Combines information theory and statistical learning components in one volume
Many chapters are contributed by authors who pioneered the presented methods themselves
Interdisciplinary approach makes this book accessible to researchers and professionals in many areas of study
Information Theory and Statistical Learning presents theoretical and practical results about information theoretic methods used in the context of statistical learning.
The book will present a comprehensive overview of the large range of different methods that have been developed in a multitude of contexts. Each chapter is written by an expert in the field. The book is intended for an interdisciplinary readership working in machine learning, applied statistics, artificial intelligence, biostatistics, computational biology, bioinformatics, web mining or related disciplines.
Advance Praise for Information Theory and Statistical Learning:
"A new epoch has arrived for information sciences to integrate various disciplines such as information theory, machine learning, statistical inference, data mining, model selection etc. I am enthusiastic about recommending the present book to researchers and students, because it summarizes most of these new emerging subjects and methods, which are otherwise scattered in many places."
