The book represents my best effort at capturing the part of probability that is necessary and sufficient for an in-depth understanding of machine learning and statistics. It does not cover statistics, which will be described in a later volume. The book is part of the Analysis of Data Project (TAOD), which provides educational material on the area of data analysis.

  • The project features comprehensive coverage of all relevant disciplines including probability, statistics, computing, and machine learning.
  • The content is almost self-contained and includes mathematical prerequisites and basic computing concepts.
  • The R programming language is used to demonstrate the contents. Full code is available, facilitating reproducibility of experiments and letting readers experiment with variations of the code.
  • The presentation is mathematically rigorous, and includes derivations and proofs in most cases.
  • HTML versions are freely available on the website http://theanalysisofdata.com. Hardcopies are available at affordable prices.
