientist at Wayve, an end-to-end deep learning based autonomous driving company in London, where he designs and trains deep neural networks. Before working at Wayve, he completed his MPhil in Machine Learning and Machine Intelligence in the engineering department at Cambridge University. Hugh also holds an MEng in Computer Science from the University of Durham, where he focused his projects on deep learning. During his studies, he also worked as an intern at FiveAI, another autonomous driving company in the UK, and as a Research Assistant, producing educational interactive iPython notebooks for machine learning courses at Cambridge University.
