Bayesian Reasoning and Machine Learning

We live in a world that is rich in data, ever increasing in scale. This data comes from many di erent sources in science (bioinformatics, astronomy, physics, environmental monitoring) and commerce (customer databases, nancial transactions, engine monitoring, speech recognition, surveillance, search). Possessing the knowledge as to how to process and extract value from such data is therefore a key and increasingly important skill. Our society also expects ultimately to be able to engage with computers in a natural manner so that computers can `talk' to humans, `understand' what they say and `comprehend' the visual world around them. These are dicult large-scale information processing tasks and represent grand challenges for computer science and related elds. Similarly, there is a desire to control increasingly complex systems, possibly containing many interacting parts, such as in robotics and autonomous navigation. Successfully mastering such systems requires an understanding of the processes underlying their behaviour. Processing and making sense of such large amounts of data from complex systems is therefore a pressing modern day concern and will likely remain so for the foreseeable future.

Machine learning methods extract value from vast data sets quickly and with modest resources. They are established tools in a wide range of industrial applications, including search engines, DNA sequencing, stock market analysis, and robot locomotion, and their use is spreading rapidly. People who know the methods have their choice of rewarding jobs. This hands-on text opens these opportunities to computer science students with modest mathematical backgrounds. It is designed for final-year undergraduates and master's students with limited background in linear algebra and calculus. Comprehensive and coherent, it develops everything from basic reasoning to advanced techniques within the framework of graphical models. Students learn more than a menu of techniques, they develop analytical and problem-solving skills that equip them for the real world. Numerous examples and exercises, both computer based and theoretical, are included in every chapter. Resources for students and instructors, including a MATLAB toolbox, are available online.

Testing IT: An Off-the-Shelf Software Testing Process
Testing IT: An Off-the-Shelf Software Testing Process

Why is astronomy considered a science while astrology is considered only a pseudoscience? In other words, how can we prove that a theory faithfully describes reality, and that this theory can then be used to predict unknown facts? Karl Popper, the well-known philosopher, studied these problems and summarized his conclusions in one...

Human Antibody Therapeutics For Viral Disease (Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology)

Although the utility of human antibodies as medical therapeutics for cancer and immune diseases has been well-established, it is only beginning to be realized for the treatment of viral infectious diseases. Polyclonal immunoglobulins have long been used for some viral diseases, but they have limited potency and disease scope. Only a single...
