A comprehensive introduction to the most important machine learning approaches used in predictive data analytics, covering both theoretical concepts and practical applications.
Machine learning is often used to build predictive models by extracting patterns from large datasets. These models are used in predictive data analytics applications including price prediction, risk assessment, predicting customer behavior, and document classification. This introductory textbook offers a detailed and focused treatment of the most important machine learning approaches used in predictive data analytics, covering both theoretical concepts and practical applications. Technical and mathematical material is augmented with explanatory worked examples, and case studies illustrate the application of these models in the broader business context.
After discussing the trajectory from data to insight to decision, the book describes four approaches to machine learning: information-based learning, similarity-based learning, probability-based learning, and error-based learning. Each of these approaches is introduced by a nontechnical explanation of the underlying concept, followed by mathematical models and algorithms illustrated by detailed worked examples. Finally, the book considers techniques for evaluating prediction models and offers two case studies that describe specific data analytics projects through each phase of development, from formulating the business problem to implementation of the analytics solution. The book, informed by the authors' many years of teaching machine learning, and working on predictive data analytics projects, is suitable for use by undergraduates in computer science, engineering, mathematics, or statistics; by graduate students in disciplines with applications for predictive data analytics; and as a reference for professionals.
Описание: The tenth edition of Llewellyn-Jones Fundamentals of Obstetrics and Gynaecology carries on the mission of Derek Llewellyn-Jones (encapsulated in the first edition of this book, published in 1969) to support the WHO's target to ensure women worldwide have good healthcare, safe deliveries and healthy children. In his words: 'It is our hope to continue to meet the needs of today's medical students and students of nursing and midwifery; and to encourage self-learning skills while providing essential information in a readable manner'. Intervention rates continue to climb; women in the developed world embark on pregnancy later in life and with more complex medical disorders.
The need to know and apply the best available standards of care is ever more critical. The tenth edition brings this highly regarded book completely up to date whilst retaining its characteristic concision and readability. New to this edition: Now on StudentConsult New ultrasounds New material covering: Diabetes and obesity in pregnancy Advances in IVF Complications arising for older first-time mothers Highly illustrated in full colour throughout Totally revised

Описание: Significant progress is made in the theory and applications of pharmacodynamics of antimicrobial agents. This book is a reference on the application of pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic principles for the optimization of antimicrobial therapy, namely pharmacotherapy, and infectious diseases.
Описание: One of the foundations of chemical engineering is built upon transport phenomena. This text provides a unified treatment of heat, mass, and momentum transport based on a balance equation approach. It builds upon the balance equation description of diffusive transport by introducing convective transport terms.

Описание: This book introduces a comprehensive overview on the fundamentals of environmental sampling and analysis for students in environmental science and engineering as well as environmental professionals in sampling and analytical work. This book presents a know why rather than a know how strategy. It details fundamentals of sampling, selection of standard methods, chemical and instrumental principles, and method applications to particular contaminants. The book gives an integrated introduction to sampling and analysis essential to quality environmental data. For example, contrary to other books that introduce a specific area of sampling and analysis, this text provides a balanced mix of field sampling and laboratory analysis, essential knowledge in chemistry, statistics, hydrology, wet chemical methods for conventional chemicals as well as various modern instrumental techniques for contaminants of emerging concerns.
Описание: Uses a laboratory perspective to provide you with the chemistry fundamentals you need to work in a real-world, clinical lab. This title includes accurate chemical structures to explain the key chemical features of relevant molecules.
