The goal of machine learning is to program computers to use example data or past experience to solve a given problem. Many successful applications of machine learning exist already, including systems that analyze past sales data to predict customer behavior, recognize faces or spoken speech, optimize robot behavior so that a task can be completed using minimum resources, and extract knowledge from bioinformatics data.
Introduction to Machine Learning is a comprehensive textbook on the subject, covering a broad array of topics not usually included in introductory machine learning texts. It discusses many methods based in different fields, including statistics, pattern recognition, neural networks, artificial intelligence, signal processing, control, and data mining, in order to present a unified treatment of machine learning problems and solutions.
All learning algorithms are explained so that the student can easily move from the equations in the book to a computer program.
Introduction to Machine Learning by Ethem Alpaydin
The book can be used by advanced undergraduates and graduate students who have completed courses in computer programming, probability, calculus, and linear introductin. It will also be of interest to engineers in the field who are concerned with the application of machine learning methods. After an introduction that defines machine learning lezrning gives examples of machine learning applications, the book covers supervised learning, Bayesian decision theory, parametric methods, multivariate methods, dimensionality reduction, clustering, nonparametric methods, decision trees, linear discrimination, multilayer perceptrons, local models, hidden Markov models, assessing and comparing classification algorithms, combining multiple learners, and reinforcement learning.
The book is used in the following courses, either as the main textbook, or as a reference book. I will be happy to be told of others. The complete set of figures can be retrieved as a pdf file 2 MB. Instructors using the book are welcome to use these figures in their lecture slides as long as the use is non-commercial and the source is cited.
The following lecture slides pdf and ppt are made available for instructors using the book. Every member of the S-set is consistent with all the instances and there are no consistent hypotheses that are more specific. Similarly, every member of the G-set is consistent with all the instances and there are no consistent hypotheses that are more general.

These two make mwchine the boundary sets and any hypothesis between them is consistent and is part of the version space.
There is an algorithm called candidate elimination that incrementally updates the S- and G-sets as ethm sees training instances one by one. See Mitchell, ; Russell and Norvig; Available as a gzipped tar or compressed zipped folder file for instructors who have adopted the book for course use. The manual contains solutions to exercises and example Matlab programs.
