    $\begingroup$ There are plenty of datasets available for applying and testing machine learning algorithms. I'd have a look at: archive.ics.uci.edu/ml/datasets.html $\endgroup$

The MATLAB files for the book are accessible here.

I'm not familiar with the text, but there are .mat files in the zip named



which probably contain the data. There are also a handful of TIFF files (images) from which he draws the other data.
