1. Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach
Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach provides AI algorithm techniques in-detail, from pathfinding to intelligent AI Agent design. If you are looking for one of the best books on A.I, then this is surely a top pick. There is detailed information on building Agents, graph algorithms incl. A* Search, and how to navigate in areas of uncertainty. Great book with lots of content and examples.
2. Deep Learning
Deep Learning is written by a famous ex-Googler, providing a rich and detailed guide into one of A.I’s most exciting sub-fields, “Machine Learning”. This has to be one of the best machine learning books out there at the moment. In this book you will learn about Neural Networks and how to construct them for various use-cases. It’s been backed by our industry thought-leaders such as Elon Musk who has commented on how comphresive this book truly is.
3. Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning (Information Science and Statistics)
Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning (Information Science and Statistics) is a speciality book on the field of pattern recognition. This is a no bs* book that covers scientific topics such as Bayesian methods to build A.I agents. It is a truly an outstanding book for it’s time,and first published back in 2006.
4. Deep Learning with Python
Deep Learning with Python combines Deep Learning techniques together with the Python programming language. Python is generally the preferred language for building AI models – as it is highly recognised by many large companies and it supports some exceptional A.I libraries such as Tensorflow to construct A.I agents. This book will get you up to speed with building A.I using Deep Learning. Prior knowledge of Python may be advised.
5. The Elements of Statistical Learning: Data Mining, Inference, and Prediction, Second Edition (Springer Series in Statistics)
The Elements of Statistical Learning: Data Mining, Inference, and Prediction, Second Edition (Springer Series in Statistics) might be one of the best books to gain a solid foundation of statistics, which really is the back-bone of many A.I based applications. Stats helps to drive the decision-making process of AI such that smart decisions are made. This book is comphresive and covers Data Mining, Inference, and Prediction – all relevant and highly applicable today.
Thanks for reading!
