Book review:Programming Collective Intelligence
Programming Collective Intelligence: Building Smart Web 2.0 Applications by Toby Segaran
I have always wanted to explore classification methods and their theory to see how I can apply these to bioinformatics. But so far I have yet to encounter a book or website that explains the topic well with examples that you can do. It's a bonus that the examples are written in Python a language I know and has highly readable code for those that do not know.
Although the examples are not from biology but it is easy to see how some classical biological problems can be solved by SVM.
p.s. This amazon associates widget is cool! it will throw up relevant books based on my words in the blog post!
