Product Description

Review

"This landmark book provides a very extensive coverage of the field, ranging from basic representational issues to the latest techniques for approximate inference and learning. As such, it is likely to become a definitive reference for all those who work in this area. Detailed worked examples and case studies also make the book accessible to students."--Kevin Murphy, Department of Computer Science, University of British Columbia

Format: Hardcover
This is the most complete book so far I've read on the topic with excellent description of the algorithms and models and a thorough presentation of proof. It's orientated toward Probabilistic Graphical Models only (as the title says), which means you cannot expect to read too much about other aspect of the classical Bayesian theory (I advise Christian Robert's book: A Bayesian choice, for that purpose).

The book is graduate level and needs the reader to have solid skills in linear algebra, probabilities and statistics to make the most of it.

What I really like about this book is the fact it only focus on one topic: Graphical models and do not try to cover Machine Learning in general. The consequence of that is its thorough treatment of many aspects of graphical models which is rare in the literature. That's why I highly and warmly recommend this book.

A masterwork by two acknowledged masters. Dispels existing confusion and leads directly to further and worse confusion. Could use more humorous anecdotes, to help it flow. Goes beautifully with Daphne's coursera course.

This is an excellent but heavy going book on probabilistic graphic models. Covers most of the useful and interesting stuff in the field. But not much insight highlighted. You will need to find your gold in the book.
relevant chapters in Pattern Recognition and Machine learning by Bishop might be an easier starter, and you might learn more insight by just reading through. Come back to this book as this has much more detailed treatment, but be warned, it is very dry.

This is a good reference book on probabilistic graph algorithms. The book is well written and covers computation and machine learning subjects to medium depth level. Good value for the money spent
