Library E-Books

We have signed up with three aggregators who resell networkable e-book editions of our titles to academic libraries. These aggregators offer a variety of plans to libraries, such as simultaneous access by multiple library patrons, and access to portions of titles at a fraction of list price under what is commonly referred to as a “patron-driven demand” model.

These editions, priced at par with simultaneous hardcover editions of our titles, are not available direct from Stylus, but only from the following aggregators:

  • Ebook Library, a service of Ebooks Corporation Ltd. of Australia
  • ebrary, based in Palo Alto, a subsidiary of ProQuest
  • EBSCO / netLibrary, Alabama

as well as through the following wholesalers: The Yankee Book Peddler subsidiary of Baker & Taylor, Inc.

This book is for developers who are looking for an introduction to basic concepts in NLP and machine learning. Numerous code samples and listings are included to support myriad topics. The first two chapters contain introductory material for NumPy and Pandas, followed by chapters on NLP concepts, algorithms and toolkits, machine learning, and NLP applications. The final chapters include examples of NLP tasks using TF2 and Keras, the Transformer architecture, BERT-based models, and the GPT family of models. The appendices contain introductory material (including Python code samples) for various topics, including data and statistics, Python3, regular expressions, Keras, TF2, Matplotlib and Seaborn. Companion files with source code and figures are included.
