Get The LION way, version 3.0
We believe that education should be for everybody and our book is available for free on this web site.
The opinions of our readers
give additional hints about the book style.
A wonderfully warm introduction to Machine Learning,
Informative and well written,
Couldn't stop reading,
Smooth read, covers the essential ideas, will help even experienced practitioners avoid mistakes.
After reading the awesome LIONbook, I'd like to play around and apply the
methodologies in some of my personal research topics.
NOTE: we are currently completing Version 4.0, which will be ready at the beginning of 2023.
Therefore the old version is not available anymore.
In the meantime you can get the first chapters of Version 4.0 above.
If you are adopting the book for courses,
some slides and exercises are available at the LIONcommunity
