Written by three experts in the field Deep Learning is the only comprehensive book on the subject -- Elon Musk cochair of OpenAI cofounder and CEO of Tesla and SpaceXDeep learning is a form of machine learning that enables computers to learn from experience and understand the world in terms of a hierarchy of concepts Because the computer gathers knowledge from experience there is no need for a human computer operator to formally specify all the knowledge that the computer needs The hierarchy of concepts allows the computer to learn complicated concepts by building them out of simpler ones a graph of these hierarchies would be many layers deep This book introduces a broad range of topics in deep learning The text offers mathematical and conceptual background covering relevant concepts in linear algebra probability theory and information theory numerical computation and machine learning It describes deep learning techniques used by practitioners in industry including deep feedforward networks regularization optimization algorithms convolutional networks sequence modeling and practical methodology and it surveys such applications as natural language processing speech recognition computer vision online recommendation systems... bioinformatics and videogames Finally the book offers research perspectives covering such theoretical topics as linear factor models autoencoders representation learning structured probabilistic models Monte Carlo methods the partition function approximate inference and deep generative models Deep Learning can be used by undergraduate or graduate students planning careers in either industry or research and by software engineers who want to begin using deep learning in their products or platforms A website offers supplementary material for both readers and instructors more
I am not a recruiter I am a software engineer And as such I know what it s like to be asked to whip up brilliant algorithms on the spot and then write flawless code on a whiteboard I ve been through this as a candidate and as an interviewer Cracking the Coding Interview 6th Edition is here to help you through this process teaching you what you need to know and enabling you to perform at your very best I ve coached and interviewed hundreds of software engineers The result is this book Learn how to uncover the hints and hidden details in a question discover how to break down a problem into manageable chunks develop techniques to unstick yourself when stuck learn or re-learn core computer science concepts and practice on 189 interview questions and solutions These interview questions are real they are not pulled out of computer science textbooks They reflect what s truly being asked at the top companies so that you can be as prepared as possible WHAT S INSIDE 189 programming interview questions ranging from the basics to the trickiest algorithm problems A walk-through of how to derive each solution so that you can learn how to get there yourself Hints on how to solve each of the 189 questions just like what you would get in a real... interview Five proven strategies to tackle algorithm questions so that you can solve questions you haven t seen Extensive coverage of essential topics such as big O time data structures and core algorithms A behind the scenes look at how top companies like Google and Facebook hire developers Techniques to prepare for and ace the soft side of the interview behavioral questions For interviewers and companies details on what makes a good interview question and hiring process more
Some books on algorithms are rigorous but incomplete others cover masses of material but lack rigor Introduction to Algorithms uniquely combines rigor and comprehensiveness The book covers a broad range of algorithms in depth yet makes their design and analysis accessible to all levels of readers Each chapter is relatively self-contained and can be used as a unit of study The algorithms are described in English and in a pseudocode designed to be readable by anyone who has done a little programming The explanations have been kept elementary without sacrificing depth of coverage or mathematical rigor The first edition became a widely used text in universities worldwide as well as the standard reference for professionals The second edition featured new chapters on the role of algorithms probabilistic analysis and randomized algorithms and linear programming The third edition has been revised and updated throughout It includes two completely new chapters on van Emde Boas trees and multithreaded algorithms substantial additions to the chapter on recurrence now called Divide-and-Conquer and an appendix on matrices It features improved treatment of dynamic programming and greedy algorithms and a new notion of edge-based flow in the... material on flow networks Many new exercises and problems have been added for this edition As of the third edition this textbook is published exclusively by the MIT Press more
