3 points when choosing a book

Currently, there are many AI-related books in the world. But not all books are good books. If you choose books haphazardly, you run the risk of wasting your time without getting the information you want.

How can I choose a good book for myself?

Here are my top three recommendations for choosing books:

Choose a book that suits your level

It can be said that choosing a book that matches your level is very important in preventing mistakes in book selection.

The books introduced above are divided by level, so please refer to them.

▼ Specific guideline for level

  • Beginners: know little about AI, have never touched Python
  • Intermediate: Understand the basics of AI, have created something using Python
  • Advanced: AI engineers who run AI-based businesses

Refer to reviews

A book with good reviews is likely to be a good book. If you look at reviews, you can refer to the opinions of people who have actually read them, so you can know the specifics of the content, and it is easy to imagine what will happen after reading them.

The books recommended by the AINOW editorial department this time, such as “Can artificial intelligence surpass humans?”

It is a good idea to refer to review sites such as Amazon reviews and reader meters.

Try it out at a bookstore

I think going to a bookstore and actually reading a little bit is the least likely way to make a mistake in choosing a book.

Even if a book is a bestseller and has a good reputation, you won’t know if the book is right for you until you read it.

It takes more time than buying online, but it is the most reasonable method for those who do not want to make mistakes.

before reading the introduction of the book

From here, I will introduce the actual book.

In this article, each book has a review and the URL of the source of the review.

If you find a book that you are interested in by looking at the reviews, jump to the URL and see other people’s reviews.

For the time being, it’s not bad to buy and read, but books are expensive and take time to read. Title and some reviews,

Don’t make impulse purchases based on your motivation at the time. I bought it and read it, but it’s a waste to say it’s wrong.

Beginners (who know very little about AI)

I would like to introduce a book that can be read as an introduction for those who have little knowledge about AI.

1st Place: The easiest machine learning project textbook

It is full of business growth know-how using machine learning that can be understood without knowledge of IT or mathematics. A wide range of explanations from basic knowledge of AI / machine learning to strategy planning and execution to incorporate into business. Get all the knowledge you need to know as a project leader in one book.

reader review

I have a vague understanding of how to proceed with a machine learning project, but I picked up this book to learn more. It comprehensively and carefully explains the points that you may be concerned about when actually proceeding with a machine learning project.

Even if you are not normally involved in machine learning projects, please read it. And I think how good it would be if they were interested in machine learning projects and actually started implementing them.

2. Can artificial intelligence surpass humans?

content

In this book, Mr. Yutaka Matsuo, a top-class researcher in Japan who has served as editorial chairman and ethics committee chairman at the Japanese Society for Artificial Intelligence, carefully traces the historical trial and error that artificial intelligence research has undergone so far, and its future. It even points out images and possible problems.

Incorporating not only information engineering, electronic engineering, and brain science, but also knowledge of the web and philosophy, it explains in an easy-to-understand manner “what AI can do now, what it cannot do, and what it will be able to do in the future.”

reader review

I’ve been interested in it for a long time, but I didn’t feel like reading it, but I finally finished reading it. The standing position of artificial intelligence in modern times from the first boom of artificial intelligence was carefully explained. The diagram of deep learning on p161 was very easy to imagine. This book is recommended for beginners who want to study DL.

3rd place A book that teaches almost all about artificial intelligence taught by Maki Sakamoto

content

This book is a book that explains AI, which is difficult for ordinary people to understand even the terminology, from the basics to representative themes related to research for those who have no related knowledge, using many illustrations in an easy-to-understand manner.

reader review

I have a little knowledge of C language, but I was able to understand it with only this one book.
It’s easier to understand if you have C language, but he explains so that you can understand even if you have no knowledge.

Therefore, it is perfect for you who are interested in artificial intelligence but don’t like it to be difficult!
You can concentrate 100 times more just by reading a book with comics in between. It was perfect for me because I felt like I was studying with only letters and lost my motivation.

reader review

As the title of Python 100 Knock, it is a book that describes Python practice code in a form that matches the actual site. Starting from reading data with pandas, we handle data shaping of csv files, image processing and language processing, and optimization problems.

Personally, the code itself is very easy to understand, and the explanation is written in some detail, so I learned a lot. There is also a sample code, so if you get stuck, you can refer to it and proceed. I tried 100 books, but depending on the development environment, I can learn things other than Python, so I recommend it.

Recommended AI-related books for business people

Here are some recommended books for those who are currently thinking about using AI in their own work or company.

1st machine learning at work

content

2nd place AI business that you want to know now

content

This book is an AI business written for businessmen and students who want to know how AI is involved in our work, and for managers and business people who are actually thinking about introducing AI. is an introductory book.

reader review

A book written about AI from a business perspective. The author seems to live in the United States, and talks about the misunderstanding of Japan’s AI and the lack of technology. AI is one of the tools. Japanese people tend to think that AI will take their jobs, but Americans seem to think that AI will do the troublesome work for them!

