The field of machine learning has experienced significant growth in the past two decades as new algorithms and techniques have been developed and new research and applications have emerged. This series reflects the latest advances and applications in machine learning and pattern recognition through the publication of a broad range of reference works, textbooks, and handbooks. We are looking for single authored works and edited collections that will:
The inclusion of concrete examples, applications, and methods is highly encouraged. The scope of the series includes, but is not limited to, titles in the areas of machine learning, pattern recognition, computational intelligence, robotics, computational/statistical learning theory, natural language processing, computer vision, game AI, game theory, neural networks, and computational neuroscience. We are also willing to consider other relevant topics, such as machine learning applied to bioinformatics or cognitive science, which might be proposed by potential contributors.
