Semi-Supervised Learning is a class of supervised learning tasks that also make use of unlabeled data for training – typically a small amount of labeled data with a large amount of unlabelled data. Semi-supervised learning falls between unsupervised learning (without any labeled training data) and supervised learning (with completely labeled training data). Many machine-learning researchers have found that unlabelled data, when used in conjunction with a small amount of labeled data, can produce considerable improvement in learning accuracy. Semi-supervised learning is also of theoretical interest in machine learning and as a model for human learning. Methods of semi-supervise learning include generative methods, low-density separation, graph-based methods, heuristic approaches.

| Data Science from Scratch: First Principles with Python
Data science libraries, frameworks, modules, and toolkits are great for doing data science, but they’re also a good way to dive into the discipline without actually understanding data science. In this book, you’ll learn how many of the most fundamental data science tools and algorithms work by implementing them from scratch.
If you have an aptitude for mathematics and some programming skills, author Joel Grus will help you get comfortable with the math and statistics at the core of data science, and with hacking skills you need to get started as a data scientist. Today’s messy glut of data holds answers to questions no one’s even thought to ask. This book provides you with the know-how to dig those answers out.
