Automatic Differentiation in MATLAB using ADMAT with Applications÷discusses the efficient use of AD to solve real problems, especially multidimensional zero-finding and optimization, in the MATLAB environment. This book is concerned with the determination of the first and second derivatives in the context of solving scientific computing problems with an emphasis on optimization and solutions to nonlinear systems. The authors focus on the application rather than the implementation of AD, solve real nonlinear problems with high performance by exploiting the problem structure in the application of AD, and provide many easy to understand applications, examples, and MATLAB templates.÷
Machine Learning for Multimedia Content Analysis introduces machine learning techniques that are particularly powerful and effective for modeling spatial, temporal structures of multimedia data and for accomplishing common tasks of multimedia content analysis. This book systematically covers these techniques in an intuitive fashion and demonstrates their applications through case studies. This volume uses a large number of figures to illustrate and visualize complex concepts, and provides insights into the characteristics of many algorithms through examinations of their loss functions and straightforward comparisons.
Machine Learning for Multimedia Content Analysis is designed for an academic and professional audience. Researchers will find this book an invaluable tool for applying machine learning techniques to multimedia content analysis. This volume is also suitable for practitioners in industry.
