CHAPTER 6

Implementations: Real Machine Learning Schemes

We have seen the basic ideas of several machine learning methods and studied in detail how to assess their performance on practical data mining problems. Now we are well prepared to look at real, industrial-strength, machine learning algorithms. Our aim is to explain these algorithms both at a conceptual level and with a fair amount of technical detail so that you can understand them fully and appreciate the key implementation issues that arise.

In truth, there is a world of difference between the simplistic methods described in Chapter 4 and the actual algorithms that are widely used in practice. The principles are the same. So are the inputs and outputs—methods of knowledge representation. ...