If we don’t think about coexisting with AI and making better things, we’ll be late for the future. Also, Japanese people keep their data in their hands, but in the United States, they disclose the data and raise it even further.

3. Artificial Intelligence: How to Deal with Machines (Harvard Business Review)

content

In this book, eight papers by AI authorities are published, and examples of the use of machine learning, such as the story of China’s Alibaba strategy and the case of Google, are listed. It also explains in detail the weaknesses and strengths of AI compared to humans, and the impact AI will have on each company and organization.

reader review

Articles focusing on AI x business. I don’t write about technical things, but there are plenty of articles about how to make use of it. Especially when it comes to automating work with AI, people tend to have a negative image that they will soon be unable to work.

In the first place, tools are adopted because they can do better than humans can. thought.

4th: 7 rules for introducing AI to maximize return on investment

content

In this book, the concept of AI business utilization is summarized in the 7 rules. This book explains the theory of machine learning in an easy-to-understand manner without dealing with difficult theories or complicated formulas, and explains the points that should be kept in mind when using it in business.

reader review

It’s more for young leaders in machine learning projects than AI itself, or for the type of people who make a fuss about AI but don’t really understand it.

It’s not that it’s bad to have people like that, but if you let such people know the key points of the project and leave it to them, you can normally introduce machine learning to any industry or work genre.

I felt that if the style of this book becomes common, the gap between those who are familiar with it and those who are not will be filled considerably.

5th place Deep learning utilization textbook

content

This book explains the impact of deep learning using many use cases. Chapter 1 explains the “technological development of AI based on deep learning” (roadmap) drawn by Yutaka Matsuo, a project associate professor at the Graduate School of Engineering, the University of Tokyo. Chapters 2 to 5 classify and introduce advanced cases in Japan based on this roadmap.

reader review

AI is called AI, but how is it actually introduced in the business field? When I wanted to know more familiar cases instead of GAFA, I found this book. The case studies of 35 companies are not very long, but they are well-reported, and they even write, “Is it okay to reveal this much!?” I learned a lot.

Recommended books for programming beginners

Here are some recommended books for those who don’t know what programming is, or for those who are studying at university but don’t have a solid foundation.

Basics of programming you can learn at home

content

You can understand how programs work! In this book, we will proceed with learning while actually checking “how the program works” on a home PC. You can learn while experiencing “the relationship between hardware and programs” and “the relationship between OS and programs”, so even beginners can learn without difficulty. Also, at the end of the book, I carefully explained the mechanism of how bugs occur and the differences between each programming language. This is a book that I would like to read not only for those who want to learn programming from now on, but also for active programmers.

reader review

Basic knowledge of computers, simple program operation, knowledge of various programming languages, etc. are summarized in an easy-to-understand manner. You won’t be able to write programs at all with this one book, but it was very easy to understand as the first book.

Fundamentals of programming basics to start with

content

This is the revised 3rd edition of the well-established introductory programming book, “Fundamentals of programming that starts from now on”.

In addition to reviewing the examples of particularly important things in this book so that they are easier for current readers to understand, we have also updated the programming environment/language taken up to make them easier to understand. Is the same).

Even the first edition has far exceeded 10 printings, and it is a standard book that has already counted more than 10 printings since the last revision.

Written for the one and only truly beginner programming

reader review

Regardless of the language, programming terms and concepts are verbalized with everyday examples, and the whole picture of programming has become clearer than before. I am grateful for the simple explanation of difficult points such as structures and pointers that I come across when studying the C language.

Introductory programming course

With outstanding fun and easy to understand, all generations from elementary school students to adults will be hooked!

reader review

A real first book to read. A book that introduces a study method that focuses on “how to start and continue without getting discouraged,” such as the mindset that people who are excited about programming want to remember first, the order of learning, where to learn, etc. Become. You can’t learn anything from this book alone, so try one or more of the learning methods introduced and continue with the one that suits you. and books, etc. It is also recommended to choose the language to learn according to what you want to do.

Study for exams and qualifications

Probably, those who want to get a job related to AI will study to acquire some language or some skill.

However, even after starting to study, there must be some people who do not have the motivation to continue, or who are unsure about what to learn and how much.

For such people, we recommend that you aim to obtain a test or qualification.

As a reason, there are many books and videos because many people have received tests and qualifications.

In addition, the content of the test is also specified, so you won’t get lost as if you weren’t studying.

In addition, when you apply for the test, you will be given a date for the test. In that case, it is easier to keep your motivation because you have to finish your studies by then.

Therefore, from here, we will introduce books on famous AI-related tests.

Recommended books for G test

First of all, I will introduce three recommended books for the G test.

reader review

A book to read after learning Python and similar programming languages ​​in the first year of college or Information I. The important concepts in actually writing the code are held down, and there is a feeling of hesitation. There’s nothing particularly unnatural about the translation, and it’s not as bad as people say. Rather, I think it is a good book that will raise you from the introductory level to the beginner level. You can also study the glossary in the appendix.

reader review

Touch Python for the first time without any problems in programming. I read this book to know the overall grammar, function and usage. I am grateful for this book, as many books deal only with an introduction from scratch or an overview necessary for data science.

