### Learning deep learning with Mxnet Gluon

A book made of jupyter notebooks on github. All examples are runnable. mxnet Gluon is highly flexible and very suitable for researchers. 中文版

### Adventures in Data Land

Alex's blog with many ideas and practical tricks for using ML.

### Csaba Szepesvari's blog on Bandits

Mostly stochastic and adversarial linear bandits.

### Larry Wasserman's blog: Normal Deviate

Cool blog from the CMU statistician on statistics and machine learning topics.

### John Langford's blog: hunch.net

A renowned machine learning theory blog. A few good/interesting posts per month. To have a flavor, check out the article: Adversarial Academia.

### Matrix Factorization Jungle

A comprehensive site that keeps updating the state-of-the-art algorithms, theory and evaluations in MF related fields, including: Matrix Completion, Matrix Recovery(RPCA), Compressive Sensing, Dictionary learning, Non-negative Matrix Factorization and etc.

### Nuit Blanche blog on Compressive Sensing and Matrix Factorization

The maintainer of Matrix Factorization Jungle (Igor Carron), articles are faster than updates on the summary site.

### Compressive sensing resources

An almost thorough list of compressive sensing papers, reviews and tutorials.

### Ma Yi's Low-rank matrix recovery & completion page

A list of papers on nuclear norm based convex methods for low-rank matrix. Useful code samples of Augmented Lagrange Multiplier methods for RPCA.
