In this book, the Machine Learning approaches for Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring have been studied. Within all the techniques explored by the scientific community, this work has been focused on the hidden Markov model based and the deep neural network based, since their capability and promising performance at the forefront of the improvements could be introduced.
