Free #MachineLearning eBooks:  #abdsc #BigData #DataScience via @eelrekab

  • Machine learning is one of the fastest growing areas of computer science, with far-reaching applications.
  • The aim of this textbook is to introduce machine learning, and the algorithmic paradigms it offers, in a principled way.
  • The book provides an extensive theoretical account of the fundamental ideas underlying machine learning and the mathematical derivations that transform these principles into practical algorithms.
  • These include a discussion of the computational complexity of learning and the concepts of convexity and stability; important algorithmic paradigms including stochastic gradient descent, neural networks, and structured output learning; and emerging theoretical concepts such as the PAC-Bayes approach and compression-based bounds.
  • Designed for an advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate course, the text makes the fundamentals and algorithms of machine learning accessible to students and non-expert readers in statistics, computer science, mathematics, and engineering.

Here are three eBooks available for free.

Plotting Earthquakes with D3.js + Leaflet

Plotting Earthquakes with D3.js + Leaflet  #MachineLearning #DataScience

  • The visualization showed significant earthquakes around the world since 1900s.
  • The attribute contains all of the characteristic of our geographic data.
  • Using geoPandas only involved declaring that the data were a geoPandas data frame.
  • Last time, I wrote about how folium allows us to seamlessly integrate leaflet maps for visualization.
  • In the last post , I used Folium to make a visualization of earthquakes around the world.

Last time, I wrote about how folium allows us to seamlessly integrate leaflet maps for visualization. This time, I wanted to challenge myself a bit more. I d…

Using Machine Learning to Detect Malicious URLs

#ICYMI Using #MachineLearning to Detect Malicious URLs  #security

  • Now that we have the data in our list, we have to vectorize our URLs.
  • KDnuggets Home > News > 2016 > Oct > Opinions, Interviews > Using Machine Learning to Detect Malicious URLs ( 16:n39 )
  • I wrote my own tokenizer function for this since URLs are not like some other document text.
  • Unfortunately or fortunately, there has been little work done on security with machine learning algorithms.
  • The data and code is available at Github .


This is a write-up of an experiment employing a machine learning model to identify malicious URLs. The author provides a link to the code for you to try yourself.
