A detailed and up-to-date introduction to machine learning, presented through the unifying lens of probabilistic modeling and Bayesian decision theory.

This book offers a detailed and up-to-date introduction to machine learning (including deep learning) through the unifying lens of probabilistic modeling and Bayesian decision theory. The book covers mathematical background (including linear algebra and optimization), basic supervised learning (including linear and logistic regression and deep neural networks), as well as more advanced topics (including transfer learning and unsupervised learning). End-of-chapter exercises allow students to apply what they have learned, and an appendix covers notation.

Probabilistic Machine Learning grew out of the author’s 2012 book, Machine Learning: A Probabilistic Perspective. More than just a simple update, this is a completely new book that reflects the dramatic developments in the field since 2012, most notably deep learning. In addition, the new book is accompanied by online Python code, using libraries such as scikit-learn, JAX, PyTorch, and Tensorflow, which can be used to reproduce nearly all the figures; this code can be run inside a web browser using cloud-based notebooks, and provides a practical complement to the theoretical topics discussed in the book. This introductory text will be followed by a sequel that covers more advanced topics, taking the same probabilistic approach.

Kevin Patrick Murphy was born in Ireland, grew up in England (BA from Cambridge), and went to graduate school in the USA (MEng from U. Penn, PhD from UC Berkeley, Postdoc at Massachusetts Institute of Technology). In 2004, he became a professor of computer science and statistics at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. In 2011, he went to Google in Mountain View, California for his sabbatical. In 2012, he converted to a full-time research scientist position at Google. Kevin has published over 50 papers in refereed conferences and journals related to machine learning and graphical models. He has recently published an 1100-page textbook called “Machine Learning: a Probabilistic Perspective”. Kevin P. Murphy is a Research Scientist at Google in Mountain View, California, where he works on AI, machine learning, computer vision, and natural language understanding.
