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.

Implementing Apriori in Swift

What will follow is a simplified version of a code that can be found in supplementary materials. We will skip some of the less important parts here.

The main method, which returns association rules with the given support and confidence, is as follows:

public func associationRules(minSupport: Double, minConfidence: Double) -> [Rule] { 
    var rules = [Rule]() 
    let frequent = frequentItemSets(minSupport: minSupport) 
    for itemSet in frequent { 
        for (ifPart, thenPart) in nonOverlappingSubsetPairs(itemSet) { 
            if confidence(ifPart, thenPart) >= minConfidence { 
                let rule = Rule(ifPart: convertIndexesToItems(ifPart), thenPart: convertIndexesToItems(thenPart)) 
    return rules 
func nonOverlappingSubsetPairs(_ itemSet: ItemSet) -> [(ItemSet, ItemSet)] { 
    var result = [(ItemSet, ItemSet)]() 
    let ifParts = Subsets(itemSet)
