comment What skills are needed for machine learning jobs?
Downvoted because that's a horribly dense book for a beginner. The "Data Mining" book by the Weka authors is more appropriate.

comment research papers vs books
It varies tremendously by topic. Some Wikipedia articles are exhaustive, while others are not. Just dive in and start reading. And then once you've become one of the world's leading experts in your field, go back and edit the Wikipedia article with references to help others out.

comment research papers vs books
@AmirNasr: Certainly books can cite and paraphrase material from earlier research papers. Any graduate-level textbook will typically contain dozens or hundreds of references to papers. Regarding Wikipedia, I have not found it to be as comprehensive for specific topics as a dedicated books. The most technical and single-topic-specific books are from Springer, as those books seem to be generally written by PhD-educated professors or researchers.

comment Simplified knapsack in PHP
You need to fully specify the parameters of the problem. Are the parameters: total length of the text; the number of words; the length of each word; the number of lines; the number of characters per line? Are these all parameters?
