Machine Learning with Swift

Overview of this book

Machine learning as a field promises to bring increased intelligence to the software by helping us learn and analyse information efficiently and discover certain patterns that humans cannot. This book will be your guide as you embark on an exciting journey in machine learning using the popular Swift language. We’ll start with machine learning basics in the first part of the book to develop a lasting intuition about fundamental machine learning concepts. We explore various supervised and unsupervised statistical learning techniques and how to implement them in Swift, while the third section walks you through deep learning techniques with the help of typical real-world cases. In the last section, we will dive into some hard core topics such as model compression, GPU acceleration and provide some recommendations to avoid common mistakes during machine learning application development. By the end of the book, you'll be able to develop intelligent applications written in Swift that can learn for themselves.

NLP libraries


In this section we will discuss the various NLP libraries:

Word2Vec

This is the original C implementation of the Word2Vec algorithm. It works on iOS, but consumes a significant amount of memory. It was released under the Apache 2.0 license.

Twitter text

Parsing tweets is a common task in NLP. Tweets usually contain some unusual language (like usernames), they mention headers, hashtags, cashtags, and so on. Twitter provides an Objective-C API for tweet processing. This has nothing to do with machine learning per se, but it is still a useful tool for data preprocessing.