Recommended books on statistical tests

Statistical test is a test made by the Japan Statistical Society.

Statistics is an essential skill in analyzing data. From now on, the importance of data analysis will increase, so I think it’s a good idea to study.

Statistical tests test your skills in data analysis using statistics, so they are useful for those who are thinking of studying data analysis.

Here are some recommended books.

Introduction to Statistics (Fundamental Statistics I)

content

A classic long-seller in statistics that has been loved for many years

It was edited and written to provide an easy explanation of the basics of statistical thinking and a systematic knowledge of statistics for students of both liberal arts and science. While using a wealth of actual examples, we have incorporated many charts and charts so that it is visually easy to understand and easy to learn.

reader review

One week for now. When it comes to statistics textbooks, this one is a classic among classics. I studied it as a textbook for statistical tests, but it’s probably a seed book for level 2 of the same test. The structure is solid, and if you read it while understanding it from the beginning, you will be able to slowly build up the bricks and reach the theory of multiple regression analysis. However, since the first edition is old, the examples are not actual, and it is somewhat difficult for those who are not good at handling mathematical formulas (like me). The learning procedure should follow this textbook, so I think it would be good to make up for unclear points in classes or other textbooks.

statistics for beginners

content

Because the future is uncertain, we need a compass to move forward.

Especially in the business scene, it is “probability and statistics theory”.

This book contains many examples of “probability and statistics” that are overflowing with everyday life, such as “rock-paper-scissors”, “pachinko/lottery”, and “precipitation probability”.

By speaking plainly, it is a book that serves as an opportunity to learn about “probability and statistics,” and it is a book that helps us understand the movement and structure of society.

reader review

I think that it is easy to understand as it is written as an introduction. However, in terms of deepening understanding, there are some points that are unsatisfactory. If you read it once, you may not understand it, so if you read it several more times and solve the problems, you may get a different impression. A book to keep on hand.

Introduction to Statistics (2nd Edition): From Tests to Multivariate Analysis, Design of Experiments, and Bayesian Statistics

content

You can learn all about statistics!!

Readers who do not understand analysis methods can learn statistics in general with this one book. Furthermore, you can acquire statistical knowledge by solving examples and exercises. Rather than sticking to formulas, I explain so that you can understand the thinking behind the analysis.

reader review

Since I took the Statistical Test Level 2 before, I haven’t used it at work and I’m starting to forget it, so I’m reviewing it in this book. By reading this book, I was able to recall a little of my knowledge of statistics, such as tests and interval estimation, which had faded from memory. In terms of content, there are many concrete examples, making it easy to read even for those who are not good at mathematical formulas. Conversely, if you are good at mathematics, you may feel that it is roundabout. The sentences written in a colloquial style may differ in taste, but I personally liked it because it was easy to approach. I would like to reread it regularly to keep my knowledge.

Recommended books for data scientist certification

The data scientist test is a relatively new test that was first conducted in September 2021.

A data scientist is a job that analyzes data and solves problems, and the demand is increasing year by year.

The data scientist certification tests the knowledge required to be a data scientist.

Therefore, it is a slightly higher level test, so we recommend that those who have a level of about level 2 of the statistical test take the test.

Here are some recommended books.

Shortest breakthrough data scientist test (literacy level) official reference book 2nd edition

content

From the June 2022 exam, the “Data Scientist Skill Checklist”, which is the scope of questions, will be changed from ver.3 to ver.4.

As a result, the total number of skill items increased to 185, and the main points and learning points are explained one by one from the basics. The authors, who are active on the front line, explain specific scenes, so you can acquire the solid power of a data scientist. In addition, the mock test in the appendix allows you to get an image of the questions that will be asked in the test.

reader review

I don’t think you can pass the exam just by reading this book. Especially for the mathematical part, I use this book as a reference to understand the exam range, and I can hardly understand the meaning unless I see explanations of probability and statistics on Youtube.

Also, if you look at the errata that can be seen from the URL at the end of the book, you can see that there are many corrections. Please see the errata first and correct the text. There are quite a few places where the explanation is wrong, not a typo.

I bought the 2nd edition, but the errata “Scheduled to be corrected in the 2nd edition” was not fixed, so it’s a disappointing finish.

Thorough capture data scientist test problem collection [literacy level] correspondence

content

Data scientist test (commonly known as DS test) started in 2021. It is a collection of problems corresponding to the “literacy level” test!

The data scientist certification literacy level exam requires knowledge of the three powers of “data science power”, “data engineer power”, and “business power”. You can study in a well-balanced manner because the problems and detailed explanations corresponding to each field are well covered.

reader review

The content is quite easy, but on the contrary, it makes me worried. Will I be able to take the exam after solving this? I think it was a good review.
