** Octave resources: **
For a free alternative to Matlab, check out GNU Octave. The official
documentation is available here.
Some useful tutorials on Octave include http://homepages.nyu.edu/~kpl2/dsts6/octaveTutorial.html
and http://wiki.aims.ac.za/mediawiki/index.php/Octave.

**Data: **
Here is the
UCI Machine learning repository, which contains a large collection
of standard datasets for testing learning algorithms. If you want to
see examples of recent work in machine learning, start by taking a look
at the conferences NIPS (all old NIPS
papers are online) and ICML. Some other related conferences
include UAI, AAAI, IJCAI.
