I tried to run the example from chapter 4 of the book ‘Programming Collective Intelligence’ by Toby Segaran. I type in interpreter this code:. While the prose and the logic of the explanations are great, I have found the code samples hard to follow: Helio Gracie 58 1 8.

Refreshing and advancing my data analytics skills is one of my goals this year, and reading this book was part of intepligence plan. These codes are described in detail so that they may used immediately on personal blogs, websites or other applications. Add 3 Items to Cart. Sign up or log intellugence Sign up using Google.

What do you think? Some code samples are actually incorrect implementations of the given algorithm and there collwctive antipatterns like string sql concatenation in the code without a warning comment to the reader to remind them it’s a bad practice. The explanations are broken up into digestible chunks, and are supported by great visualizations. Also, the Python language has come a long way since 2.

This is kind of a quick start guide. Code examples are given.

Programming Collective Intelligence: Building Smart Web 2.0 Applications

The book introduces lots of algorithms that can be used to gain new insight into any kind of data one might come across. The book claims that you don’t need previous Python knowledge to understand the code inttelligence, which I can’t confirm I use Python at my day segaanbut 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!

Programming Collective Intelligence – O’Reilly Media

The book was written inbut is not dated. This book is a delight to read for any beginner in machine learning. The exercises at the end of the chapters are applied and not purely theoretical – and coming up with exercises from the domain I work with every day was pretty easy! This text was released in and had sold over 20, copies since Each of the algorithms is illustrated with real world application examples, and examples where applying them doesn’t make sense are brought too.


Through Programming Collective Intelligencereaders will delve into the topic of writing algorithm codes in order to generate information about user experience, personal tastes, marketing, and general patterns in human behaviour. Nonetheless, it is great to have actual code to play with, just the initial reading and reviewing of it requires some extra effort.
