Elements of Causal Inference: Foundations and Learning Algorithms
by J. Peters, D. Janzing, B. Schölkopf
Publisher: The MIT Press 2017
Number of pages: 289
This book offers a self-contained and concise introduction to causal models and how to learn them from data. After explaining the need for causal models and discussing some of the principles underlying causal inference, the book teaches readers how to use causal models: how to compute intervention distributions, how to infer causal models from observational and interventional data, and how causal ideas could be exploited for classical machine learning problems.

This work presents a concise description of some popular time series forecasting models used in practice, with their features. We describe three important classes of time series models, viz. the stochastic, neural networks and SVM based models.

Inductive Logic Programming is a new discipline which investigates the inductive construction of first-order clausal theories from examples and background knowledge. The authors survey the most important theories and methods of this new field.

Over the past two decades Machine Learning has become one of the mainstays of information technology and a rather central part of our life. Smart data analysis will become even more pervasive as a necessary ingredient for technological progress.

This handbook aims to present the statistical foundations of machine learning intended as the discipline which deals with the automatic design of models from data. This manuscript aims to find a good balance between theory and practice.
