Understanding math will make you a better engineer.
Imagine a translating device that allows you to engage in fluent conversations with any person in the world, regardless of the language. This is what mathematics can do for you in science and engineering.
So, I am working to create the best book to study the mathematics of machine learning.

What the readers say
With great pleasure I can recommend this wonderful book the creation of which I experience every week. You can explore it in pdf, html and jupyter notebooks.Ryszard ZygałaData scientist, PhDfrom Poland
This book is a fantastic resource for those who want to understand the foundations of ML algorithms and are no longer satisfied with considering them as 'black boxes'. BTW with the 'early access' scheme, waiting for the next chapter to be published feels like waiting for your favourite weekly TV show. Nice.Adam HulmanSenior Data Scientistfrom Denmark
Very impressed with what you’ve done with the book. As someone who’s not an expert in math I found your material super helpful. Thank you!Parviz D.Lead Solutions Architectfrom the US
Being part of early access gives the reader the pleasure to travel with the author. I'm enjoying it thoroughly. Even more excited about what awaits 2 years from now as per your roadmap. I'm sure this will be a gold mine for data science enthusiasts and practitioners.Raj ArunLead - Analytics & Data Sciencefrom India
Math explained, as simple as possible.
Every concept is explained step by step, from elementary to advanced. No fancy tricks and mathematical magic. Intuition and motivation first, technical explanations second.
Open up the black boxes.
Machine learning is full of mysterious black boxes. Looking inside them allows you to be a master of your field and always understand what is going on.
