Who this book is for
The book is intended for those who want to learn how to use Java's machine learning libraries to gain insights from your data. Perhaps you already know a bit about machine learning, but have never used Java; or perhaps you know a little Java, but are new to machine learning. In either case, this book will get you up and running quickly, providing you with the skills that you need to successfully create, customize, and deploy machine learning applications in real life. It would be helpful to be a little familiar with basic programming and data mining concepts, but no prior experience with data mining packages is necessary.
