Learning from Data: Concepts, Theory, and Methods / Edition 1by Vladimir Cherkassky, Filip M. Mulier
Pub. Date: 03/28/1998
An interdisciplinary framework for learning methodologiescovering statistics, neural networks, and fuzzy logic This book provides a unified treatment of the principles and methods for learning dependencies from data. It establishes a general conceptual framework in which various learning methods from statistics, neural networks, and fuzzy logic can be appliedshowing that a few fundamental principles underlie most new methods being proposed today in statistics, engineering, and computer science. Complete with over one hundred illustrations, case studies, and examples, Learning from Data:
*Relates statistical formulation with the latest methodologies used in artificial neural networks, fuzzy systems, and wavelets
*Features consistent terminology, chapter summaries, and practical research tips
*Emphasizes the conceptual framework provided by Statistical Learning Theory (VC-theory) rather than its commonly practiced mathematical aspects
*Provides a detailed description of the new learning methodology called Support Vector Machines (SVM)This invaluable text/reference accommodates both beginning and advanced graduate students in engineering, computer science, and statistics. It is also indispensable for researchers and practitioners in these areas who must understand the principles and methods for learning dependencies from data.
