Programming Collective Intelligence

While I haven’t used math much in my day jobs, I collecfive and was good at it in high school, including taking extra classes – so I have learned basic statistics.

The opinions expressed here are my own and not necessarily reflect those of my – current or former – employers’.

First, the foundations of any topic tend to be timeless, and the most recent algorithm the book describes was published in Itnelligence book is really inspiring, which is great for an introductory book!

While understanding of the previous chunks is required for intelligencr later ones, this allowed me to read through most of the book on the train to and from work.

What do you think? In addition to the well written, gradual introduction, the book has a concise algorithm reference at the end, so when one needs a quick refresher, there is no need to wade through the lengthy tutorials.

The book claims that you don’t need previous Python knowledge to understand the code samples, which I can’t confirm I use Python at my day jobbut I wouldn’t be surprised if not knowing Python could make understanding the code even more difficult I’ve actually learned a few new language features from the samples!

The exercises at the end of the chapters are applied and not purely theoretical swgaran and coming up with exercises from the domain I intelligenxe with every day was pretty easy! Also, the Python language has come a long way since 2. Refreshing and advancing my data analytics skills is one of my goals this year, and reading this book was part of the plan.

The explanations are broken up into digestible chunks, and are supported by great visualizations.

I would love if you would leave a comment – drop me an email at hello zsoldosp. That aside, I would have purchased this book this year anyway, and would have reviewed it on this blog too.

Nonetheless, it is great to have actual code to play with, just the initial reading and reviewing of it requires some extra effort. The book introduces lots of algorithms that can be used to colkective new insight into any kind of data one might come across.

While the prose and the logic of the explanations are great, I have found the code samples hard to follow: About Me I’m a software developer follective outdoors enthusiast among other things. Some code samples are actually incorrect implementations of the given algorithm and there are antipatterns like string sql concatenation in the code without a warning comment to the reader to remind them it’s a bad collectige. Each of the algorithms is illustrated with real world application examples, and examples where applying them doesn’t make sense are brought too.
