Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning by Christopher M. BishopPattern recognition has its origins in engineering, whereas machine learning grew out of computer science. However, these activities can be viewed as two facets of the same field, and together they have undergone substantial development over the past ten years. In particular, Bayesian methods have grown from a specialist niche to become mainstream, while graphical models have emerged as a general framework for describing and applying probabilistic models. Also, the practical applicability of Bayesian methods has been greatly enhanced through the development of a range of approximate inference algorithms such as variational Bayes and expectation propagation. Similarly, new models based on kernels have had a significant impact on both algorithms and applications. This new textbook reflects these recent developments while providing a comprehensive introduction to the fields of pattern recognition and machine learning. It is aimed at advanced undergraduates or first-year PhD students, as well as researchers and practitioners, and assumes no previous knowledge of pattern recognition or machine learning concepts. Knowledge of multivariate calculus and basic linear algebra is required, and some familiarity with probabilities would be helpful though not essential as the book includes a self-contained introduction to basic probability theory.

Pattern recognition is the automated recognition of patterns and regularities in data. Pattern recognition is closely related to artificial intelligence and machine learning ,  together with applications such as data mining and knowledge discovery in databases KDD , and is often used interchangeably with these terms. However, these are distinguished: machine learning is one approach to pattern recognition, while other approaches include hand-crafted not learned rules or heuristics ; and pattern recognition is one approach to artificial intelligence, while other approaches include symbolic artificial intelligence. The field of pattern recognition is concerned with the automatic discovery of regularities in data through the use of computer algorithms and with the use of these regularities to take actions such as classifying the data into different categories. This article focuses on machine learning approaches to pattern recognition. Pattern recognition systems are in many cases trained from labeled "training" data supervised learning , but when no labeled data are available other algorithms can be used to discover previously unknown patterns unsupervised learning.
Deep learning, machine learning, and pattern recognition are highly relevant topics commonly used in the field of robotics with artificial intelligence. Despite the overlapping similarities, these concepts are not identical. In this article, we will be discussing some of the differences of the three concepts and their applications. Pattern recognition is the oldest form of learning and has become a relatively obsolete term. On the other hand, deep learning is a new and popular topic in the field of artificial intelligence. Machine learning, unlike the other two terms, is a fundamental form of learning and is one of the hottest areas in many start-ups and research labs. The Google Trends image below that shows the recent increase in interest for deep learning.
Comment 1. In very simple language, Pattern Recognition is a type of problem while Machine Learning is a type of solution.

It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. The dramatic growth in practical applications for machine learning over the last ten years has been accompanied by many important developments in the underlying algorithms and techniques. For example, Bayesian methods have grown from a specialist niche to become mainstream, while graphical models have emerged as a general framework for describing and applying probabilistic techniques. The practical applicability of Bayesian methods has been greatly enhanced by the development of a range of approximate inference algorithms such as variational Bayes and expectation propagation, while new models based on kernels have had a significant impact on both algorithms and applications. This completely new textbook reflects these recent developments while providing a comprehensive introduction to the fields of pattern recognition and machine learning. It is aimed at advanced undergraduates or first-year PhD students, as well as researchers and practitioners.
