Some Practical Aspects to Know About

  • Miroslav Kubat


The engineer who wants to avoid disappointment has to be aware of certain machine-learning apects that, for the sake of clarity, our introduction to the basic techniques had to neglect. To present some of the most important ones is the task for this chapter.
